Each year, Troop 45 conducts one outing in which 2nd year Webelos are invited to participate. This outing serves as a way for the Webelos to become acquainted with Troop 45 and it allows them to complete one of the requirements for the Arrow of Light Award.  It also serves as a fun-filled, low-key overnight for the scouts. There will be an orienteering exercise on Sunday morning for scouts who need to complete the orienteering requirement for First Class.
