An AWESOME Begining of the School Year Event for Webelos

Join Tuality District at Camp Meriwether for their annual Webelos Woods.

Webelos Woods
Webelos Woods is a district-sponsored event that is designed to give first and second year Webelos Scouts and their parents a preview of the Boy Scouting experience. Webelos have the opportunity to work on several activity badges while guided by Boy Scouts. Parents have the chance to visit troops, meet the leaders, and compare programs offered by the various troops within the district. There is also the thrill of camping in the outdoors at a Boy Scout camp.

This is an excellent time for each troop to share with Webelos the activities typical for Boy Scouts. Likewise, this is an excellent time for Webelos to visit with a variety of troops from your area, and learn which troop may be the best to join.

Webelos Woods will be held at Camp Meriwether, on October 24-26, 2014.

The 2013 leader guide is currently posted at
