What is Webelos Woods?

At Webelos Woods, Webelos will participate in a day and evening schedule of advancement and fun, much like Scout Camporee.

This year the Northern Ridge District hopes to bring your Webelos another great overnight outdoor adventure. Registered participants will be presented with patches and other useful items from each activity station. This will be a rain or shine event so weather will not be an issue for this event, Please come prepared.
