Webelos Resident Camp 2014 – The Wild, Wild, West!!!

August 3-6, 2014

Buffalo Trail Scout Reservation

Being a Webelos Scout is an exciting experience. Summer camp provides boys the opportunity to experience a full
week of camping, with games, excitement, and new friends. The mission of Webelos Resident Camp at Buffalo Trail
Scout Ranch is to provide Scouts with the opportunity to learn and practice new skills, make new friends, gain
confidence in the outdoors and better prepare boys to earn their Arrow of Light and continue on the Trail to Eagle
into Boy Scouts.

Our staff is excited to have your Scouts visit BTSR and have worked hard to prepare for their arrival. Our dedicated
staff looks forward each year to the excitement and fun of Webelos Resident Camp! It is truly their favorite part of
the summer and we know you and your boys will feel the same way about this unique experience.

As part of our preparation, our staff has designed the summer camping experience with the following goals in mind:

  1. Become familiar with and comfortable in the natural surrounding the Ranch.
  2. To learn and use new and refresh current Scouting skills.
  3. Participate in long term camping.
  4. Participate in a camp-wide campfire program.
  5. Preview some of the Boy Scout activities at the Ranch
  6. Have fun.

In addition to the above, we provide Webelos with the opportunity to earn achievement awards and sports belt loops that
would be difficult to obtained without attending Webelos Resident Camp.

Our camp day begins at 7:00 am. and runs throughout the evening until lights out at 10:00 pm.

We keep the boys very busy throughout the day and well into the evening, with the story and plot continually
developing. Because we have so many planned activities for boys to enjoy, we also have included a planned
“siesta”, which occurs after lunch. Days at camp are filled with fun and activities, so is very important that the boys
get their rest during lights out at 10:00 pm. so that they will be energized and ready to go for the next day’s

We at BTSR like to have the Webelos partake in a full camp experience and our caring and trained staff will help each
boy enjoy their summer camp experience. We also want our dedicated adult leaders and parents to enjoy their week at
BTSR. Leaders are welcome to enjoy our Leader’s Lounge that includes a variety of amenities, including WiFi. Our staff is
here to ensure everyone at BTSR has a fantastic summer!

So welcome, relax, and enjoy your stay at Buffalo Trail Scout Ranch and Webelos Resident Camp.

In Scouting,

Matt Vercher
