November WEBELOS Invitational Iron Chef Campout – 11/10-11/12

We are inviting Webelos and friends interested in scouts to join us on Saturday to learn more about the Troop. We also would love for families to join us Saturday night for the great Thanksgiving Feast and the grand Dutch Oven dessert buffet.
January The MaKaJaWan Snowmageddon Campout – 1/13-1/15 (Saturday to Monday)
MaKaJaWan is an awesome place in summer, but it’s also a winter wonderland in January. We head up Saturday on Martin Luther King weekend and return on Monday. Will be cabin camping with a great mix of outdoor and indoor activities. Don’t forget to pack cocoa.

March Roller Rink Lock-in and Camping 101 Campout – 3/16-3/18
What a way to welcome crossing over Webelos into the Troop. Friday night we will be spending the night in a roller rink and then camp out on the rink floor. The lights and roof will be a blessing as the new member set-up a Troop tent for the first time while older scouts can take advantage of spending the night in a roller rink. Saturday, we break camp and then test those new skills setting up outside at a nearby campsite.
