Greetings all Pomperaug District Webelos and Parents! The 2021 WOW will be at Camp Sequassen in New Hartford, CT Saturday October 16th starting at 8 AM. This event is designed to offer the opportunity for Webelos to complete several adventure loops over the course of the event including Castaway, Cast Iron Chef, Webelos Walkabout, Into the Woods, and First Responder.

The event will begin Saturday morning and scouts will rotate through stations as they work to complete the five adventures over the course of the day on Saturday.  On Saturday Evening Webelos will participate in a closing campfire program with the Scouts BSA participants of the Pomperaug Fall Camporee.  Scouts and their families will have the option to spend the night at camp on Saturday night. More detailed information about the event can be found in this year’s Leader and Parent Guide.

Due to restrictions related to COVID-19, there will be additional restrictions and guidelines for this event.  These rules are subject to change as the COVID situation changes.

  1. Social distancing must be maintained whenever possible.
  2. All attendees will be required to wear a face mask during program events when social distancing is not possible.
  3. All attendees must register at least 1 week in advance of the event.  No walk-ins will be allowed.
  4. A BSA medical form, Parts A and B,, must be completed and signed no more the 14 days before the event.
  5. ANY ILLNESS during the event MUST be immediately reported to the event staff. The event first aid staff will decide the appropriate response to the illness.
  6. Before arriving all attendees should ensure that the Restart Scouting Protocols are followed,
  7. All scouts must be accompanied by an adult partner

All meals and snacks are the responsibility of the Webelos and their parents.  If you plan on camping out on Saturday night, you will also need to bring your own tent and sleeping gear.  The guide to safe scouting will need to be followed, so adults can only share a tent with a youth that is a member of their family.

Registration begins at 8:30 AM and the program will begin at 9:00 AM on Saturday and will finish after breakfast on Sunday.

The cost of the event is $20 for Scouts and $5 for adults.  All attendees will receive an event patch.
