SWC Beads

SWC Beads

Beads are one of the many traditions that have grown at SWC. Colored beads are awarded for achievements, participation in SWC events, games, and roles. Each bead color represents a specific achievement. Beads are placed on the iconic SWC Claw Necklace and worn at any scouting event.

SWC Theme

SWC Theme

Every year, the Scoutmaster selects a theme for the campout. The staff designs games on theme, and the patrols design their name, costumes, patrol flag, and totem around the theme as well. The Scoutmaster announces the theme early in the year to give the patrols enough time to get creative and have fun!

The Games

The Games

Every year, our Games staff designs five new games for SWC. The games are designed to reinforce scouting skills, challenge Scouters, involve the whole patrol, and be fun.
