Here are a few Frequently Asked Questions by parents about Webelos Weekend.
1. How much does it cost?
The price for the weekend is $30 per person to cover supplies (ropes, prizes, etc.) as well as food for the day. That means that the cost for a Webelos and parent is $80. This event is staffed entirely by volunteers so we can keep the cost down.
2. What time should I arrive?
We are asking Webelos to try to arrive around 7AM on Saturday morning. This will give you enough time to get checked in, situated in your campsite, and ready for the activities.
3. What time is checkout?
Checkout time is at 8PM Saturday. There are also prizes for the Camp Wide Games winners. If you wonít be able to stay through the awards ceremony, please let one of the Directors know so they can give your things to you before you leave.
4. What should I bring with me?
You will not be spending the night, so no need to bring a tent. Your Webelos will need their Class A uniforms (Blue or Tan BSA shirt) along with a change of clothes. When the weather is bad, itís always a good idea to bring an extra pair of shoes as well. A good rain coat is always important (remember, the Scout motto is 'Be Prepared').
In addition, your Webelos will need to bring their Ten Essentials to carry around with them. These may be checked at one or more of the skills stations during the camp wide games! You can find the list of Ten Essentials in your Cub Scout or Scouts BSA handbook. A Class 1 personal health history form (Parts A&B) is also required for each person staying in camp. Please ensure you bring a completed BSA Health Form with you.
What should I expect from the weekend?
We have received some comments from parents that they were not sure what to expect from the weekend. Please remember this weekend is designed to help your Webelos learn about the exciting opportunities available to them in Scouts BSA. It will also be a chance for you to network with potential Scouts BSA leaders and troops and find a good fit for your family and schedule. But everything will be focused on the Webelos participating in the weekend, so plan on a good amount of time relaxing and talking with your other parents in your child's patrol.
