The 2020 Webelos Resident Camp is four days and three nights of Scouting fun and adventure! The goal of Resident Camp is to provide Webelos Scouts a taste of the summer camp excitement they will enjoy when they join Scouts, BSA Troops, and to offer the opportunity to complete some, if not all, of the requirements for select Webelos Adventures. Webelos Resident Camp is held at Comer Scout Reservation and is led by trained Webelos leaders and assisted by Camp Comer Scouts, BSA Summer Camp Staff.
Webelos Resident Camp is open to all youth currently registered as Bears (rising Webelos Scouts) or Webelos Scouts (rising Arrow of Light Scouts).
The cost for each Scout to attend is $150.00. The first adult leader is free with a minimum of 4 Webelos Scouts registered on the same registration form. The fee for each additional adult leader is $60.00. Payment of all fees must be submitted along with the Webelos Resident Camp Registration Form. All registration forms, rosters and fees must be submitted to the Council no later than July 3, 2020. Camperships are available for those Scouts in need.
Webelos Scouts attending the Webelos Resident Camp will be exposed to a wide range of activities that meet some requirements for the new Webelos Adventures. Webelos Adventure programs may include Aquanaut, Into-the-Woods or Stronger-Faster-Higher. Arrow of Light Adventure programs may include Aquanaut, Camper, or Scouting Adventure. Advancement opportunities offered at the 2020 Webelos Resident Camp are subject to change, depending on course demand, volunteer staffing, and weather. Arrow of Light Scouts will have a full camping experience during the Outback Adventure. This experience will include the basics of canoe safety, Safe Swim Defense, Safety Afloat, Leave No Trace Awareness, setting up camp, cooking and an introduction to Boy Scout skills they will use when they become members of Scouts, BSA. Additional activities offered for all Webelos Scouts include swimming, archery, BB gun shooting, climbing, nature hikes, and adventure games.
