Webelos I Den

As with all Cub Scout ranks, you must first earn the Bobcat Badge to be eligible to work for this award.

Welcome to Webelos 1 Den

Boys in the fourth and fifth grades (9 and 10 year olds) are called “Webelos Scouts”.  “Webelos” is an Acronym which stands for WE’ll  BE LOyal Scouts (WE-BE-LO-S), and is not a “plural” word form.  It is an adjective, and should always include the “S”.

Our Goals  Webelos is a 20 month program for 4th and 5th grade boys to prepare to join a Boy Scout troop while learning outdoor skills and participating in 20 different activity badges. A well-run group of Webelos is a gradual change from being an ‘adult-run’ den to being a ‘boy-run’ patrol ready to fit right into an adventurous scouting troop.
Summary The Webelos program has two major milestones – the Webelos rank badge to be earned at the 4th grade level and the Arrow of Light to be earned at the 5th grade. The final part of Webelos is bridging over into a Boy Scout troop selected individually by the scout.
