ScoutReach Outdoor Survival Skills (SOS) is a camp for Webelos Scouts who will be entering 4th and 5th grade during the next school year. Webelos Scouts will work on Arrow of Light rank requirements and learn skills that will be needed to earn the Tenderfoot rank when they join a troop. SOS is to help youth and their families prepare for the transition from the ScoutReach program into traditional troops near their homes in order to continue the Scouting adventure. Scouts will also enjoy archery, rifle shooting and swimming.
The registration fee is $10 for Webelos Scouts and adults. The registration fee includes meals, a t-shirt, patch, water bottle and program supplies.
