Back In The Future In 1985
To fully understand Scouting, we must look to our past and Scouting’s roots which were introduced by Baden-Powell. The aim of Webelos Boot Camp is to introduce the Scouting skills that are more than 100 years old. Scouting began with 20 boys and an experimental camp in 1907. It was held during the first nine days of August in 1907 at Brown Sea Island, near Poole in Dorset, England. The camp was a great success and proved to its organizer, Robert Baden Powell that his training and methods appealed to young people and really worked. In January 1908, Baden-Powell published the first edition of "Scouting for Boys" which was an immediate success. Scouting skills are just as relevant now as they were in the days of BadenPowell. Skills include orienteering, first aid, scout knowledge, fire building, knots/lashings, and team building. Scouts learn through the patrol method and work as a group to achieve success. Annual Scout camps expose our youth to a week long journey that builds upon the skills that will be learned at Webelos Boot Camp.
