Candlelight Ceremony
Posted On: 2021-05-26

Props needed: Arrow of Light Ceremonial Board cut out as a Large Arrow of Light, 4 red candles, 3 white candles, Webelos Award(s) and Certificate(s), and several straight pins.

Personnel needed: Akela (in costume) and 2 Webelos Scouts (1st Webelos Scout lights the 4 red candles as he says the names of the ranks)

The four red candles represent the Bobcat, Wolf, Bear, and Webelos ranks in Cubs Scouts.

2nd Webelos Scout: Webelos means We’ll Be Loyal Scouts.  Loyalty is one of the important things a Cub Scout stands for.  (He lights the 3 white candles as he says) He is loyal to God, his country, and his home.

Akela: _____ will you give me the Cub Scout sign and repeat the Cub Scout Promise? (pause as Scout does this) To your parents, I give the Arrow of Light Award and Certificate.  The badge is worn on the uniform, centered on the left shirt pocket flap.  This is the only emblem, besides the religious award, which can be worn on the Boy Scout uniform when earned as a Cub Scout.  On the Boy Scout uniform, it will go on the bottom of the left pocket.

Webelos Scout: _______ I salute you as a Webelos Scout (salute the Scout) and as you go further along the Scouting Trail, I leave you with the words of Sir Robert Baden Powell, the founder of Scouting as he said “Good Scouting to You.”
