Webelos Extravaganza is a weekend campout designed to introduce 4th and 5th grade Webelos Scouts to the many outdoor adventures of Boy Scouting. This year's event will focus on cooking skills with the theme "A Scout is Hungry." **Our unit has decided to go just for the day on Saturday from 8:00 - 3:30.  Cost is $10 per Webelos Scout and you must be registered to attend the event, so please make sure you communicate with your leader.


This Webelos Extravaganza will teach cooking skills that require a minimum amount of utensils and clean up. There will be four cooking stations with two events at each. The events will not necessarily be in the order shown. There will be some opportunity for a hands-on experience for the Webelos and most stations will offer snacks of the food cooked. The Webelos Scouts will be split into four groups, one group per station. One hour will be spent at each station, then the groups will rotate to the next station.

  • Event 1 – Twisty Bread on a Stick
  • Event 2 – Omelet in a Bag
  • Event 3 – Utensil-less Cooking three ways
  • Event 4 – Silver Turtles
  • Event 5 – Dutch Oven Cobblers
  • Event 6 – Egg in a Paper Cup
  • Event 7 – Fire Building
