A special welcome to Webelos looking for more information about Troop 260. Maybe you’ve heard about the Troop from one of our many Den Chiefs? Or have had a visit from some of our Leaders and Scouts? Or maybe you just found us on the web. However you have landed here, WELCOME!
We run 4 events: Webelos, their parents / guardians and Den Chiefs are encouraged to engage with us all by attending at least one of these.
Please also find much more information on this site about the Troop, and what we do.
