As with all Cub Scout ranks, you must first earn the Bobcat Badge to be eligible to work for this award.
Welcome to Webelos /Arrow of Light Den
Our Goals Webelos is a 20 month program for 4th and 5th grade boys and girls to prepare them to join a Scouts BSA 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 ‘scout-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 & the Arrow of Light to be earned at the 5th grade. The final part of Webelos is bridging over to Scouts BSA Troop 351.
