Boys who are ten years old or are in the Fourth Grade are Webelos Scouts. Their adventures can be found in the Webelos Handbook.
Webelos (short for "We'll Be Loyal Scouts") is a very special rank. This is the first leg of a one-and-a-half year journey towards becoming a Boy Scout. The requirements and electives offer more challenges, and the boys begin to take on deeper leadership roles.
Like all new Cub Scouts, Webelos must first earn their Bobcat Rank. After having earned Bobcat, the Webelos can pursue the requirements and electives offered for this rank.
- 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.)
- 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
- Complete two Webelos elective adventures of your den or family’s choosing.
- 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.*
*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.
- Den Leader: Currently Open
- Assistant Den Leader: Jack Jones
