The planning toward the Arrow of Light
The goal of the Cub Scout Pack should be: for the Cubmaster and the Webelos Den leaders to graduate every Webelos Scout into a Boy Scout Troop.
The transition from Cub Scout Pack to Boy Scout Troop should be smooth, and hopefully, with no time lost in between.
To work with and guide the Webelos Cub Scout to be the best he can be, all the way to the Boy Scout Troop. Develop a working relationship with the leadership of the Boy Scout Troop in your community. Compare calendars of Troop and Pack activities to coordinate activities. Try to do some community events together. Work with Troop leaders to secure den leaders for the Pack. Work with Troop leaders to plan and conduct the Webelos overnight activities. Work with Troop leaders to plan the Troop Meeting Visits. Invite Troop leaders both young and adult to Pack nights or other special activities. Plan a meaningful crossover ceremony. Encourage your Webelos leaders to move into the Troop with the boys too.
To earn their Bobcat Badge, Webelos Badge, Compass Point Badge, and Arrow of Light Badge. To have fun and adventure. To attend the Webelos Den meetings. To wear the Scout uniform with PRIDE. To achieve as many activity badges as they can. To advance the Webelos Trail and grow in knowledge and skills. To crossover to Boy Scouts.
A Webelos Den size should range from 6 to 8 Scouts that are in the fourth or fifth grade or are 10 years of age. The Webelos program is designed to start challenging the Scouts more physically and mentally with the achievements they start to earn.
There are three types of Webelos-level achievements, and they overlap each other in the two years of the Webelos program: The Webelos badge The Compass points emblem and compass points The Arrow of Light
The first step in earning Arrow of Light is to earn the rank of Webelos. Bobcat Badge Be an active member for 3 months. Know and explain the meaning of the Webelos Badge Be able to identify the 3 parts of the Webelos uniform Earn Fitness and Citizen activity badges and 1 other badge from a different activity group Plan and lead a flag ceremony Show the you know and understand the requirements to be a Boy Scout Scout Salute, Scout Sign, Scout Handshake and explain when to use them Explain the Scout Oath, Scout Motto, Scout Slogan Explain and agree to the Outdoor Code-Leave No Trace Behind Complete the Faith Requirements
After the Webelos badge is earned then your Scout can begin his journey on earning the Compass Points Emblem. The Compass Point Emblem consists of three points. The compass points emblem is awarded after the Scout has earned the Webelos badge and four additional activity badges for a total of 7. A “compass point” will be added to the emblem for each additional four activity badges the Scout earns for a total of 19 activity badges. If a Webelos Scout completes all 20 activity badges, they will earn the Webelos Super Achiever badge.
The Webelos Scout must be active in the den for at least 6 months and earn the Webelos badge. The Scout must show and tell of their knowledge of the Boy Scout Oath, Promise, Moto, Slogan, Handshake, Sign, Salute, and the Law. The Scout must be able to tell how the Cub Scout uniform is different from the Boy Scout uniform. The Scout must be able to tie the joining knot (square knot). The Scout must earn a total of eight activity badges, including: citizen, readyman, fitness, and outdoorsman. The total must include at least one from each of the five activity badge groups. The Arrow of Light Award can be worn under the left pocket of the Scout uniform and is the only Cub Scout award that can be worn on the Boy Scout uniform.
