Pack 444: Training - Webelos Scout Requirements


Webelos Rank


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.

  1. Have an adult member of your family read and sign the Parent Guide in the front of the Webelos Scout Book.
  2. Be an active member of your Webelos den for 3 months.
  3. Know and explain the meaning of the Webelos badge.
  4. Point out and explain the three parts of the Webelos Scout uniform. Tell when to wear the uniform and when not to wear it.
  5. Earn the Fitness and Citizen activity badges and one other activity badge from a different activity badge group.
  6. Plan and lead a flag ceremony in your den that includes the U.S. flag.
  7. Show that you know and understand the requirements to be a Boy Scout.
    a. Demonstrate the Scout salute, Scout sign, and Scout handshake.
    Explain when you would use them.
    b. Explain the Scout Oath, Scout Law, Scout motto, and Scout slogan.
