Webelos Woods

Tomball TX, 77375

Last year, the Webelos Woods event was canceled. Iron Horse is making this event up as a day event on February 20th.

Webelos Woods is designed to introduce Webelos Scouts to the many outdoor adventures of Scouting. This event includes an introduction to the patrol-method and Scout activities. Webelos dens compete in Webelos Scout skills (first aid, fire building, camping skills, archery, catapult building, games, knots) and during the afternoon local troops teach basic Scouting skills. The Webelos dens are judged on den flag and yell, resources, leadership, teamwork, skill demonstration, and Scout spirit.

Awards will be presented at the closing campfire followed by an Order of the Arrow Call-Out Ceremony

Check-in will begin at 9:00 am and the event begins at 10:00 am. 

The latest state, county, and Center for Disease Control and Maintenance (CDC) requirements on the day of the event will be followed. Participants will be notified before the event of the specific requirements. All participants must follow any procedures recommended by the council's Enterprise Risk Management Committee such as completing a pre-event screening form, temperature checks, wearing a mask (unless for medical reasons), limiting group sizes that remain together during the event, frequent hand washing, and/or social distancing. See the council's COVID-19 "At-Risk" Participant Statement. Participants who are sick or displaying any COVID-19 symptoms should not attend.

Registration

Webelos Scout registration is $6.50 for the first Scout and $5 for each additional Scout. Registration is typically completed by the den leader or unit leader and is done online with a credit card or electronic check. Council refund policy.

Order of the Arrow (OA) Call-Out Ceremony

The Order of the Arrow is the national honor society of the Boy Scouts of America. Colonneh Lodge is the Sam Houston Area Council's Order of the Arrow Lodge. The Order of the Arrow (OA) recognizes Scouts and Scouters who best exemplify the Scout Oath and Law in their daily lives. This recognition provides encouragement for others to live these ideals as well. Arrowmen are known for maintaining camping traditions and spirit, promoting year-round and long-term resident camping, developing leaders, and providing cheerful service to others. OA service, activities, adventures, and training for youth and adults are models of quality leadership development and programming that enrich, support, and help to extend Scouting to America's youth. Once each year, a troop, crew, or ship may hold a unit election to elect youth members to become members of the Order of the Arrow. 

Following the campfire, a traditional OA Call-Out ceremony will take place to recognize those youth and adults from troops, crews and ships in the district elected to the OA.

Scouting Safely

Safety is Your Responsibility posterThe BSA's Commitment to Safety is ongoing and we want you to know that the safety of our youth, volunteers, staff, and employees cannot be compromised. The Boy Scouts of America puts the utmost importance on safe and healthy environments for its youth membership. The Sam Houston Area Council takes great strides to ensure the safety of its youth as well as the adult volunteer leadership that interacts with them. 

BSA Guide to Safe Scouting policies must be followed. All participants must follow the Youth Protection Guidelines at all Scouting events. Highlights include:

  • Two-deep leadership on all outings required.  
  • One-on-one contact between adults and youth members is prohibited. 
  • The buddy system should be used at all times. 
  • Discipline must be constructive.

Health and safety must be integrated into everything we do, to the point that no injuries are acceptable beyond those that are readily treatable by Scout-rendered first aid. As an aid in the continuing effort to protect participants in a Scout activity, the BSA National Health and Safety Committee and the Council Services Division of the BSA National Council has developed the "Sweet Sixteen" of BSA safety procedures for physical activity. These 16 points, which embody good judgment and common sense, are applicable to all activities.
