I have put a few together. I prefer the term Webelos Camporee myself,
but it is common to call it Webelos Woods.
Since I am a Cubmaster and an Asst Scoutmaster, I just took
activities that we would do at a Boy Scout Camporee and use them at
the Webelos Woods. I felt it was appropriate since that is what we
are getting them ready to do. My firat time I did it I had a bb gun
range, knot tying, blind man tent set up, river crossing game, flag
signalling using one flag. (I wanted simaphore, but it worked out
okay.) and simple knife safety. The best part was to do this I got
ahold of the Boy Scout Scoutmasters and they were more than happy to
help out. I had a different troop doing each activity so to speak.
Worked great and the boys had a good time.
I did want to do an orientering excersise instead of the tent and
river crossing, but the person to that canceled at the last minute
and I had to through something together in a hurry!
I hope that helps you!
