Activities for Cubs, Training for Leaders, Information for Parents – Games for All
Who: Webelos and AOL Cub Scouts and their parents
What: An overnight camping activity to explore What Scouts BSA is like
Why: FUN! Light a fire! Learn to cook outdoors! Be a victim! Learn First Aid! Get lost in the woods! Find your way home!
A chance to meet Local Troops and Scouts
An opportunity to work on Cast Iron Chef, Camper and Castaway sign - offs.
Camp with your Webelos in a Scout Camp!
Adirondacks, two person cabins or your own tent.
Share in a Campfire Program!
Date: Saturday Sept 28th 8:00AM – Sunday Sept 29th 11:00AM
Location: Camp Pigott near Monroe Washington
Cost: Webelos Scout - $35, All others attending $5 (to cover saturday lunch)
Why the different costs? Webelos pay for the program, lunch and patches. Parents and Leaders pay for lunch.
Details: Your Den camps as a group in your own tents or 2 person cabins or Adirondacks in a campsite with bathrooms nearby. There is water, some electricity – for CPAPs, some picnic tables, some supports for dining flys (bring tarps), and some covered dining areas and fire pits. (There might/will also be dry wood available.)
We provide: All activities during the day Saturday (9-5), Saturday lunch, an evening Campfire program, and an interfaith worship service on Sunday morning.
You provide: Camping equipment (tents and sleeping bags), cooking equipment (stoves, dishes) and food for Saturday night dinner (a Cast Iron Chef or Castaway requirement) and Sunday breakfast. Please bring a dessert or snack to share with each other around your campfires back at your campsite after the Program. All you bring will need to be wheel barrowed to the campsite in the afternoon.
Webelos will rotate through Skill Stations Saturday morning and afternoon. (fire building and safety, first aid, backpack cooking,…)
Parents will learn about the BSA program, the transition to Scouts BSA, essential camping skills, gear choices, ask Scoutmasters questions and have a tour of camp to see the stations.
You and your Scouts may come just for the day – but the cost is the same and it is only half the fun!
Please contact your Webelos families and leaders to make plans to attend the returning Webelos Woods Camping event!! Talk with your Dens and sign up soon via the Alpine District Website
Please email your registration questions. I will have posted very soon a much more detailed timetable of events as well as a family planning guide and den leader communications packet.
