Webelos Day 2020
For nearly two decades, the Webelos Transition Day has been an annual tradition for Scouts BSA Troop 800 and the surrounding community. In light of the closing of our former camp in Powhatan, VA, theSharon Parsons Foundation in Cumberland, VA, has generously offered Camp Parsons, their new 22-acre multi-purpose youth camp to host this event.
Each year, in conjunction with the Heart of Virginia Council and Huguenot Trail District, Scouts BSA Troop 800 will be inviting the rising Webelos and Arrow of Light Scouts from the surrounding areas to Camp Parsons in Cumberland, VA, to experience what it is like for these boys and girls to be a Scout for a day. The main purpose of this event is to keep these Scouts interested and get them excited about the transition to becoming a Scout. Once again, this event is open to boys AND girls who are Webelos or Arrow of Light Scouts and their siblings.
As always, this is a FREE event for all attendees. Lunch will be provided to REGISTERED attendees.
Remember — ALL attendees must register individually.
During this event, Webelos and AOL Scouts will get to participate or view demonstrations at various stations including:
- Archery Range
- BB Gun Range
- Camp Cooking
- Fire Building
- Knife Safety
- Shotgun Range*
- Tomahawk Range*
- Woodworking Shop
- Other events to be determined
Due to Scouts BSA safety regulations, Shotgun Range and Tomahawk Range are demonstrations only for Webelos and AOL Scouts. However, adults accompanying scouts are welcome to participate in these events when available.
If you are a member of another Scouts BSA Troop and would like to participate in this event, help man the activity stations and present information about your Troop, please register below and contact Scoutmaster Rodney Parsons at 804-514-8880 as soon as possible to confirm your participation. This is an event to keep boys and girls in the Scouting program no matter what Troop they decide to join.
Due to insurance requirements, ALL attendees including adults MUST register individually. NO EXCEPTIONS!
Detailed directions will be emailed to you upon registration!
