Webelos Adventure: Webelos Walkabout

Webelos Walkabout

Hiking can be great exercise and a fun activity to do with your den or family. It is important to remember that hiking is something you will need to plan for; what you will bring, what you will see, and what to do if there is an emergency. This adventure will give you a chance to plan and be prepared for a hike, go on a hike with your den, and help your community by doing a hiking-related service project.
