Arrow Of Light Badge Requirements
The Arrow of Light award is to the Cub scouting, what an Eagle
rank is to Boy Scouting. Quite simply, the highest honor a Cub Scout can earn.
Better yet, the Arrow of Light is the only Cub Scout badge that can be worn
on you son's Boy Scout uniform.

and one Boy Scout-oriented outdoor (Webelos Woods - first year Webelos) activity.

since completing the fourth grade (or at least six months since becoming 10
