Description: Every year Troop 349 Hosts an open house for local Webelo Dens to come and see how a Boy Scout Troop operates and what they can expect to do when they join 349. The event is broken down into two sections:
A presentation on the value of scouting and how the troop operates for parents and guardians -Why scouting helps with college admissions -What is the definition of boy led -Troop plans for the coming year
A hands on demo for webelos and boys considering joining the troop -Primer on orienteering -Navigate to 4 stations -Observe scouts working in each station and ask questions -Successfully complete the course and receive a 349 badge of merit
The open house takes place in the legion hall for parents and outside in the parking lot (rain or shine) at 4 stations featuring hands on activities and demonstrations in the following scout requirements:
- Fire building
- Camp site cooking
- Camp site set-up
As the boys navigate the stations they are encouraged to take part in some of the activities and then upon successfully completing the course they will receive a special Troop 349 Badge of Merit. While this is taking place parents are encouraged to sit through a short presentation and then ask questions about the troop and it’s operations. The last 20 minutes is a small court of honor followed by the Troops annual holiday party with drinks cookies and informal meet-and-greets.
