You will learn skills and training in areas such as: leadership, communications, campsite preparation, bedding types, weather, building campfires, cooking, skits, songs, ceremonies, and much more. Best of all, you will be better prepared, to lead your boys down the trail to becoming Boy Scouts.
Webelos den campouts serve to move the Webelos Scout to the next level of the BSA’s everincreasing challenge in the outdoors. The boy and his parent will be introduced to the basics of Boy Scout camping. A trained Webelos den leader who has completed position-specific training and Outdoor Leader Skills for Webelos Leaders should conduct these events. Webelos dens are encouraged to participate in joint den-troop campouts, particularly in the fifthgrade year.
Designed specifically for Webelos den leaders and their assistants, the Outdoor Leader Skills for Webelos Leaders course teaches outdoor-related skills through demonstration and handson practice. Webelos den leaders should attend this training before conducting Webelos overnight camping with the boys and parents of the den. In addition to covering basic camping skills, this training features planning campouts and finding resources.
