Pack 60 Webelos Attended Webelos Woods Oct. 22nd and 23rd

Posted: October 25th, 2016 | Author: | Filed under: Uncategorized | No Comments »

Webelos woods is a program to introduce Webelos rank cub scouts to boy scout packs in the area.  They get to meet with each troop and participate in an event put on but that troop.  The parents also get to visit with the troop leaders, learn about their scouting programs and events.  Our boys had a great time attending this year and enjoyed participating in all of the activities.  The evening campfire program was a highlight.  We wrapped up our Saturday night with our host troop, a campfire and s’mores.  This is the best way to meet all the troops in our area and introduce Cub Scouts to the world of Boy Scouting.
