Webelosfest is an outstanding experience for area Webelos, delivered by the Scouts of Troop and Crew 179, a widely known and successful youth-led Scouts BSA Troop and Venture Crew. Webelos are exposed to Scouts and Venturers aged 11 to 21 presenting and leading small group activities that reinforce many of Scouting core skills and values. Webelosfest is designed to be a fun and exciting event that we hope will inspire the Webelos to continue in a Scouts BSA troop in their community.

Webelosfest program for 2020 is different than any other Webelosfest in the past. Due to restrictions the pandemic have created, Webelosfest will be held over three weekends in the fall. Choose the weekend that works best for your Den. 

On all three weekends the Webelos will make up a Webelosfest Patrol. They will decide on a name, make a flag, and make neckerchiefs for their patrol to wear. They will be assigned a team including a Webelosfest Guide, Instructor, and Assistant Scoutmaster. They will make their own patrol site with an outdoor kitchen and will learn to cook and clean their own meals. They will have the opportunity to learn about campfires and start their own. They will work on Scout knots required in several of the Webelos and Arrow of Light Adventures. They will participate in a traditional Scout camp game as well as our full troop campfire program.
