“The more responsibility the Scoutmaster gives his Patrol Leaders, the more they will respond.”
 – Lord Baden-Powell 

What Is WEBELOS WEEKEND? In a word – FUN! This is a camping and learning event for First and Second Year WEBELOS, one (or more) of their parents (sorry younger Scouts or siblings may NOT attend), and for Boy Scouts and Scout Leaders. It is a chance to camp with a Scout Troop, learn Scout Skills, and play a few games. Boy Scouts attending the event teach skills, tell WEBELOS about Scouting, and run the scheduled events. This is a GREAT opportunity for WEBELOS and their parents to see Boy Scout Troops in action and meet Troop Leaders.  

WHEN: Friday Nov 3 - Sunday Nov 5, Check-in will begin at 5:00 PM, Friday afternoon.   

WHERE: Spanish Trail Scout Reservation, DeFuniak Springs, FL 32433.  Located approximately 5 miles west of DeFuniak Springs off Highway 90.  Look for the green “Spanish Trail Scout Reservation” sign.  Turn and follow Boy Scout Road until you reach the wood and stone gateway on the left side of the road that marks the entrance to the camp.  Once you have entered the Scout Reservation follow the paved road until you have passed the earth dam and traveled up the hill.  Henson Hall is the first building on the right.  

WHO:  First and Second Year WEBELOS, one (or more) of their parents    

COST:  $20.00 per person with Saturday Dinner and Sunday Breakfast. $15.00 per person if you are cooking your own meals.


We will be offering several Adventures for your 4th grade Webelos or 5th grade Arrow of Light Scouts. We are also going practice the patrol method by working a “Patrol Ticket”, to help your boys prepare to crossover to Boy Scouts. Awards will be given for the top patrols!
