Who Can Attend?
The Wizard Safari is open to Scouts of any age, from Lions through Venturers and Explorers. This event is also open to visitors, so we encourage parents and families to attend, along with the general public.
Non-council units (units from councils other than New Birth of Freedom Council) are also welcome to participate in the Safari.
Please note that only registered paid participants will be able to participate in the Cub Scout, Webelos, Scouts BSA, and High Adventure programs. Participants will be given a bracelet that shows that they have paid for the event. All other visitors are invited to watch and participate in the special events that will be occurring throughout the weekend. Don’t forget to stay for the Saturday night show and fireworks!
Each person with a paid reservation will receive a 2019 Wizard Safari commemorative event patch.
