Crossing The Bridge



PERSONNEL
Webelos den leader, Scoutmaster, a Boy Scout, graduating Webelos Scout and his parents.

EQUIPMENT
A rustic bridge; two spotlights, one directed on each end of the bridge; Boy Scout neckerchief.

ARRANGEMENT
Place the bridge on the stage or in front of the pack meeting room. The Webelos den leader, with the graduating Webelos Scout and his parents, stands on one end of the bridge. On the other end is the Scoutmaster with a Boy Scout holding a rolled troop neckerchief.

Webelos Den Leader: (To parents.) During the years you and your son have been in Cub Scouting, we have had numerous opportunities to work together along the trail. Now [Webelos Scout's name] is leaving the pack to enter Boy Scouting. I am sure you are going to find the same satisfactions there that you have found in Cub Scouting.

To symbolize your son's growth and his entrance into Boy Scouting, I will divest him of his Webelos Scout neckerchief, and you and he will then cross over the bridge into Boy Scouting, to be welcomed by Scoutmaster [name] of Troop [number].

(After the Webelos den leader has removed the Webelos Scout's neckerchief and saluted him, the Webelos Scout and his parents cross the bridge and stand before the Scoutmaster.)

Scoutmaster: (Greets Webelos Scout and parents with handshake.) As Scoutmaster of Troop [number], it is indeed a pleasure for me to welcome you into the troop. We meet each week at [time] at [place]. We shall look forward to welcoming you at our next meeting.

(To boy.) And now I present to you this Boy Scout neckerchief (Places rolled neckerchief around the boy's neck.) May you wear it with pride; its colors are those of Troop [number], which welcomes you as its newest member.

(All exit.)
