BSA Troop #179

Haddon Twp, Collingswood, and Nearby Communities

Webelos Transition

It is our hope for every Webelos Scout to successfully transition to Boy Scouts.

Troop #179 has a long tradition of great collaboration with local Webelos Dens and Cub Scout Units.  At any given time, 90% of the Troop came from local Cub Scout Packs,  especially Pack #179. As Webelos begin their final year, it is important to expose the Webelos scouts to Boys Scouts across multiple activities.  The Arrow of Light requirements has some of this built in.

We provide the following forms of support:

Den Chiefs
A boy scout is assigned to a den for an entire scouting year. He is a mentor to the scouts and a great help to the adult leaders. We strive to embed a Troop member, especially one that has recently bridged-over, into a Pack at Den Meetings.

Equipment
Troop #179 can assist with camping and other Scout equipment, as availability permits. Contact us well in advance of your event if you are interested in borrowing our equipment for an event.

Program Assistance
Our Scouts and adult leaders can come to your Den Meeting, Pack Meeting, or special event and help with programming. We have, in the past, assisted units with first aid, knot ting, camping skills, science activities, fishing events, pinewood derby, and many others.

Please contact us early to discuss your needs!
