The Copperhead District World of Webelos is for both 4th and 5th grade Webelos Scouts. This year's event will be held at Bovay Scout Ranch in the camporee site. The event is designed to give Webelos Scouts a first-hand look of what they will experience once they join Boy Scouts. It also gives them the opportunity to earn activity pins and to interact with older Scouts who teach the courses.

Activities typically include archery, BB gun shooting, orienteering, fire building and more!

Program

The program activities will be under adult leadership with assistance from Boy Scouts. The program gives the boys a sneak preview of what to expect in Boy Scouts while allowing the fourth graders to stay focused on their Webelos activities. Webelos will earn activity pins,and learn Boy Scout skills and teamwork. There will be an opening ceremony at the Saturday morning flag raising, closing campfire on Saturday night and a non-denominational worship service on Sunday morning. A boy can earn the pins by just attending during the day, but will get the full program by camping out.  Fees will be the same for Scouts attending on Saturday only and Scouts attending the full weekend, as all receive the same materials.  There is a special program to keep all adults busy and entertained. 

Scouts will have an opportunity to participate in four activities of their choice and archery and BB guns.  The entire den/patrol does not have to attend the same activities, but if they choose to do the same activities, we will do our best to keep them together.  We encourage the fifth grade Webelos to take the Boy Scout skill courses, especially if they have already completed many of their activity badges. There will also be activities such as a den flag competition, den cheer competition, and campsite inspection.
