Good evening fellow Webelos Woods survivors,
I just wanted to recap the exciting trip we had this past weekend. This should give you some talking points about what your Scouts did if you were unable to attend. Also, many thanks to the parents that did attend and chipped in to make the weekend great.
This was some of the Scouts first taste of the next level of Scouting. While they may have not done all of the set up, cooking, planning etc. they did have a very important role in all of them. They were put in some situations of critical thinking outside of someone being there giving them the answer…how to stay warm at night, how to administer 1st aid with limited resources in the woods, team building and leadership, knife and axe safety, partner carries, fire building, and probably the parents/leaders favorite… nap, I mean map and compass.
A lot of this was even Scout led by older kids so it was interesting to watch how they interacted different with those a little closer to their age that may have been giving them similar instructions.
I have attached Saturday’s station layout, by Den, so you can see what each group did, in addition to hiking about 7 miles! 😐 We truly enjoyed the experience and hope your Scout did too. Please talk with them on what may have been their most and least favorite as I’d like to include their input on the Council’s review card.
I’d suggest keeping the Webelos Resident camp on your radar this summer (sometime around July) as it is similar but more geared towards a specific field (to be announced later). We’ll pass along more details as we have them, but it typically runs around $150 which is all inclusive (including meals) and is a Thurs-Sun event.
Thanks again for investing in your kid and giving them this Scouting experience.
