The Concept and Purpose

Webelos Woods is an outdoor program activity designed to aid in the Webelos to Scout transition plan. The purpose is to help form a desire to know more about Boy Scouting and give WEBELOS a preview of the thrills of Boy Scouting.

Webelos Woods gives Scouts an opportunity to take a step up from Cub Scouting by camping as a Boy Scout Troop does. The weekend is designed as a Patrol activity, much like a Boy Scout Camporee. The boys and adults will be participating in archery, first aid training, knot tying and games, religious services, campfire program and more.

Although the structure is different from Cub-parent weekend campouts, BSA policy still requires an adult to accompany each Bear and/or Webelos Scout
