Wente Scout Reservation

The Handicraft porch.


The Handicraft Area is the Center for the Arts and crafts. Here a Scout can fulfill the classic notion of bringing home something crafty he has made himself. It is also where creativity and a willingness to give something new a try can lead to developing a passion for creating.

Refer to the current Leader’s Guides for times on all handicraft activities.
