}Plan a two year program that allows even advancement culminating in a
}cross-over to Boy Scouts early enough for the Webes to sign up for summer
}camp and attend the spring camporee in your area.
Check to see what schedule your council has for Webelos crossing
over. Our council is pushing Webelos to 1.5 years by pushing a
Feb./March crosover. Last year was the first year for this, and we
were caught by supprise. We had to rush our troop visits more than we
wanted to. (We visited 4 troops.)
The idea in our council is to give the new boys a chance to become a
patrol (not just assigned to a patrol but part of a patrol) before
Camporee in June.
Also, it's not too early to start having some activites with some of
the troops in the area.
