Traveler
Activity Badge

The Webelos Traveler 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.

Traveler requirements

Do five of these:
  1. Get a map or timetable from a railroad, bus line, airline, subway, or light rail. The line should serve the place where you live or near where you live. Look up some places it goes.
  2. Use a timetable to plan a trip from your home to a city in another state by railroad, bus, airline, or ferry.
  3. With the help of your parent, guardian, teacher, or librarian, use a map site on the Internet to plan a trip from your home to a nearby place of interest. Download and/or print the directions and street map showing how to go from your home to the place you chose.
  4. With your parent or guardian, take a trip to a place that interests you. Go by car, bus, boat, train, or plane.
  5. Figure out what it costs per mile for the trip you took or planned to fulfill requirement 2, 4, 6, or 7. (Don't forget to include getting back to your starting point!)
  6. Decide on four nearby trips you would like to take with your parents or guardian. Draw the route of each trip on a highway map. Using the map, act as navigator on one of these trips. It should start at your home, be at least 25 miles long, and have six or more turns.
  7. Decide on a trip you would like to take that lasts at least two days. Pack everything you would need for that trip.
  8. Check the first aid kit in the family car to see if it contains what is needed. Explain what you found.
  9. Look at a map legend on a road map of your area. Learn what the symbols mean. Show your den members what you have learned.
  10. On a road map of your area, find a place of interest and draw two different routes between it and your home. Use the map legend to determine which route is shorter in miles.
  11. Make a list of safety precautions you, as a traveler, should take for travel by each of the following; car, bus, plane, boat, train.
  12. While you are a Webelos Scout, earn the Cub Scout Academics belt loop for Geography.
  13. While you are a Webelos Scout, earn the Cub Scout Academics belt loop for Map and Compass.

Many Webelos Scouts may earn belt loops and pins a second time to qualify for Webelos Activity Badges. All boys may earn belt loops more than once; however, leaders should encourage boys to try different requirements and earn the pin. Packs should have a clear policy in place to determine whether the pack or the boy's family will be responsible for the cost of awards that are earned more than once.
