Webelos Camping Weekends
Webelos Camping Weekends are 3 day/2 night camping experiences designed for Webelos and their parent or adult leader*. The program is held at Camp Wheeler in Stanhope, NJ and gives each Webelos Scout an opportunity to start working on adventures or activity badges, to learn more about the world we live in, and to develop a greater appreciation for the outdoors.
We offer two weekend-long session. Register for one or both!
Webelos will have a phenomenal time at the BB gun range, archery range, waterfront (swimming, boating and fishing), handicraft pavilion, ecology area, sports field, hiking, and more. They may also work on Webelos and Arrow of Light adventures (or activity badges) such as:
- Build It
