Webelos and their families arrive between 8 and 9:30 AM on Saturday morning. As they arrive, there will be demonstrations of Scouting activities going on with Boy Scouts who will be glad to answer any questions the boys or parents have.  During this time families set up at their assigned campsites.

During the day Saturday Scouts participate in Adventure classes and camp programs. Parents are welcome to quietly sit in on classes or They can take the opportunity to take OWL (Outdoor Webelos Leader) Training during the day. Saturday lunch will be a bag lunch in your campsite

The fee for the weekend includes one parent/scout pair. This covers a patch for the scout, breakfast on Sunday, and activity pin class supplies as well as other activity supplies. T-Shirts may be purchased at an additional cost. Additional Scouts and/or siblings will be charged a nominal fee.

Because cooking outdoors is such a big part of camping families will be cooking Saturday supper outside. Packs will provide their own food and cooking equipment. Your campsite guide will be available to assist you. There is water available in each campsite. The evening will finish off with an entertaining campfire program and other evening activities before sending you to bed.

Please be aware that temperatures can dip to freezing at this time of year.  Having a sleeping bag rated at 30 degrees or better is preferred although a 40 degree bag and a little extra clothing should work just as well. And also be aware that no scout will be allowed to sleep in a tent with an adult who is not his parent/legal guardian.

You’ll wake Sunday morning refreshed, be fed a hot and hearty breakfast, get some time to pack up and then, our farewell ceremony.  Awards and event patches will be given out and everyone should be off by 10 AM. 

Pre-registration by the deadline, earlier if possible,  is required and helps greatly with planning, buying food and activity badge supplies, as well as assigning campsites.  Registering  as a den or pack will help ensure all scouts and their respective families from the same unit will be put in the same campsite.
