Webelos

Webelos Handbook

The Webelos den is divided into Webelos I and Webelos II/Arrow of Light. Boys who are in fourth grade or 10 years old are placed into the Webelos I den. Boys who are in fifth grade or 11 years old are placed into the Webelos II/Arrow of Light den.

The Webelos program is a transitional program that shifts the emphasis from the home-centered activities of Tiger, Wolf and Bear Cub Scouts to group-centered activities. The Webelos program prepares your son for his later participation in Boy Scouting.

Webelos Scouts don't do achievements and electives as younger boys in Cub Scouting do. As a Webelos Scout, your son's progress will take place through activities centered around his advancement. He'll advance by earning activity badges and other awards.

As a Webelos Scout, your son will work towards the Webelos badge and Cub Scouting's highest award - the Arrow of Light.

Each scout should have a Webelos Handbook which may be purchased locally at the Boy Scouts of America Scout Shop, 1601 South Main Street, Akron - 330-773-4078 or online at scoutstuff.org.
