October 18-20, 2019
Webelos Woods is a campout designed to introduce Webelos Scouts to the many outdoor adventures of Scouting. This awesome weekend event includes patrol-method camping and Scout activities. On Saturday morning, Webelos dens compete in Webelos skills (first aid, fire building, camping skills, games, knots) and during the afternoon local troops teach basic Scouting skills. The dens are judged on den flag and yell, resources, leadership, teamwork, skill demonstration, and Scout spirit.
All troops and Webelos Scout dens must preregister. The cost is $10 per participant and includes the camp fee, patch, program supplies and awards.
T-shirts must be ordered before 10/28/18. There is a late fee of $5 after 10/28/18. Onsite registration is $20 and patches are not guaranteed. Refund Policy.
Registration opens in September.
Saturday activities: There will be camp-wide activities from 10 am to noon. After lunch, there will be a round-robin style event in the troop campsites where Webelos can see the troops in action and have some fun participating in various activities. Webelos dens will then be free to visit all troop campsites to get a feel for how each troop operates. Webelos dens will have ample time to visit the troops.
Campfire program: There will be a campfire program on Saturday evening from 8:00 – 9:00 pm. All Scouts and Scouters should wear field uniforms to this event. If you would like to perform your favorite skit or song, please sign up at the registration tent from 8 am -10 am Saturday morning. An Order of the Arrow (OA) representative may visit your campsite during the day if additional skits and songs are needed.
Training: Webelos parents and leaders are encouraged to attend Webelos to Scout Transition training which will be held Saturday morning from 10 am to 11 am.
Chapel service: An Interfaith worship service will be held Sunday morning.

Check-in and check-out
Troop Check-in: Troops can arrive as early as Friday at 4:00 pm to set. The troop should send a representative to the registration tent between 5 pm and 9 pm Friday night to hand in the final roster, and to pick up t-shirts, schedules, and other information for the weekend. There will be a cracker barrel for Scoutmasters and senior patrol leaders (SPLs) at 9:30 pm Friday night.
Webelos Den Check-in: Participants plan on arriving early on Saturday to set up your tents and check-in. Send a representative to the registration tent between 8 am - 10 am to hand in the final roster, and to pick up t-shirts, schedules, and other information for the weekend.
Check-out time: Sunday from 9:00 am -11:00 am. After your area has been inspected by an Order of the Arrow (OA) representative, you may send someone to the registration tent to pick up your patches. Webelos dens will also receive a participation ribbon for their pack/den flag.
Medical forms: All Scouts and adult leaders must bring a copy of their BSA Medical and Health Record (for all Scouting events; parts A&B) with them. One person in each unit should be responsible for these forms.
Water: Hydrate has become a favorite term during BSA activities. A well-hydrated Scout is a healthy and happy Scout.
First Aid: Minor first aid will be the responsibility of each troop. Emergencies should be reported to the registration pavilion. The staff will contact the ranger or camp director, who have emergency protocols in place.
Fires: Propane, wood or charcoal fires may be used in the campsite, but fires must be confined to above ground fire containers such as barbecue pits. Ground fires are not allowed.
The BSA's Commitment to Safety is ongoing and we want you to know that the safety of our youth, volunteers, staff, and employees cannot be compromised. The Boy Scouts of America puts the utmost importance on the safe and healthy environments for its youth membership. The Sam Houston Area Council takes great strides to ensure the safety of its youth as well as the adult volunteer leadership that interacts with them.
BSA Guide to Safe Scouting policies must be followed. All participants must follow Youth Protection Guidelines at all Scouting events. Highlights include:
- Two-deep leadership on all outings required.
- One-on-one contact between adults and youth members is prohibited.
- The buddy system should be used at all times.
- Discipline must be constructive.
Health and safety must be integrated into everything we do, to the point that no injuries are acceptable beyond those that are readily treatable by Scout-rendered first aid. As an aid in the continuing effort to protect participants in a Scout activity, the BSA National Health and Safety Committee and the Council Services Division of the BSA National Council have developed the "Sweet Sixteen" of BSA safety procedures for physical activity. These 16 points, which embody good judgment and common sense, are applicable to all activities.
