We routinely charge an extra $10 per year for Webelos to cover not only the
extra costs of the activity pins but to defray the expenses of the camping
program. We have no close by Council property to use for camping so rely
on the county and state park campgroups for Webelos Den overnight or
weekend campouts, usually two per year in early fall and late spring.
