We would like a representative from every Pack to attend so that we can get input from and information to each Pack. If you are no longer serving as the Point-of-Contact for Day Camp, please let us know and send a representative from your Pack in your place.
Program Area Directors from 2018 are also asked to attend. (If you are not able to serve as a director, please ask around at your Pack to see if anyone can take your place for 2019.) We will be discussing how these positions are staffed and you won't want to miss it!

District Webelos to Scout Crossover Ceremonies

Posted on Jan 10 2019 - 2:35pm


Save the Dates for District Crossover Ceremonies - Mar. 2 & 9, 2019

The Button Gwinnett District will be conducting the ceremonies in a similar fashion again this year.

Ceremony sessions will be scheduled between 9:00am and 4:00pm on both days.  More detailed and specific information will follow as it becomes available.  In the meantime, make sure to add March 2nd and 9th to your scouting calendar for Webelos II Scouts.

Our intended location for these ceremonies on both dates will be Rogers Bridge Park in Duluth. Once that location has been secured, we will communicate that.

Again, for each Webelos II leader, please make sure this event is added to your Den schedule.  It is recommended that each Pack incorporate the new 2018 ceremony for those earning the Arrow of Light and your Blue and Gold Banquets, typically held in February to celebrate Scouting Anniversary Week!  We will begin to collect specific information (number of Crossover Scouts) mid-January. Watch for a follow-up e-mail during that time.


Yours in Scouting,
