The Webelos Fitness Activity Badge is one of 20 different Activity Badges that can be earned in the Webelos Scout Program. The requirements are typically worked on during den meetings or den activities while the skills are practiced at home, with the help of the Webelos Scout's family. The requirements are either completed with the den or at home with the den leader's approval. Projects are brought to meetings to share with the den and for Webelos Den Leader or Activity Badge Counselor approval.
Health habits learned in childhood tend to last a lifetime. The Fitness Activity Badge is designed to make Webelos more aware of good physical fitness, and what proper food and rest can do for him.
