Webelos Rendezvous 2018
Deadline to Register is November 28th
Webelos Leaders and Scoutmasters of the same Charter Organization are encouraged to plan and camp together. If attending with a troop, make sure the parents/guardians are aware that they are required to have an adult attend the campout with their Scout. This is a Cub Scout Event. Food will not be provided. Packs and Troops should plan and prepare all meals.
The Webelos Rendezvous is a two-night campout for 1st and 2nd year Webelos.
The purpose of this event is to inspire the boys to continue in Scouting and cross over into a Boy Scout troop.
A staff will be made up of mostly older Boy Scouts and experienced leaders from different troops throughout the council. This way, the Webelos are provided with a full weekend to interact and learn from “older scouts”. They will also see what a scout camp looks like while being taught valuable skills like campsite selection, kitchen setup, fire building and knot tying. All scouts will participate in camp wide games, skill events, patrol flag competition, evening campfire and see what the future has in store for them in the Boy Scouts.
