Webelos Camp is an exciting adventure for your Webelos Scout. It provides a fun filled environment, with just the right mixture of challenge. Boys graduating third or fourth grade in your Bear/Webelos Dens are rapidly expanding their horizons. Webelos Camp gives them a peek at what is just over the hill. The activities are planned specifically for Webelos and will greatly aid the Webelos Leader in helping those energetic Scouts try new skills in the out-of-doors.
Webelos Camp is an adventure...with a purpose. It's camping out, in a safe and pleasurable environment to ensure that our Webelos have a fine camping experience. It's learning how to work together and play together. In the great outdoors, Webelos gain in experience, knowledge, and self-reliance with the help of their Webelos Leader and a trained camp program staff.
The 2017 Dates:
Session 1: July 9-12
Session 2: July 12-15
Session 3: July 16-19
What happens at Camp?
Welcome to our Webelos Resident Camping Program. Our team has been working hard to create a fun schedule to get your Webelos excited for Camp this summer. This year we will bring Around the World Adventures to Camp Cornhusker. Come join us on our journey as we prepare your Scouts for their crossing over into Boy Scouts.
The Cornhusker Council is pleased to offer 3 sessions of Webelos Residents Camp in June and July. These take place at our very own Camp Cornhusker in southeastern Nebraska, near the city of Humboldt. Each session is 4 days and 3 nights in the lovely outdoors.
Our Program Director has created a schedule especially for your Scouts, using the Webelos requirements updated in 2015 and the newly released 2016 Cub Scout Shooting Sports Program Requirements. Each session will be available for both First Year and Second Year Webelos, boys who have completed third or fourth grade. We have selected activities for the boys that involve hands on learning.
Camp Cornhusker offers many other amenities as well as our Webelos Program. We have a Frisbee Golf course and a Geo-caching course. Both of which can be used during the free time in the evening. We will also be having open shooting ranges and aquaticsactivities for the First Year and Second Years to enjoy during these times. One can always hike the many trails we have around Camp.
We highly encourage adult participation in all of these activities as well.When you register you will be able to choose between the First Year or Second Year programs for your Scouts.We are looking forward to seeing you and your Webelos Scout at Camp Cornhusker this summer. We can assure you that this will be an opportunity to make life long memories with your Scout.
In accordance with the National policies of the Boy Scouts of America, Cub Scouts can go camping on a limited basis, only when accompanied by Cub Scout Leaders and/or parents. The leadership policy of the BSA states that a minimum of two adult Leaders (one age 21 or older, and the other a minimum of 18) are required for each Pack trip or activity.
For each Camp you will need enough adult Leaders or parents attending to satisfy the following minimum adult to youth ratios.
* Webelos Camp - One Adult for every 5 Scouts, with a minimum of 2 adults for Two-Deep Leadership.
