Webelos Goal: Prepare a Cub Scout to be a Boy Scout

Reminder: Annual Scout Dues for the year will be collect
$105 retuning scout $115 for new Scouts

Webelos is a 20 month program for 4th and 5th grade boys to prepare
to join a Boy Scout troop while learning outdoors skills and participating in 20 different activity badges. A well-run group of Webelos is a gradual change from being an ‘adult-run’ den to being a ‘boy-run’ patrol ready to fit right into an adventurous scouting troop. This migration requires the parents and den leaders to give the scouts more and more control, decision-making power, and responsibility as they progress in skills, abilities, and maturity. A good program also provides the scouts with many opportunities to grow in the Webelos Virtues.

Our Webelos den has been very exciting to watch as the boys change from being squirrely 3rd graders mostly intent on running around and playing to being a patrol that can recognize a goal, the requirements to fulfill the goal, and the ambition to accomplish the goal. The trail to the destination
is as rewarding as the destination, but they learn to plan the work and work the plan and enjoy the process. Of course, we did not turn everything over to the boys at the First Webelos Meeting – we gradually give them more tasks to do, such as taking attendance, checking uniforms, leading flag ceremonies, making announcements, preparing snacks, planning Webelos activity badge outings, organizing campouts, and leading entire meetings.

Applying Patches to Uniform Tip: buy the Badge Magic self adhesive from the Scout Store, just cut out the shape and stick on the back of the patches, peal off the backing and press onto uniform. Then press with an hot iron to secure (not sewing needed). Avoid the patch adhesives from craft stores, they are worthless, get Badge Magic or get ready to spend a few hours sewing.

Please do not buy any other patches than the ones listed above, Boys will earn patches throughout the year and will be presented at Pack and Den Meetings.
