Webelos Den



2018-2019 

Boy's Den Leader

Melissa McCormick  208-340-6640

(Girl's Den Leader position available)

 

Webelos Dens are for children who are in 4th grade.

The Webelos program is different from the Cub Scout program. Everything in the Webelos Scout program is more challenging than what younger scouts in the Pack do. 

Webelos Scouts get to work on the five required Webelos adventures and choose 2 of the 18 elective adventures that are shared by the Webelos and Arrow of Light ranks. When a scout has done the requirements for an adventure, the Webelos Den Leader, rather than a parent, approves most of the adventures. For each adventure a scout completes, he/she receives a pin to wear on the Webelos colors or on his/her hat. After completing 7 adventures, including 5 required adventures and 2 elective adventures, a Scout can receive the Webelos badge.

After the scout has earned the Webelos badge, a Webelos Scout can work on the remaining 18 shared Webelos and Arrow of Light electives until he/she finishes fourth grade. The scout can choose elective adventures that may show him/her new hobbies and teach skills that will be useful during the Boy Scout years. When the scout completes an elective adventure, he/she receives an additional adventure loop to wear on the scouting belt.
