One of Scouting’s greatest challenges is to make the next level of Scouting readily available for a young man once he meets the joining requirements from Webelos to Boy Scouts. This is a time of great excitement and enthusiasm, but also one of change and uncertainty. Troop 111 typically support Webelos crossover events to welcome and build enthusiasm among boys and their parents for the exciting challenges that await them in Boy Scouting.

We will need parents and Scouts to help with this event. Event details are still TBD but post this on your calendar for now.
