Webelos Woods is a camp out designed to introduce Webelos to the many outdoor adventures of Boy Scouting. This awesome weekend event includes patrol-method camping and Scout activities. Webelos patrols compete in Scout skills (e.g., first aid, fire building, camping skills, orienteering, cooking, knots). The Webelos patrols are judged on patrol flag and yell, resources, leadership, teamwork, skill demonstration (from the Webelos Handbook) and Scout spirit.

Registration

Registration is $25.50 for the first Scout and $24 for each additional person and includes Saturday night BBQ dinner, a patch, and camping fees. Registration is typically completed by the den or pack leader. Individuals can register, but please check with your den leader first to make sure they didn't already register the den.

There is a $5 late fee for registrations beginning 10/3/16 and a $10 extra fee for onsite registration. Dinner and patches are not included with late registration.

Registration opens in August.                      Camp Brosig Leader's Guide
