Webelos Resident Camp

Webelos Resident Camp is a short-term camping experience designed to introduce Webelos, their leaders, and their parents to a theme-based, summertime camping experience that will help the Webelos be prepared for a smooth transition into Boy Scouting. It’s a memorable 4 days and 3 nights of thrilling and adventurous activities that keep campers excited for months after the closing campfire.

Webelos Resident Camp is held at the Tunnel Mill Reservation (TMR) in Charlestown, Indiana, and a combined WRC/CRC at Pfeffer Scout Reservation (RCM) in Benton, Kentucky. Packs must provide adequate leadership for their Scouts, but every Scout does not need a parent to attend. The ratio of youth to adults must be 4 to 1 or less with a minimum of 2 adults.

At Webelos Resident Camp, Scouts will participate in a variety of activities, including shooting sports, swimming, fishing, Scout skills, and much more. Many of these activities will help Scouts earn various Webelos activity badges and belt loops. Nights will be campfires, fun and games, and the tranquility of TMR. For leaders, it’s a great place to spend quality time with your Scouts without the distractions of everyday life and just get away for a couple of days. Resident Camp is pure fun from the time you get up in the morning until the time you crawl into your sleeping bag weary from the day’s exciting adventure.

If you have attended Webelos Resident Camp before, different programs are in place for 2nd year campers to complement traditional camp activities. If you have previously attended Cub Resident Camp, then Webelos Resident Camp will offer new and exciting programs as you continue on the Scouting trail. Each summer, camp has a new exciting theme.
