SE / NG Webelos Woods
Participation in the February 2023 Webelos Woods “The Road to Eagle” is open to both Webelos and Arrow of Lights, Scouts BSA, registered Scouters, and parents/adults. Webelos/AOLs will be camping as patrols. Parents are invited to attend this event but should be camping and cooking separately from the Scouts. There will be sessions designed for parents during the morning. We suggest that all Webelos and AOL parents attend these sessions.
WHY WEBELOS WOODS?
Our Cub Scouts experience wonderful activities, but few are exposed to the fun that Scouting under the Patrol Method offers. Webelos Woods is designed to allow Webelos and Arrow of Lights to experience what it is like to camp and act under the Patrol Method with older Scouts guiding and leading the way. The Webelo’s and Arrow of Lights will receive a morning of instruction and in the afternoon get to see Scouts BSA compete in a competition where those skills are used.
Webelos Woods also gives participating older Scouts the opportunity to share the skills they have learned with younger Scouts, thus improving their leadership and camping skills while providing fellowship and positive role modeling. This event has been planned and will be carried out by Eagle Scouts and experienced older scouts from Crew 2319 and other Troops in the District. Scoutmasters will be onsite to provide guidance and oversight, however, the Scouts will run each of the activities.
Webelos/AOLs will camp with their dens for the weekend much like a Patrol in a Scouts BSA troop. Parents/adults will camp separately, observing while allowing the youth to participate in the event. On Saturday the Scouts BSA will work with and train Webelos/AOLs on the various skills and activities.

- Chopping and Sawing wood – Saw and ax skills
