Lone Star District WOW is all about Scouts working with Webelos to teach Scout skills and the ideals of scouting. This is a great opportunity for Webelos to meet the Troops in the Lone Star District as they start to think about which Scout Troop to join. Troops, this is a great opportunity to show off your Scout skills and earn the admiration and respect of the Webelos. Again, this is an opportunity for Webelos to meet many of the Scouts from the different Troops in the Lone Star District. On Saturday, the Webelos will rotate from station to station throughout the day to learn exciting Scout skills from each Troop. We will start with an opening Ceremony and end with a Campfire Program. If your Webelos would like to participate in a flag ceremony or put on a fun skit during our Campfire program the Webelos and Scouts will have the opportunity to do so.

Who: All 1st and 2nd year Webelos AND adult partner (parent / guardian) OR at least 1 adult leader for every 5 Webelos with 2 deep leadership). Those who have Sunday obligations are encouraged to leave after camp fire on Saturday night.

Scout Troops, please e-mail wow@lonestardistrict.org with the Scout skill you would like to do. Troops can teach skills they think would be appropriate for Webelos scouts such as rope making, lashing competition, tent setup, Cast Iron Chef, rope throw rescue, geocaching, etc... Troops are encouraged to incorporate their activity to a Webelos Requirement like Outdoorsman, Readyman, Stroner Faster Higher, Camper, etc. Be Creative and be responsible with your ideas. We want the Webelos to have FUN; and of course we want everyone to have fun!

Webelos girls, if you would like to come to WOW with a female troop then troop 406-G would like to invite you to camp with them. Just sign up and email scoutmaster@simply-smiles.net and you are in.

Cost: Due to the pandemic food preparations are not allowed at the campsites by units. All meals will be at the dining hall and will be by professional staff in a social distancing setting. Thus the cost of camp is a little higher. Meals will be served Saturday for breakfast, lunch, and dinner and a walking breakfast on Sunday. Eat before you come on Friday.

Fees for Everyone: $25

Register here.

Provisions: Lone Star District will NOT be providing food. This event should be treated as a weekend campout. Packs, Troops, Crews you will provide your own meals, tents, camping gear etc… OA will have a concession stand for purchasing snacks so scouts may want to bring a few dollars. WEBELOS: You will camp with a Scout Troop. Please make every effort to contact the Troop that you wish to camp with and get their approval prior to registering. When you register, please let us know who you will be camping with. IF YOU CANNOT FIND A TROOP TO CAMP WITH, LET US KNOW AS SOON AS POSSIBLE. We will help you find a troop.
