Las Vegas Boy Scout Troop 770 Hosts 1st Annual Webelo Skills Training Day
ALTERNATE LOCATION UPDATE
(11:15pm February 28th)
Due to the very soaked park, we have decided to move Webelo Skills Training Day to the LDS Church located at 7401 Smoke Ranch Road, Las Vegas, NV 89129.
We look forward to seeing you in the morning for registration at 9:15am.
UPDATE: Due to a higher than expected response we SOLD OUT on February 14th. If you are interested in attending a future Webelo Skills training day, please contact Lara Stone at (702) 217-2595 or email lara@NAS-inc.com and she will put you on our priority list for the next event.
Webelo Scouts can choose to complete two Webelo Activity Pin from Outdoorsman, Forester and Readyman. In addition, all Webelo Scout attendees will participate in a series of Boy Scout skills to introduce them to the kinds of activities they will be enjoying when they crossover into a Las Vegas Boy Scout Troop.
One of the unique aspects of this Webelo Skills Training Day is that the Webelo Scouts will be lead by Boy Scouts and not their Den Leaders or parents. This gives the Webelo Scout an opportunity to learn from and look up more experienced Scouts which is also serves as an introduction to the methods of Boy Scouting where the boys lead the Boy Scout program.
Frequently Asked Questions:
- Is there a fee to participate? Yes, there is a $5 registration fee per Webelo participant which includes all activities and lunch for the Webelo Scout and their parent/guardian.
- Is is required that each Webelo Scout have a parent/guardian present throughout the day? Yes and No. Although it is encouraged that parents stick around for the day, it is only required that each Webelo participant is assigned to a responsible adult (i.e a parent or den leader) but there does not need to be a one-to-one ratio.
- Will the Webelos fully complete the activity pins they sign up for at Webelo Skills Training Day? Yes and No. For the Forester and Readyman activity pins, the Webelos will full complete all requirements on that day. For the Outdoorsman activity pin the Webelo will need to complete an overnight campout for which the upcoming Las Vegas Scout Expo will satisfy. Also, all Webelo participants are invited to join Boy Scout Troop 770 at Scout Expo in case their Webelo den is not registered to attend Scout Expo.
- Can a Webelo attend for part of the day? Yes. If a Webelo can only participate in part of the day, please indicate that on the registration form and we will do our best to accommodate their activity pin selections during the part of the day they can attend.
- Can boys attend who are thinking about joining Boy Scout but who are not registered Webelo Scouts? Yes. 5th grade boys who are not registered Webelo Scouts are invited to attend Webelo Skills Training day as a way to experience Boy Scouting before joining a Boy Scout Troop.
