Troops with several patrols who are cooking a dish will need to select one dish is to be presented. Points will be awarded on appearance, taste, complexity, and incorporation of the theme.

Interfaith Service

The Scout Law teaches, “A Scout is reverent. A Scout is reverent toward God. They are faithful in their religious duties. They respect the beliefs of others.” It is important that Scouts be taught to recognize the beliefs of other Scouts and to respect those beliefs. Troops will conduct their own interfaith service in their campsite. Webelos Woods staff will hold an interfaith service for all 4th-grade Webelos Scouts and their parents on Sunday morning.


Park in designated parking areas only. Cars will not be permitted to be parked at troop campsites. Unit trailers may be left in their campsite as long as wheels are blocked and the trailer is secured when unattended. Please inform all drivers to obey posted camp speed limits and use extra caution while operating their vehicles on camp roads and parking areas. Please encourage all attendees to carpool as much as possible.


Each troop will be assigned a campsite adequate for the number of Scouts indicated on the troop registration form. A large number of last-minute additions may result in overcrowding of campsites, so please have an accurate count for registration. Be reminded to have a first aid kit, trash bags, duty roster, and meal planner visible in the campsite. A site will be assigned to all fourth-grade Webelos Scouts and their parents upon arrival

Cooking and Fires

Each troop will be responsible for its own meals, furnish and cook their own food, as well as provide all equipment for preparation, serving, and cleaning up meals. A fire station/fire guard posting must be in place before any cooking or campfires may occur. No liquid fuels are allowed per SHAC policy, and you may not build an open fire on the ground anywhere.  Existing campfire rings are allowed. Please bring in your own wood/charcoal/ fire pit/sand if you choose to build a fire.  Propane stoves are allowed.  Remember that all materials brought in must be taken out.  Campsite ash must be removed; do not put ash in the trashcans.


Fresh water will be available. All troops should bring their own containers (with lid) to transport water back to their campsites as needed.


All participants are expected to adhere to the seven Leave No Trace practices. All trash must leave with your unit and unburned firewood should be carried out. Remember “Carry in – Carry Out.”

First Aid and Safety

There will be a first aid station staffed Saturday for any participant needing assistance. The first aid station will be centrally located and marked with a red cross sign. Please be sure to advise your patrol members of its location, which will be announced at the Friday leader's meeting.

Check-out and Patches

When you are ready to leave on Sunday morning, send a representative from the unit to headquarters to have a staff member visit your campsite for inspection. If your campsite is ready for your departure, you will be given your patches and health forms.


Scouts who need accommodations are encouraged to participate in all activities. Let the staff know prior to the event about any accommodations needed.

Campsite Inspections 

Campsite inspections will take place for all troops sometime Saturday afternoon.  The troop with the highest point total will be recognized.

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 the 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 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 have 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.
