WEBELOS Weekend 2017 - Camp Grice - October 13-15

The time is near!  Registration ends September 30, and we will not be able to extend the registration this year!  This year we have more troops assisting and we have a group of scouts taking charge this year.  There is a lot of planning to do once registration ends, and until we know who is coming (we have a separate program for the WEBELOS and the Arrow of Light scouts), we can't finalize our plans, so we need to adhere to the deadline.

Things that you need to start planning for: your menus,  shoppers (somebody has to go buy the stuff!), shopping list, duty rosters, and taking inventory of your equipment.  You should be contacting your local boy scout troop.  They can provide guidance; perhaps a couple of boys to assist on the weekend; and after you take inventory of all your combined equipment, they may be able to lend you some equipment that you may be lacking.    Register as soon as you can, before camp fills up (we can only fit 125 scouts).

Why go?!?!  This is an opportunity to see how boy scouts camp, and you are going to meet and spend time with boy scouts, too.  WEBELOS scouts will have games, fishing, archery, learn how to cook [something simple] with a dutch oven, and visit a boy scout camp site or two.  Arrow of Light Scouts will spend most of their time with a boy scout troop, learning about setting up camp, cooking, backpacking, campfires, woods tools, fishing, archery, and they will go on a hike and eat lunch on the trail!

Oh, and then there is the campfire.  Your den will need to do a skit, song or cheer at the campfire. Along with watching, the dens will participate in the campfire program, and the antics that go along with it.

This is where your adventure begins, plan in a little time to work on an advancement or two, some may work well while out in the woods.  Look at your requirements and see what you can accomplish as you simply prepare and go camping.  Get your boys involved and let them see what they will accomplish as they prepare to go and physically go camping!  This is not an advancement weekend, we will not be advancing your scouts.  However, when scouts do what scouts [are supposed to] do, they will advance.  Enjoy the out of doors, the comradery, and the weekend.  Its through this process that the magic of boy scouting happens.

If you have a den chief, get him involved and have him there that weekend.  When you register, register your den chiefs, they will be registered as "Boy Scout", and they will camp for free (although, they'll have to pay for their own food).
