The Webelos Scout program is for boys who have completed third grade or are age 10 but have not yet completed fifth grade or reached age 11 1/2. Pronounced "WEE-buh-los", the word "Webelos" means WE'll BE LOyal Scouts. After earning the Bobcat badge, a boy may earn the Webelos badge by completing requirements lised below.

Webelos Program

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.

Instead of working on achievements and electives as other boys in Cub Scouting do, Webelos Scouts work on activity badges and the Arrow of Light Award, which is a bridge to Boy Scouting.


Webelos Scout requirements

  1. Be an active member of your Webelos den for three months.
  2. Complete each of the required Adventures with your den or family.
  3. Complete at least one elective Adventure of your den or family's choosing.
  4. With your parent, guardian, or other caring adult, complete the exercises in the pamphlet How to Protect Your Children from Child Abuse: A Parent's Guide, and earn the Cyber Chip award for your age.[1]

Footnotes

  1. If your family does not have Internet access at home AND you do not have ready Internet access at school or another public place or via a mobile device, the Cyber Chip portion of this requirement may be waived by your parent or guardian.
