“On the Eagle’s Trail.” November 2-4
Hello Leaders! It is WEBELOS weekend time again and I am soliciting your help! I am looking for boys who will be good patrol leaders and also troops/crews who would be willing to lead the activities the boys will be participating in. One minor change from last year…your troop/crew will not be charged to camp this year. We simply appreciate your help for the weekend!!!
The patrol leaders will be a guide for around 10 boys for the day. I will probably need around 10 total patrol leaders for the weekend. Each patrol will design a flag. They will help encourage their boys through the service project which is to be decided. They will also be responsible for helping their patrol come up with a skit or song to be performed at campfire Saturday night. Also, we will be doing the foil meals Saturday night as a competition instead of as a full group activity. The patrol leaders will serve as support to help the packs involved in their patrols make their foil packs. I am looking for boys who will “sell” boy scouts to the WEBELOS. This is the largest group of WEBELOS II scouts that we have had come through the UC in the last several years. GREAT recruiting opportunity for you!
Here is a list of the activities that I am looking for troops/crews to lead…
1. Readyman (Troop 20 did this last year…we would LOVE for you to take this on again)
2. Fire Safety and Fire Building (under the outdoorsman WEBELOS pin)
3. Craftsman A: Teaching the boys to make a paracord survival bracelet
4. Craftsman B: Teaching the boys to make a duct tape wallet and a neckerchief slide (working on details of this still)
*5. Work on one of the NOVA awards…We will be focusing on parts of the “1-2-3 Go”: I need a group to lead the boys in a discussion on how to calculate their weight on the sun, on the moon, on Jupiter, and on at least one other planet of their choice. Not just telling them the calculation, but really helping them see why their weight will be different.
*6. Work on one of the NOVA awards…We will be focusing on parts of the “1-2-3 Go”:Teach the boys how to calculate the height of a tree using shadows…This one may be a bit tricky as it involves the grade math skills and these are 4th and 5th graders, but it can be done!
*These are explained in the Cub Scout Nova Awards Guidebook. I have a copy and would be more than welcome to bring it by for your group to use in planning purposes.
Please let me know ASAP how you are willing to help as we are 3 WEEKS OUT from the event.
I cannot express enough how much I need, and also, appreciate your help!
Thanks in advance for your help!
