Webelos Coyote Trail Xtreme (WCTX) is an annual event for 4th and 5th grade Webelos Scouts at Bovay Scout Ranch. During this fast paced fun filled weekend Webelos will work on ropes, flag etiquette, knots, nature, first aid and more while trekking across the ranch to exciting outpost program areas. During WCTX, Webelos will work on more advanced Webelos requirements and will be introduced to the patrol method giving them a unique experience into the importance of teamwork and other skills they will need for their first Boy Scout camp out such as fire lays, basic knots, lashings, and more. WCTX begins on Friday evening and runs through Sunday. Space is limited, so register early.
Webelos Scouts and their parent(s)/guardian(s) can register. The fee for Webelos Coyote Xtreme is $115 per Webelos and includes four meals (breakfast, lunch and dinner on Saturday and breakfast on Sunday), patch, t-shirt, water bottle and Webelos program supplies. The adult fee is $40 per adult and includes four meals. Every adult attending Bovay Scout Ranch must follow camp policies and procedures located in the Leader's Guide and the Guide to Safe Scouting.
