Programs in Fremont 
The Visitor Center in Fremont offers Webelos programs for up to 15 Webelos. Siblings are welcome. These programs are at scheduled times and are docent-led. These programs are geared toward children around 10 years old.  Badges are not provided. Programs will be listed in the Tideline  Newsletter and in the calendar on the home page.

Other Alternatives 
Because these programs fill up quickly, scouts and other youths are also invited to make reservations for other weekend programs at the Visitor Center in Fremont and the Environmental Education Center in Alviso that may be suitable to their badge/patch needs. Please see the calendar on the home page for programs and dates.
