The Webelos Scouts program is filled with activities and outdoor fun for boys in the fourth or fifth grade. Everything in the Webelos Scout program is more challenging than the things the younger boys in the pack do. Webelos Scouts are still Cub Scouts who take part in Cub Scout pack meetings, events, and outings. But the Webelos den also makes its own plans and enjoys many activities that the younger Cub Scouts don't get to do.
