Webelos Woods Welcome to Cape Fear Council’s Inaugural Webelos Woods. Webelos Woods is the first opportunity for 4th-grade and 5th-grade Webelos Scouts to learn what Boy Scouting is all about. It is a weekend trip that exposes the boys to Boy Scout camping using the patrol method, in a Scout-led outdoor adventure, supervised by adult leaders, and with parents nearby. (The patrol method is the way Boy Scouts are organized, which gives them an experience in group living, working, and fun – it places responsibility on young shoulders and teaches boys how to accept it). This weekend event gives the Webelos a taste of a little more independence and self-reliance than in Cub Scouts. This program will help the Webelos to get their Arrow of Light and will also help them to cross-over to Boy Scouts.

Within this guide you will find all of the information you will need to plan your Pack’s or Troop’s weekend. CHECK IN TIME: The check in time is 5:00 p.m., Friday, November 18th, for the Webelos and parents. Try to arrive prior to that so registration and camp setup can be completed in a timely manner. WHERE: Webelos Woods will be held at Camp Bowers Boy Scout Camp in White Oak, NC. You should be homeward bound by 9:30 a.m., Sunday, November 20th. WHAT TO DO WHEN YOU ARRIVE: This guidebook contains a map of the Webelos Woods encampment. As you check in at the Camp Administration Building you will receive information regarding which Provisional Troop your Pack is assigned to (just in case you were not notified). You will also find a map, which shows where your Provisional Troops will be located (campsite). Review the map and familiarize yourself with the camp layout and locate your Troop campsite, the First Aid Station (Handicraft Shelter), and the Food Distribution point (Dining Hall).
