Webelos Woods 2014

The Webelos 1 and Arrow of Light Den’s attended Webelos Woods at Treasure Valley Columbus Day Weekend.  We arrived Saturday morning and left Sunday afternoon.  Both days were filled with lots of fun activities and opportunities to learn more about Scouting.  There were workshops on Hiking, Cooking, Firebuilding and many more!  A big thank you to Boy Scout Troop 306 for hosting us in Camp!!!

For New Scouts, part of the first step to achieving thier Rank patch is to achieve the Bobcat patch.  The attached document outlines the requirements for the Bobcat patch this year.  Your Scout needs to show their Leader they know the following:

 

  • Motto
  • Oath
  • Law
  • Sign
  • Handshake
  • Salute

And So We Continue Venturing into Scouting!

The first Den Meetings of the 2014-2015 Scout year started yesterday.  New and Returning Scouts met each other for the first time and had fun beginning the work towards achieving their Rank patch.  The Arrow of Light Den learned how to put up a tent and create a shelter.
