Webelos/Associated Adults - you have two ways to register & pay.
Preferred - Online registration & payment
Paper registration & pay at the door on 1/19/2013
Cost is $5 per attendee, which includes the Klondike Derby patch, administrative items and insurance.
Each adult and boy must register to attend any part of the program, including drivers who stay for the program.
Pre-registration is preferred, but registrations are accepted on-site. Webelos check-in will take place at the park entrance station.
Little Bennett Regional Park
23701 Frederick Road
Webelos Scouts and their leaders will find at least three good reasons to attend:
· They can see Boy Scout troops in action, solving problems and displaying Scouting skills.
· It satisfies a requirement for the Arrow of Light to take part in an outdoor Boy Scout activity.
· Most of all, IT'S FUN! Webelos will be able to take part in some of the same team building and problem solving challenges given to the older Scouts.
Check-In: Check-in begins at 12:30 PM at the entrance station to the park. Because parking is limited, carpooling is best. To reduce confusion, check in as one large group rather than individually. Lines are shorter later in the day – consider arriving at 2:30.
Directions: From Interstate 270 follow signs for Little Bennett Regional Park, take Exit 18- Route 121 North east to Clarksburg. At the second traffic light (Stringtown Rd & Route 355), turn left onto 355 and proceed north until you see the main entrance for Little Bennett on the right after the maintenance yard.
Parking: Parking is available across from the main entrance at High Point Farm. Park your vehicle and walk across the street to register at the park entrance. Once you are in the park, follow the Polar Bear signs to find the Webelos activities. Be aware that available parking is very limited - therefore you need to carpool where possible. Parking is free.
Clothing: The Scout Uniform is to be worn at all events. Supplement the Scout uniform with additional layers of clothing. Leaders must review with all participants the importance and principles of winter dressing. No tennis shoes will be permitted. Any attendee not properly prepared for the weather will be unable to participate in the activities. One of the most important requirements is knowing how to keep warm and dry. Each individual must know what to wear for winter weather. Winter weather, with changing conditions, necessitates being prepared for almost any condition. Cold weather camping requires adequate clothing and waterproof boots for protection and yet must be versatile enough to prevent sweating during activities and to retain warmth during idle periods. Wearing damp or wet clothing next to the skin during idle periods is a prime time for the body to become cold and could result later in hypothermia. A winter cap or hat is necessary during the day.
