The Tatanka District Webelos Crossover is an opportunity for the 5th grade Webelos Scouts to participate in a meaningful crossover ceremony. Webelos Scouts who have not yet received their Arrow of Light can also participate in an Arrow of Light ceremony.

Units can camp for the weekend. The campout is open to everyone in the unit. Each unit will do a service project on Saturday.  Pack leaders are responsible for meals, Saturday program and leadership.


There is no cost to participate. The unit leader needs to RSVP. The unit leader also needs to contact the troop(s) that the Webelos Scouts are joining so that they can send a representative.
