The Spirit Of Scouting



PERSONNEL
Arrow of Light Award candidates and their parents, Webelos den leader (or committee member in charge of this pack advancement ceremony).

EQUIPMENT
Ceremonial board, about 18" square, with four candles: blue - spirit of Cub Scouting, white - spirit of Scouting, yellow - Arrow of Light rank, green - Boy Scout; Arrow of Light Awards and certificates; safety pins.

ARRANGEMENT
At the opening of the ceremony, only the white candle is lighted. The white candle is used to light the blue and yellow candles as the ceremony progresses.

Den Leader: Will the following Webelos Scouts come forward to receive the Arrow of Light Award. Please bring your parents with you. (They come forward as names are called.) You Webelos Scouts have fulfilled all the requirements for the Arrow of Light Award, the highest rank in Cub Scouting. You have also visited a Boy Scout troop and talked with the Scoutmaster.

Before you is a blue candle that represents the spirit of Cub Scouting - that spirit of giving goodwill and doing your best. (Lights blue candle.) This white candle represents the spirit of Scouting. Do you promise to fulfill the Cub Scout Promise and the Cub Scout motto, Do Your Best, when you receive the Scout badge?

Webelos Scouts: We do.

Cubmaster: Webelos Scouts have faithfully promised always to keep alive the spirit of Cub Scouting. As their parents, do you also promise to continue to help your boy in his Scouting adventures?

Parents: We do.

Den Leader: I now use the flame of the spirit of Scouting to light the yellow candle representing the Arrow of Light Award. (Lights yellow candle.) Remember that the spirit of Cub Scouting and Boy Scouting are one and the same. The spirit of the entire Scouting movement is one of service, high ideals, and fellowship.

To each of you parents I present the Arrow of Light Award and ask that you present it to your son.

This award is worn on the Webelos Scout uniform, centered on the flap of the left shirt pocket, and on the Boy Scout uniform later. (Presents certificates, awards, and safety pins, and instructs parents in pinning badges on shirts.) It is a great honor for me to greet you who have earned the Arrow of Light Award. (Gives Cub Scout handshake.) Notice that we are leaving unlighted the green candle representing a Boy Scout. This is to remind you Webelos Scouts of something yet to be enjoyed, a grand adventure that will open to each of you upon graduation from the pack. Good luck and success to you and your family in your future Scouting career.
