Webelos Woods is a campout designed to introduce Webelos to the many outdoor adventures of 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 $31.50 for the first participant and $30 for each additional Scout and leader 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 10/1/18 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

About Camp Brosig

Camp Brosig is a 92-acre council camp, located six miles north of Sealy, TX, in Austin County. 

Scouting Safely

Safety is Your Responsibility posterThe BSA's Commitment to Safety is ongoing and we want you to know that the safety of our youth, volunteers, staff, and employees cannot be compromised. The Boy Scouts of America puts the utmost importance on the safe and healthy environments for its youth membership. The Sam Houston Area Council takes great strides to ensure the safety of its youth as well as the adult volunteer leadership that interacts with them. 

BSA Guide to Safe Scouting policies must be followed. All participants must follow Youth Protection Guidelines at all Scouting events. Highlights include:

  • Two-deep leadership on all outings required.  
  • One-on-one contact between adults and youth members is prohibited. 
  • The buddy system should be used at all times. 
  • Discipline must be constructive.

Health and safety must be integrated into everything we do, to the point that no injuries are acceptable beyond those that are readily treatable by Scout-rendered first aid. As an aid in the continuing effort to protect participants in a Scout activity, the BSA National Health and Safety Committee and the Council Services Division of the BSA National Council have developed the "Sweet Sixteen" of BSA safety procedures for physical activity. These 16 points, which embody good judgment and common sense, are applicable to all activities.
