November 10-12, 2023
Webelos Coyote Trail Xtreme is an annual event for 4th and 5th-grade Webelos Scouts at Bovay Scout Ranch. The event is designed to challenge and entertain Webelos Scouts in a fun and age-appropriate way.

*The final schedule will be provided during the cracker barrel on Friday night. Schedules vary based on camp attendance.
A cracker barrel is an evening snack and time for fellowship with other Scouts or Scouters. The term cracker barrel is most thought to come from the time when people would shop at their local general store and gather around the cracker barrel to sit and visit with others in the community, much like the modern-day water cooler. The food is typically kept simple, such as cheese and crackers, summer sausage, chips and cookies. On campouts, many troops have a Friday night cracker barrel with the leaders and youth leadership to review the weekend schedule.
A cracker barrel will be held on Friday night. Webelos leaders and one Webelos Scout denner are invited to a special cracker barrel where last-minute information and changes will be communicated. Please bring a cup and pen.
During lunch, Webelos Scouts can have items (e.g., hat, belt) branded with the camp brand. Items (e.g., cups) will be available for purchase in the Trading Post that are good for branding. The Webelos Scouts will enjoy this keepsake.
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. The Webelos to Scout Expo staff will hold an interfaith service on Sunday morning.
