Sr. Weblos

The Senior Webelos program is for 5th grade cub scouts. "WEBELOS" stands for "We'll be loyal Scouts" and is designed to bridge the gap between the Cub Scout and Boy Scout programs. Webelos work on their badges and electives, and participate in pack activities with the Bear Cubs, Wolf Cubs and Tiger Cubs, but Webelos may also participate in "den camping", where the Webelos camp out as a Webelos den, which again prepares the boys for the Boy Scout camping program. In addition to the above activities, Webelos are also encouraged to participate in the Cub Scout Academics and Sports Program (which requirements are specific to the Webelos)

The Advancement Trail

Webelos dens are for boys who have completed third grade (or reached age 10). The Webelos den program is different from the Cub Scout den program. Everything in the Webelos Scout program is more challenging than what younger boys in the pack do. Webelos Scouts get to work on the 20 Webelos activity badges:

Webelos Scouts work on requirements during their weekly den meetings. Once a boy learns a skill, he practices it at den meetings and at home on his own. His family helps him at home. Webelos Scouts bring the projects they do at home to the den meetings to show others, and to have the Webelos den leader approve their projects.

When a boy has done the requirements for an activity badge, the Webelos den leader or activity badge counselor, rather than a parent, approves most of the activity badges. It takes three activity badges, including Fitness and Citizen, to earn the Webelos badge.

Besides earning activity badges, Webelos Scouts can earn the compass points emblem. This emblem is awarded after a Webelos Scout has earned seven activity badges. For each four activity badges a Webelos Scout earns after that, he receives a compass point—east, west, north, and south.

Arrow of Light

The highest rank in Cub Scouting is the Arrow of Light Award. Earning this rank prepares a Webelos Scout to become a Boy Scout. Webelos Scouts who have earned the Arrow of Light Award have also completed all requirements for the Boy Scout badge.

This award is the only Cub Scout badge that can be worn on the Boy Scout uniform when a boy graduates into a troop. Adult leaders who earned the Arrow of Light Award when they were young may also show their achievement by wearing a special square knot on their adult uniform.
