Every Wednesday night at Camp Wheeler
For boys entering 4th or 5th grade in September
Parents are welcome too!
All Webelos entering the 4th and 5th grade this Fall are invited to participate in the weekly Webelos sleepover. Instead of going home on Wednesday night, the Webelos take a short hike over to Camp Somers and get a taste of the Boy Scout experience doing such things as:
Swimming in the Camp Somers lake
Climbing the Camp Somers iceberg
Eating in the Boy Scout dining hall
Learning basic Scouting skills with the Dan Beard staff
Camping in a tent
We supply the tent, food, and supervision.
All your Webelos has to do is bring some basic camping equipment. See the list below.
Be sure to have their names on everything.
Parents are strongly encouraged to come up and spend the night as well! Scouts and parents need an Annual Health and Medical Form in order to participate.
- Special T-shirt
- Dinner on Wednesday
- Breakfast on Thursday morning, and
- Lunch on Thursday afternoon.
The fee is $30 for Webelos and $5 for parents.
If you would like to register for the sleep over, please download the Webelos Sleepover Registration Form and bring it to orientation or the first day of camp.
To see what the boys will be doing and when, check out a typical Webelos Sleepover Schedule.
This program runs rain or shine. If there are severe thunderstorms in the area, Scouts will be moved indoors to spend the night for their own safety.
- Sleeping bag and pad
- Clothes to sleep in and a change of clothes for the next day
- Toothbrush and toothpaste
- Bathing suit
- Water bottle
Annual Health and Medical Form
- All campers, staff, leaders, parents
volunteers attending camp must completely fill out parts "A" and "B". This form
must be completed annually and forms for those under 18 need to be signed by a
parent/guardian. No doctor visit or signature is necessary. Be sure to keep the
original for your records and make a copy for the camp. No
one can attend camp without this form. The Cub Scouts already turned in this form to attend day camp, but it is also required for any parents attending the sleepover.
- Youth Protection Training is highly recommended for all adults attending the sleepover. If you do not have a current training certificate, you can visit www.myscouting.org to take a free online class. You do not need to be registered with the BSA to take the training.
Be sure to have names on everything
