Welcome Webelos! 2012

From Mr. Smith on 8/13/2012

Greetings Webelos Scouts! Are your ready to do some Scouting!! T2860 has a super fantastic major fun camp ready for you!!!

WEBELOS UNIVERSITY - On behalf of Senior Patrol Leader (SPL) Daniel Y. you are invited to our Webelos University on November 6th, Woodlake United Methodist Church, 7:00pm in the sanctuary. We’re planning several activity stations custom designed just for you. Will these stations be run by adults you ask? Absolutely not! Our Scouts run our Troop! T2860 Scout leaders are eager to greet you and share a fun night of hands-on skill activities. Our Scout leaders just wrapped up our annual T2860 Leadership College and are rip snorten ready for leadership challenges!

Now, that said, the shooting sports orientation station will be manned by both Scout Leaders and our National Rifle Association Rifle and Shotgun certified range instructor adult leaders. We love our shooting sports, kayaking, canoeing, biking, backpacking, camping, and Mountain Man woodsman skills. Our throwing tomahawk and knife orientation stations are sure to get your Scout’s attention!!

Webelos parents, we have a great “Year of Scouting” presentation for you that should answer most of your questions about Boy Scouting in a very fun and informative way. We promise it won’t be boring!! While your son is enjoying the stations, you’ll be checking out our adult presentation in room 130. Several adult leaders will be on hand to answer any questions you may have.

Recruit Webelos? Absolutely not, not at T2860. Our program strength speaks for itself. Our goal is for your Scout to find a great home Troop that fits his interest in Scouting. We would LOVE for that Troop to be T2860! But it is far more important that your Scout successfully continue into Boy Scouting in a Troop that fits him. Our Webelos University is specifically designed for Webelos to find out about Boy Scouting in general. That said, our Scouts are extremely proud of their Troop and can hardly contain themselves, but you get the idea.

SHOOTING SPORTS CAMP!! You are invited to our Shooting Sports camp, November 16/18, locating is the 4H Activity Center at Holiday Lake near Appomattox VA. Details are attached. As a T2860 guest, you will be a Boy Scout at this camp! BSA guidance for Boy Scouting applies. All Webelos attending are required to have an attending adult. Again, camp details are attached. Did I mention it’s FREE for Webelos guests!!! Sign up Nov 6 or contact me earlier, permission form attached.

BUT WAIT, THERE’S MORE!! – Plan to visit us again on November 20, WUMC 7:00pm, to check out the presentation by Mrs. Colleen Harlow, Wild Animal Rescue and Rehabilitator. Mrs. Harlow will have several display animals to share with us and will offer a fantastic information presentation during her visit. T2860 has practically adopted this program as one of our own. Our Scouts have completed several Eagle projects for Mrs. Harlow and her state licensed rehabilitation program. We always have a small donation offering that you can help with if you’d like. I’ll send a list of items that Mrs. Harlow and her animals could use that you can bring in on Nov 20. Bring them to the meeting and we’ll see that the materials get to Mrs. Harlow.

Contact me anytime. I’m here to help you make a successful transition to Boy Scouting.
