The Spirit of Scouting

Personnel: Arrow of Light Award Candidates and their Parent, Webelos Den Leader, Committee Member and Den Chiefs.

Equipment: Ceremonial board, about 18 inches square, with four candles: blue-spirit of Cub Scouting, white-spirit of scouting, yellow-Arrow of Light rank, green-Scout, Arrow of Light Awards, straight pins.

Committee Member: Tonight we honor the Webelos that have completed the requirements for the Arrow of Light Award.  The Arrow of Light Award is the highest award that any Cub Scout can obtain.  This is the only award that a Cub Scout may wear after he becomes a Boy Scout.

(Den Chiefs come forward and get their candles.  Then they line up down the middle making two rows for the families to come through.

Committee Member: This candle (white) represents the spirit of Scouting.  As I light this candle may the tiny flame remind us all of our good times in the past and good times yet to come in Scouting.

Committee Member: Now I will light the way for you Webelos who have fulfilled all the requirements for the Arrow of Light Award.  (Light the Den Chiefs candles.)

Leader: Now will the following Webelos and their parents come forward to receive the Arrow of Light.

Committee Member: Before you is a blue candle that represents the spirit of Cub Scouting-that spirit of giving goodwill and doing your best.  (Lights the blue candle)  Do you promise to fulfill the Cub Scout Promise and the Cub Scout motto, "Do Your Best", when you receive the Scout badge?  If so say, "We will'.

Webelos: We will.

Committee Member: These Webelos 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?  If so, say "We will".

Parents: We will.

Leader: Now, Webelos and parents, form a circle, holding hands.  The yellow candle represents the Arrow of Light.  I am using the flame from the spirit of Scouting to light the yellow candle.  (Light the yellow candle).  Remember that the spirit of Cub Scouting and Scouting are one of the same.  The spirit of the entire Scouting movement is one of service, high ideals, and fellowship.  Webelos, will you please repeat after me the Webelos promise: "I (name) promise to do my best to show that a Webelos Scout is faithful to his Cub Scout Promise, to be a true Webelos Scout by joining a Boy Scout troop and to uphold the Scout Oath and Law, as I have upheld the Cub Scout Promise, and the Law of the Pack.
