Webelos dens are for boys who have completed third grade (or reached age 10). The Webelos program is different from the Cub Scout program. Everything in the Webelos Scout program is more challenging than what younger boys in the pack do. Webelos Scouts get to work on the 20 Webelos adventure pins.

Webelos Scouts work on requirements during their den meetings and special outings. Once a scout learns a skill, he practices it at den meetings and at home on his own. His family helps him at home. Webelos Scouts bring the projects they do at home to the den meetings to show others, and to have the Webelos den leader approve their projects.

When a scout has done the requirements for an activity badge, the Webelos den leader, rather than a parent, approves it. It takes five required adventure pins and two elective adventure pins to earn the Webelos badge. 

Information and tips on preparing for each den meeting or outing will be posted solely on our den facebook page unless there is a concensus that a newsletter is needed.  There will be the expectation on the scouts in doing some light studying in learning some things for our den meetings and the facebook page is a way for parents to get the information needed to aid in the learning process.  As this is the most effective means of insuring information is sent out due to emails being misdirected into SPAM folders, please be sure to check the page often.

Changes between Webelos and Cub Scouts


  1. Advancement Sign Off - each Webelos scout is supposed to take his handbook to the den leader or assistant den leader for sign off when a requirement is completed. This is a change from having a parent sign off every activity. This change prepares the scout to have a Scoutmaster sign off each advancement requirement in Boy Scouts. There is more responsibility put on the scout to remember and bring his handbook to meetings and get it signed.  
                                                                                                                                                                                         Tip: Help the scouts along until they get the routine. Have them bring their Webelos handbook to every meeting and reward them for bringing them until they get it. Have a list of adventure requirements that you plan on completing at a meeting so you, your assistant, or a parent on your behalf can sign off those that are completed right away. This will help the scouts understand the importance of the handbook.                                                                                                                      
  2. Webelos Adventure Pins - Tiger, Bear and Wolf scouts earned belt loops. Webelos earn pins which can be displayed on the Webelos Colors device. This moves closer to the Boy Scout merit badge system where recognition items are displayed on a sash.                                                                                                                                                                              
  3. More Electives - Webelos have two elective adventures and Arrow of Light has three electives. Individual scouts may complete different adventures at different times. This change gives the scout more control over his advancement and lets him choose areas he enjoys more.                                                                                                                                           
  4. Camping - Webelos dens should Camp! Cub Scouts can camp as a pack, but Webelos should go out as a den as much as possible to give the scouts opportunities to learn and use their new skills. Each Webelos scout needs to have an adult responsible for him on each camping trip. Campouts in the backyard with dinner and s'mores made on a gas grill can be a great way to ease your scouts into the world of camping. Taking your den to a district or council organized summer Webelos camp should be a required part of your program. Most councils have a one or two day overnight camp every summer for Webelos. A Packing List is helpful for a short campout.                                                                                                      
    Tip: Be sure you follow Rules for Safe Scouting practices on your camping trips.                                                               
  5. Patrols - a patrol is just another name for the den but it does have some significance. Boy Scouts are organized into Patrols, each with their own name, flag, yell, leader, and emblem. As Webelos, a den can begin to operate as a patrol and select an emblem for their uniform, make up a yell, name, and flag. This can really get the scouts to become a team. Taking their flag along on a campout or hike and announcing themselves with their yell is pretty fun.                                                              
    Tip:  Have a den meeting with the goal of becoming a patrol - choosing a name, selecting an emblem, coming up with a yell, and designing a flag. You might also elect a patrol leader (a denner) to serve for the next month. The den leaders will spend some extra time with the patrol leader (PL) and assistant patrol leader (APL) explaining how to run a meeting, topics to cover, and giving him encouragement to lead his friends.
