Webelos Woods 2016 -
Join the tribe of the Webelos
at Camp Barstow

September 16-18, 2016

Register HERE


   The primary goal of the weekend is to introduce Webelos and their parents to the very different model of a boy led system used in the Boy Scouts. Of course the activities will be fun while providing rank advancement opportunities.

There will be program modifications from previous years to take the BSA rank requirement changes into account.
Here's the skinny:
● For Webelos only (and their parents & leaders). Siblings cannot be accommodated.
● Cost is $55.00 for Webelos ($65 on Sept. 1) & $22 for parents / leaders
● Registration is by pack, but individuals will be allowed.
● Registration is reserved upon payment of fees and is first come, first serve, although we will keep a waiting list for overflow
● Leadership ratio is 1 leader to no more than 4 Webelos - keep this in mind when registering
● Webelos will be formed into 12 patrols of no more than 12 boys, space is limited, and you may be in a patrol with folks from others units
● The event program is very similar to a Boy Scout camporee, complete with a competition among the event’s patrols.
● Patrols will be led by a Boy Scout patrol leader and assistant patrol leader
● Patrols will rotate through scheduled activity sessions over the weekend
● Activity sessions will be Boy Scout led
● A ceremonial trail will lead to Saturday night’s campfire & patrol skit competition
● A Boy Scout led non-denominational Christian chapel will be held Sunday morning
● All meals will be in the dining hall (except Saturday dinner -foil packet dinner at campsite)
● Meals served are Friday night snack, breakfast, lunch & dinner Saturday, Sunday breakfast
● Registration fees cover meals, program supplies, insurance and a patch for every registrant
● Class A uniforms are for the Sunday flag parade, chapel & awards ceremony - an activity uniform of Scout shorts and Scout t-shirt are for all other times.
● Check-in begins Friday, Sept. 16 at 4:00 and camp will be clear by noon Sunday

What To Bring: (Pack all gear in duffle bag/heavy trash bag - if it gets dropped, gear stays dry & clean. It may be a 1/4 mile walk to your campsite.

Sleeping bag / sheets & blankets, pillow, tent, flashlights, toothbrush, toiletries, sunscreen, insect repellant, Class A & activity uniforms, rain gear, light jacket for a cool evening, hat. Your Scout's uniform should be marked with his name on the labels and in his hat.

Limited adirondack (3 sided cabins) space is available in almost all camp sites. Webelos need to pitch and sleep in a tent for rank advancement and male/female segregation in accord with the Guide to Safe Scouting must be observed, so adirondack space should be reserved for adults with only one sex in each building. Showers and latrines are centrally located in camp.
