Explore the outdoors, join in the Adventure
The Winnebago Council is excited to continue to share the action-packed programming of the Boy Scouts of America throughout our 17 Counties in Northeast Iowa. Are you involved? If not, let’s sign up and Explore the Outdoors together.
The week of Sept. 8-14 the Winnebago Council units will be hosting Scout Me In Recruitment Nights. Please contact the Winnebago Council office at 319-234-2867 to find your nearest Scout Me In Night to join in on the fun. After you are signed up and are ready to start Exploring the Outdoors join us at Ingawanis Adventure Base in Waverly, for an afternoon of fun Sept. 28 from 12:30-4 p.m.
We have Family Scouting for your sons and daughters in Kindergarten through fifth grade. What does that mean for you? You can do all of this together as a family. Yep, that’s right—have fun and make memories all while learning important skills like leadership, citizenship, character development, fitness and more that are camouflaged in fun for the kids.
How do I join in?
Attend your Scout Me In event to learn more and get signed up. At that event, the youth will receive a map and their very own compass to start Exploring the Great Outdoors and Scouting. Next:
• Your map and compass take you and your son and/or daughter to the Scout Shop to get your uniform and handbook (You will receive your first Scouting bead to add to your compass at that location.)
• Next on your map, you will attend your first Scouting meeting with your Pack and receive your SECOND Scouting bead.
• Last, head on over to the Explore the Outdoors event at Ingawanis Adventure Base on Sept. 28 from 12:30-4 p.m. to explore the outdoors at camp (archery, BB guns, hiking and so much more) before you leave you will receive your first Scouting Patch.
We are ready for a great time and are looking forward exploring Scouting with you.
Please contact the Winnebago Council office at 319-234-2867 to find your nearest Scout Me Night recruitment event to join in on the Fun.
