Leading Youth to Lifelong Values

Organized camping is a creative, educational experience in cooperative group living in the outdoors. It uses the natural surroundings to contribute significantly to physical, mental, spiritual, and social growth.

  • Camping contributes to good health.

  • Camping helps campers develop self-reliance and resourcefulness.

  • Camping enhances spiritual growth.

  • Camping contributes to social development.

  • Camping is an experience in citizenship training.

  • Camping at the Cub Scout level introduces boys and girls to the knowledge and skills that they will learn and apply more thoroughly in Scouts BSA.

Camping Checklist

Where We Go

We camp two to three times a year. The Webelos dens may camp more as part of their efforts to visit Scouts BSA troops. We typically camp at facilities that are owned and operated by the Boy Scouts of America.  These include:

  • Worth Ranch

  • Sid Richardson Scout Ranch

  • Camp Tahuaya (Waco)

Other Useful Information

What NOT to bring
  • Alcohol, tobacco, firearms, fireworks, pets, radios, electronic toys (iPads, iPods, Nintendo DS, etc.)

 

Transportation
  • Up to each family.   

  • Carpool if you can.

  • Good maps and directions are forthcoming.

  • Signs with arrows will be posted once you reach the ranch road.
