The 4 days and 3 nights spent at WOW will be the best four days of Scouting you could imagine and it will give you a peek at what it’s like at Boy Scout summer camp. The activities are planned specifically for Webelos and will greatly aid the Webelos Leader in helping energetic Scouts try new skills in the out-of-doors. WOW gives Scouts the chance to earn activity pins and have a great time doing it. It’s also camping out, in a safe and pleasurable environment to ensure that our Webelos have a fine camping experience. In the great outdoors, Webelos and leaders will gain experience, knowledge, and self-reliance with the help of a trained camp program staff.
