Camping is the great outdoor adventure of Scouting. As a Webelos Scout becomes at home in the outdoors, they learn some of the skills, resourcefulness, and self-reliance of the pioneer. The aims and methods of Scouting are all pertinent in the outdoor camping experience.
Resident camping is perhaps the best opportunity for Scouts to fully immerse themselves in the outdoor experience. The resident camp schedule includes time for a Scout to achieve personal advancement, bond with his pack and fellow Webelos Scouts, and participate in activities of a personal interest.
All packs should attend a resident camp program. Resident Camp is vital for advancement progress, team building, and leadership development for Scouts. There’s something for all ages of Scouts. The Scouts will be working on Adventure requirements. The Arrow of Light Scouts can get involved with all the fun things that Boy Scouts do, and get excited about crossing over.
As your pack begins making plans for the coming year, remember to include resident camp. If
securing adequate adult leadership for a week of resident camp is a challenge, let us know. We can partner your pack with another that has ample adult leadership. If you have Webelos Scouts who are not able to attend Resident Camp with your pack for whatever reason, let us know. At Scott Scout Ranch, we offer Provisional Camping, which forms patrols of individual Webelos Scouts who wouldn’t otherwise have been able to attend camp. Provisional campers are supervised by adult volunteers.
The bottom line is, as a pack leader, make the commitment to provide the opportunity for ALL of your Webelos Scouts to attend Resident Camp. The Three Rivers Council is committed to helping you provide these opportunities. If you have obstacles, please contact us at (409) 842-5240, and we will do our best to find a way to help you.
