Webelos II Den.
Webelos covers two years of activity for the scouts, and so the rank is broken into Webelos I and Webelos II (Arrow of Light Scouts). Webelos I Scouts are boys, aged 9-10, and usually in 4th grade. The requirements for the Webelos badge and “Activity Badges” are somewhat at more difficult and challenging than those for Bear rank. If you are brand new to Scouting, your first goal will be to achieve your Bobcat rank, which you will learn about at your first Den Meeting.
The Webelos Scout Program prepares boys who have completed third grade or are age 10 but have not yet completed fifth grade or reached age 11 1/2 to bridge into a troop. 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 and Arrow of Light Award. Shorter Webelos Scout Programs are available for Webelos who start in fifth grade to earn their Arrow of Light in as little as six months.
The Webelos Program is more challenging than Tiger, Wolf, and Bear programs for younger Cub Scouts. Webelos Scouts take part in Cub Scout pack meetings and activities as well as Webelos den meetings, activities, and outdoor fun. Webelos Scouts can earn Webelos Activity Badges and Belt Loops and Pins at any time.
