Trail to Troops – September 27-29, 2024

(formerly Webelos Woods)

An all-new event is coming to AOLs and Webelos Scouts. Trail to Troops is a retention-focused event designed to show older Cubs what Scouting BSA is all about. Sort of like Cub-O-Ree but just 4th and 5th graders.
The inaugural theme is BIG TOP.

This is a FREE event for Troop 1000 Volunteers. All meals will be provided by the dining hall. You will (most likely) camp in the Staff areas of Camp James Ray. Instead of the entire troop working the event like WW, we need a team of 6 Scouts and 3 Adults to volunteer to run some of the activities. Activities include:
Target and Range Activities
Den Chief/Patrol Leader
Logistics Staff
Midway Staff
Pancake Toss/First Aid
Obstacle Course
Fire Building

  • Volunteers will be mixed into 2 youth/1 adult groups and assigned stations
    • No one troop will run a single station
    • Allows all troops represented to have equal opportunities
  • A movie night/video game tournament will be available on Saturday night in the dining hall for volunteers as a thank you after camp closing/Midway.
  • Volunteers are NOT required to camp.
  • Volunteers are required to be in camp on Saturday from 7:00 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. to assist with setup, event, and clean up.
    • Please indicate during registration if the volunteer is camping or coming for the day only.
  • There will be a Midway of games and ice cream social interaction with the Cubs and parents after dinner in the pavilion.
  • Troop 1000 will offer 10 service hours for all volunteers. No, service hours do not carry over into your next rank but the more service hours, the better.
  • OA service hours allowed. See Nick Clark to get hours signed off.
  • Volunteer Hosted Activity:
    • Please indicate your top 3 choices for your volunteer assignment to Mr. Chris Sherrod by Monday, July 22. Event staff will assign volunteers on a first come, first serve basis ensuring at least 2 members of each troop and 1 adult leader are placed together. How to run the activity and where to get supplies will be discussed at the SPL/Staff meeting Friday night.
      • Activity-specific Zoom meetings will be held starting in August
      Activity supplies will be provided by the district. All activities should be completely set up and ready for visitors no later than 9:00 a.m. on Saturday.
    • Scoring method for each activity will be discussed in the activity meetings.
  • Camping:
    • Troop volunteers can camp Friday and Saturday.
    • All volunteers will be consolidated into 1-2 campsites.
