Four Winds
Posted On: 2021-06-25

The Four Winds (four Cub Scouts), each with a candle; graduating Webelos Scouts and their parents; light switch operator; Scoutmaster; Cubmaster; Webelos den leader.

Four candles, Boy Scout neckerchiefs, graduation certificates, gifts (optional).

Graduating Webelos Scouts and their parents are at the front of the room, which is in semi-darkness. Cub Scouts representing the Four Winds stand in each corner of the room. Each lights his candle as he expresses his wish for the graduating Webelos Scouts. After expressing his wish, he comes to the front of the room.

North Wind: I am the North Wind. People say I am cold, but to you, I will always bring the warmest of winds because you have been true-blue Cub Scouts and Webelos Scouts and have lived up to the Law of the Pack.

South Wind: I am the South Wind. I wish you good Scouting. Over hill and dale, I have carried stories of you and your experiences. As Cub Scouts and Webelos Scouts you have been happy, game, and fair - a credit to your den and pack.

East Wind: I am the East Wind. I wish you well. I have spread the story of our fun and happiness in Cub Scouting with Pack [number] and of how you lived up to the Cub Scout Promise and were fair and helpful.

West Wind: I am the West Wind. I would like everyone present to know that these graduating Webelos Scouts did not walk the Cub Scout trail alone.

Each had the wonderful help and guidance of his parents. Parents, continue to help your boys go and grow!

All Winds: (in unison.) We will be with you forever. We wish you the best of luck in your travels and experiences on the Scouting trail.

(The room lights come on. The graduating Webelos Scouts and their families are introduced to their new Scoutmaster. The parents replace the Webelos Scout neckerchief with a new Boy Scout neckerchief. The Cubmaster presents graduation certificates. The Webelos den leader may present a gift and give a short speech followed by a thundering cheer from the den as all return to their seats.)

(All exit.)
