Crossover weekend is when your Cub Scout officially becomes part of the
Boy Scouts and the troop. It's a fun and exciting experience for you
and your scout!
The weekend has two parts - the Crossover Ceremony at Burnside Bridge in
Antietam Battleground and then the 1-night campout at Camp Melrose
, the troop's scouthouse located just
outside Sharpsburg. Both parts are very important. The ceremony
officially makes your scout a member of the troop. The campout lets
your scout get to know his fellow troop members and also gives him the
opportunity to earn his Scout rank.
