See the 2018 Resident Camp Registration Process
See campsite availability below!
Note that due to a change in National policy, any adult staying more than 72-hours (non-consecutive) at camp must be both registered as an Adult Leader in Scouting, AND have completed Youth Protection Training prior to arriving at camp. Webelos Exploration Camp is longer than 72-hours in total.
Safety of our campers is of paramount importance.
Webelos Exploration Camp is the premier summer camp destination for Webelos and Arrow of Light Scouts. Learn important Scouting Skills, with a S.T.E.M. (Science, Technology, Engineering, & Mathematics) twist! Campers will learn what it will take to be a great Boy Scout. They'll test their bodies & minds in areas like Backcountry Science, Strength & Speed Building, Building & Engineering, & Fluid Dynamics.
Each evening Scouts will participate in evening program around camp before heading back to their campsite where everyone stays in two-person wall tents. Tents are provided with cots and mattresses, and are on a platform off the ground. If you would prefer to sleep in your own tent, please do! Just make sure that it is labeled with "No Flames in Tent."
WEBELOS EXPLORATION CAMP PROGRAM HIGHLIGHTS
WHAT MAKES WEBELOS EXPLORATION CAMP DIFFERENT?
Lake Erie Council is doing something unique that you won't find at any other Webelos camp. We provide more than just a Cub Scout Resident experience with a bow on top. A Scout's years of being a Webelos or Arrow of Light Scout are some of the most crucial in their Scouting career. At Firelands, they get something special — a taste of what they’ll experience as a Boy Scout.
The difference starts with the camp property itself. Webelos have the entire Camp Wyandot to themselves. Camp Wyandot used to host Boy Scout Resident Camp, so it is a full-featured camp that is bigger, better, and has all the program areas that Cubs lust after. Areas like our climbing and rappelling tower, full archery and air rifle ranges, campfire amphitheater and large lake are huge hits. Plus they get an extra day — five days at camp!
Rather than traveling around as a Pack or Den all day, Webelos get to choose their morning program as an individual. They dive deep into one of the program areas each morning that they’re most interested in like Aquatics, STEM, Shooting Sports, Outdoor Skills, and more. This gives them some autonomy, and shows trust that they can take care of themselves as their growing up.
In the afternoon, they go through our Scout Skills Triads as a Pack before free time. These are focused lessons and activities about what Boy Scouts need to know right away. We introduce these programs so that each Scout feels comfortable about the transition, and have a leg up on skills like first aid, citizenship, and leadership.
Finally, some activities aren’t appropriate for Cub Scouts, but Webelos are finally able to do! They can rappel off the climbing tower, shoot air rifles rather than BB guns, and jump on the giant Blob launcher in aquatics! Webelos truly get more out of Exploration Camp!
Each Den is encouraged to register one Boy Scout Den Chief for FREE to assist with the Den. Certain programs will be available for Den Chief each week.
