This weekend of fun and adventure is open to all WEBELOS SCOUTS, their parent(s)/guardian(s), and WEBELOS Den Leaders / Den Chiefs. New Scouts (4th and 5th graders) are encouraged to attend.

The weekend will include CAMPING - bring a tent, and COOKING - bring food to cook; plus Saturday night CAMP FIRE with skits and songs, and Sunday morning SCOUT'S OWN SERVICE.
The National Eagle Scout Association wants to make college more affordable for more than 100 worthy Eagle Scouts across the country.
The window for 2017 Eagle Scout scholarships opened Aug. 1, 2016, and will close on Oct. 31, 2016.
In the 2015-2016 window, the National Eagle Scout Association (NESA) awarded $640,000 in scholarships to 140 Eagle Scouts.
For the 2016-2017 window, NESA's goal is to increase the number of recipients to 150. That includes scholarships ranging from $1,000 to $50,000.
Despite some online rumors about these scholarships, NESA doesn’t have the funds to offer money to each of the more than 5,000 applicants. Less than 3 percent of those who apply will receive scholarships.
In the past, NESA scholarships were available only to Scouts attending four-year universities. Now Scouts attending vocational trade schools and other approved programs may apply.
Keep reading for the more information about the the 2017 NESA scholarships.
