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

Let The Adventure Begin

Webelos Extreme Scouting Trek (W.E.S.T.) is a unique summer camp available to Webelos and Arrow of Light Scouts. The W.E.S.T. program operates at Magness Adventure Camp, located at Peaceful Valley Scout Ranch. W.E.S.T. camp staff specialize in patrol method camping, and teach basic Scouting skills, and the fundamentals of Scouts BSA. This enables W.E.S.T. participants to receive an authentic Boy Scouts of America experience. Unlike Magness Adventure Camp, which offers Cub Scout family camping, W.E.S.T. specializes in Scouts BSA-style patrol camping. Upon arriving 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 and evening activities. The W.E.S.T. program is designed to prepare Webelos for the transition from Cub Scouts into Scouts BSA. 

Participants will be served hot food except for one meal that they will cook to meet a requirement for Arrow of Light.

Webelos and Arrow of Light Scouts will be assigned an activity schedule that is based on their rank advancement progress. Activities are designed to cover many adventure requirements, as well as provide a sampling of the fun experience Scouts BSA camping offers. Activities such as field archery, pioneering, and wilderness survival, make the W.E.S.T. program a unique camping experience.
