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.
