Webelos Info (Joining Troop 179)


So the next step is coming out for a visit. You are welcome at any regular meeting to come and see what Scouting is all about. We meet most every Tuesday during the school year, 7:15 to 9:00, at the First Presbyterian Church of Farmington. Check our calendar to see our schedule of meetings. Please send an email to our Membership Chair, John Klehm (jklehm@comcast.net) so that we know your coming. While at our meeting you will see how the troop and crew operate as we prepare for our next adventure.

You can also go camping with us prior to joining to make sure that 179 will be right for you. Just ask John and he will get the details for you to help get you signed up to go.


Webelosfest is an outdoor weekend designed to introduce youth to our programs and many of the skills that are used by our Scouts monthly. Webelosfest is open to all Webelos and 5th graders regardless of whether they have been a Cub Scout. Click HERE for more information.

Open House Meetings are designed for youth and their parents to come to a Troop 179 meeting and learn about the Scouts BSA and Venturing Programs. Youth meet with the Scouts of our troop and crew. They meet with an older Scout and all questions are answered. Parents will meet with Membership Chair John Klehm to discuss the benefits of Scouting and how Troop 179 fulfills the promise of Scouting. There are several nights that we are prepared for youth visiting our meetings: 10/27/20 or 11/24/20, or 12/15/20, or 1/19/21, or 2/23/21.

Join Scouts Night is our meeting open for membership in to Troop & Crew 179. There will be a special Parents Orientation on this night as well as the youth learning how Scouting works and start working on their first rank "Scout". This year's Join Scouts Night is March 2, 2021.

We meet most Tuesday nights from 7:00 to 9:00 pm (meetings start at 7:15). Come visit us at any meeting to learn more about the adventures 179 is going on and how you can be a part of them. Check our calendar for exact meeting dates.
