Webelos Woods

Webelos Woods is a overnight family camping weekend for Webelos and their parents. It’s a great way for the Webelos and Dads to be introduced to the Boy Scout camping experience. It is held each year in the Fall. Troop 412 was one of the host Troops at Webelos Woods Sept 19-21 at Camp Wakonda, Bellevue NE. Webelos from the Soaring Eagle District were able to visit and participate in camping and skill building with 4 other local Boy Scout Troops. About 40 Webelos attended the weekend event. The Scouts in Troop 412 taught the Webelos pioneering and knots. The training sessions lasted one hour. After the hour was completed the Webelos moved onto other training sessions taught by other Boy Scout Troops. The following knots where taught; square knot, two half hitches, and taut line hitch, clove hitch, and timber hitch (needed for the pioneering section). The Webelos where also taught how to whip and fuse the ends of a rope. The Pioneering portion of the session taught the Webelos square, tripod, and round lashings.
