Category Archives: Webelos Crossover
About 10 years ago a change was made in our OA Chapter that had our OA Crossover teams going to each Pack and conducting individual crossovers at the Blue & Gold Banquets. For the Arrowmen in our Chapter that meant that we had to visit 10-15 Blue & Gold Banquets and spend lots of time away from our personal lives.
Last year we made the decision to move to a single, district-wide crossover ceremony that would include all of the Packs and Troops in the district. Last weekend our Order of the Arrow Chapter Hosted our first District-wide crossover. We held it at our local Scout camp at the Council Ring and held a short reception after the crossover was complete for the new Boy Scouts and their families.
Overall, I think things went very well. We had 19 Webelos Scouts registered and 15 attended crossing over to 4 different Troops. We had close to 100 people in attendance. The whole thing would not have been possible without the efforts of a lot of people. In particular the Arrowmen of the Kittakima Chapter. Thanks to everyone that played a part in making it a great success. I can’t wait to see this event grow next year!
