The program will consist of one night of camping and a full day of activities on Saturday. Webelos will camp together as patrols with a Boy Scout Patrol and exercise the patrol-method of camping as much as possible.

• Knots (square, taut-line, clove hitch, two half hitches, bowline, sheet bend)
• Scout Skills

The patrols will be judged on Patrol Flag and Yell, Leadership, Teamwork, Skill Demonstration and Scout Spirit. On Saturday afternoon, patrols will participate in fun activities with area Troops & learn more advanced skills taught by local Boy Scouts. Scouts will break camp and depart Sunday morning.

Each Webelos Scouts must bring at least one 1 liter or 2 liter soda-pop bottle.

Registration & payment is due at our next meeting: Wednesday September 15th!

Popcorn FAQ

No Comments »

Here are some common questions about our popcorn sale, and our best answers:

How much do I have to sell?
Answer to youth: fill a sheet! Remember, when you fill a sheet, you get to throw a pie in a leader’s face!
Answer to adults: $240

How do I sell?
You can easily sell $240 in less than 2 hours going door-to-door. You can fill a sheet going door-to-door in about 3 hours. You can also sell to friends and family, or take the order form into work. If your Scout missed our popcorn training, ask Mr. Jim, Mr. Eric, or Mr. Clint for some help! There is a proven script we use that will get you sales!

If you’re interested in selling online, create an account at trails-end.com and follow the directions.

When are orders due?

When do I collect the money?
If you can get it while you sell, go ahead. It’ll make delivery easier. If not, money is due when the order is delivered.

We want a single check from you when you pay for your order, so have your customers make checks out to you directly. Deposit all checks & cash, then when you pay for your entire order, please give us one check.
