Webelos Cub & Dad Campout

          Beginning in April 1959, Crescent Bay Area Council staged a two-day campout for Webelos Cub Scouts and their fathers. Staff was provided by Commissioners, Camping Committee men and select Explorer Scouts. The event was held at Camp Josepho and featured burro packing, Scout games, swimming and water canoe safety exhibitions and Davy Crockett cookery. The campout ended at 8:30 AM Sunday morning after breakfast in the Josepho Lodge. Attendance was limited to 250 Cubs and 250 dads. The event proved very popular and a second Webelos Cub & Dad campout was held in October 1959. The event continued twice per year through 1972 and into the 1970's in Great Western Council.
          Cubs and dads earned a special patch  which was one of the few non-rank patches besides the Scout-O-Rama patch available to Cub Scouts in Crescent Bay Area Council.

Webelos Camp

          In October of 1967, the name of the semi-annual event was changed to Webelos Camp. The two-day weekend now included the making of patrol flags and developing a patrol yell, rope making, camp stove building, camp crafts and games. A special outdoor campfire was held on Saturday night followed by an evening  session for fathers after the cubs had gone to sleep.

Cub Scout Day Camp  

          The Cub Scout Day Camp was held the last week of June, and was developed in addition to the Webelos father-son campouts which continued to be held twice per year. Billed as "experimental", the day camp was a one-week trial program (Monday through Friday)  limited to 120 Cubs. Each day, the Cubs assembled at Scout Headquarters at 9:00 AM where they were bused to Camp Josepho. In camp, the program included swimming instruction, free swims, nature activities, crafts, sports activities, movies, and turtle races. Cubs returned to the the Scout Service Center daily at 4:00 PM.
          The Day Camp proved popular and two sessions were scheduled for 1972 where cubs could attend both sessions.
Cub Scout Day Camp continued into the Great Western Council era.

Used during transition from Great Western to Western Los Angeles County Council. For a couple of years, all Cubs in
Crescent Bay District were invited to the Camp Out accounting for the absence
of the Webelos symbol from the patch.
