Where has the summer gone? With school starting soon, it’s time to get your Webelos program fired up so you can have the Webelos ready for graduation in spring. We invite your Webelos scouts to join us.

With that fall camping trip in mind, the Sapona District Cub Scout Committee has planned a very exciting Webelos camporee at St. John’s Lutheran Church Retreat property on September 15-16, 2018. The Webelos dens will learn Survival skills while working on the Castaway adventure badge and engage in fun games. Of course there will be the traditional Saturday night campfire program and a short Sunday Morning Worship Service. All Webelos in attendance will receive a beautiful camporee patch and should be able to complete Castaway and Camper adventure badges. Some Webelos dens plan to go as named dens just like Boy Scout patrols do.

Since many Webelos leaders are new to camping and Boy Scout methods, the committee has put together this leader’s guide booklet that includes descriptions of the events, a set of guidelines, and a campsite checklist. The guide may be downloaded at the bottom of this page. There is a camporee fee of only $5.00/scout for this event and of course some costs for the supplies your den uses while they are there.
