Cub Scout Webelos Handbook
The Webelos Scout program, for boys who are in the fourth or fifth grade,
is filled with activities and outdoor fun. Everything in the Webelos Scout
program is more challenging than the things the younger boys in the pack do.
Webelos Scouts are still in Cub Scouting. They take part in Cub Scout pack
meetings, events, and outings. But the Webelos den also makes its own plans
and enjoys many activities that the younger Cub Scouts don't get to do.
Instead of working on achievements and electives as other boys in Cub
Scouting do, Webelos Scouts work on activity badges and the Arrow of Light
Award, which is a bridge to Boy Scouting. The Webelos Handbook has sections
that cover the 20 activity badges, divided into five groups:
- Physical Skills
- Mental Skills
The Webelos Handbook also tells about rank advancement and special awards
that Webelos Scouts can earn.
The Cub Scout Webelos Handbook (item number 33452) is available at your
local council service center or wherever Scouting merchandise is sold. Visit
