    Webelos Extreme Scouting Trek

    W.E.S.T. (Webelos Extreme Scouting Trek)
    Peaceful Valley Scout Ranch

    Let The Adventure Begin

    Webelos Extreme Scouting Trek (W.E.S.T.) is a unique summer camp opportunity available to Webelos and Arrow of Light Scouts. The ratio is one adult for every five Scouts.

    The W.E.S.T. program operates at Camp Dietler, located at Peaceful Valley Scout ranch. The W.E.S.T. Camp Staff specializes in patrol method camping, teaching basic Scouting skills, and the fundamentals of Scouts BSA. This means that W.E.S.T. participants will receive an authentic Boy Scout Experience.

    Unlike Magness Adventure Camp, which offers Cub Scout Family Camping, W.E.S.T. specializes in Scouts BSA-style patrol camping. Upon your arrival at camp, all participants—both Webelos and parents—will be separated into patrols. These patrols will be the basis for nearly all activities at camp including flag ceremonies, cooking meals, and evening activities. The W.E.S.T. program is designed to prepare Webelos for the transition from Cub Scouts into Scouts BSA.

    Webelos & Arrow of Light Scouts will be assigned an activity schedule that is based on their rank advancement progress. These activities are designed to both cover many Adventure requirements as well as provide a sampling of the fun experience that await you in Scouts BSA camping. Activities such as field archery, pioneering, wilderness survival, and more make the W.E.S.T. program a unique camping experience. W.E.S.T. uses the requirements from the recently updated Cub Scouting program.

    W.E.S.T. sessions are a half-week in length, and run from either Sunday-Wednesday or Wednesday-Saturday. Check-in begins at 1:00 p.m. on Day 1, and check-out is 10:00 a.m. on Day 4. Please consult the W.E.S.T. Program Guide for more details, or contact us.

    *Events are subject to change.
