On Saturday, Scouts and Webelos will meet active military personnel and learn about some of the equipment used by military personnel, which will be on display. Webelos will participate in Scout lead activities, and will have the opportunity to meet Scout Troops and Scoutmasters within the Laurel Hills District. The day will end with skits, songs, and a flag retirement ceremony with taps. Meals and snacks are provided.
