Webelos Weekend is an introduction into Boy Scout resident camping. Both weekends are held at Camp Wolfeboro, the Mt. Diablo Silverado Council Boy Scout Camp located in the Sierra Nevada Mountains. It is an opportunity to give your Webelos a chance to see what Boy Scout summer camp is like. The Scouts and their parents (no siblings) show up at 6:00pm Friday night at the top of the hill where they meet the camp truck to load your gear to take down to camp. Estimate a travel time between 3-4 hours from the Bay Area. The road into camp is DEFINITELY A 4X4 ROAD and should not be attempted by family vehicles. IT IS RECOMMENDED THAT YOU JOIN OUR STAFF MEMBERS ON A HIKE THROUGH THE FOREST TO GET TO CAMP. BRING A WATER BOTTLE AND GOOD WALKING SHOES OR BOOTS. Meals will start on Saturday with breakfast and end with breakfast on Sunday. Families are encouraged to eat dinner on the way up to camp Friday night.
Friday night, after the Wolfeboro staff show you to your assigned campsite, the Webelos are invited to come and join the Boy Scout campfire for a night of songs, skits and brotherhood. Saturday will be kicked off with morning flags followed by breakfast. After that the Scouts will have the opportunity to go to all of the camp program areas and participate in activities. Camp Wolfeboro runs on an open schedule, which means that your Scouts are welcome to go to any area during program time and participate. All of the Scouts are welcome to stay in any program area as long as they like; however we do recommended that they try and visit every area so they can get an idea of all Camp Wolfeboro has to offer.
The program areas that will be open are Scout Craft (Scout Skills), the Nature Lodge, Handicraft, Archery, BB Guns, Swimming, Row Boating, Canoeing and let's not forget the evening CAMPFIRES!
Saturday will be wrapped up with a campfire devoted solely to the Webelos. Have your Scouts bring up ideas for skits and songs. We would love to have them perform in our campfire, but remember they must be Scouting appropriate!
After breakfast on Sunday the Webelos will be given an opportunity to pack up their gear and load it on the camp truck. Check out time will be 10:00am Sunday morning followed with a brisk walk through a pine forest.
