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.

All registered Tiger Cubs, Wolf Cubs, Bear Cubs, and Webelos Scouts can earn Cub Scout Academics and Sports Program known as "Belt Loops and Pins." - Academic & Sports p. 1 Belt Loops and Pins may be earned more than once.

Webelos Scout requirements

To earn the Webelos badge, you must complete the requirements below.

  1. Be an active member of your Webelos den for three months. (Being active means having good attendance, paying your den dues, and working on den projects.)
  2. Complete each of the following Webelos required adventures with your den or family:
    a. Cast Iron Chef
    b. Duty to God and You
    c. First Responder
    d. Stronger, Faster, Higher
    e. Webelos Walkabout
  3. Complete two Webelos elective adventures of your den or family’s choosing.
  4. With your parent or guardian, 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]


  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.
  • For each adventure, the Webelos Scout must complete the requirements as outlined in the Webelos Handbook. Requirement 7 of Bobcat and requirement 4 of Webelos and Arrow of Light are identical. If a Cub Scout earns his Bobcat rank during the same year that he begins working on his Webelos or Arrow of Light rank, he needs to complete the requirement only one time.

Cub Scout Academics and Sports Program

All registered Tiger Cubs, Wolf Cubs, Bear Cubs, and Webelos Scouts can earn Cub Scout Academics and Sports Program awards known as "Belt Loops and Pins." See your Webelos Scout Handbook section on Cub Scout Academics and Sports.

Earning Loops and Pins multiple times

"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."
