ARRANGEMENT
In a dimly lit room, the red spotlight is on the bridge, which is centered between the U.S. and pack flags. Assembled on stage, to the left of the bridge, are the parents and Webelos den leader; on the opposite end of the bridge is the Scoutmaster.

Cubmaster: Tonight we mark a great occasion, the graduation of Webelos Scout [name] from our pack. We are sad to see him leave because he has been a great help to our pack, but we are happy for him because he is going on to the great adventure of Boy Scouting. He has worked hard for this night and has advanced well. Please escort Webelos Scout [name] to the front.

(The graduate, who has been standing on the opposite side of the room, is escorted to the front by the denner from the Webelos den, who carries the Webelos den flag. They stop at the front, The graduating Webelos Scout salutes and joins his den leader on stage. The denner returns to his place.)

Cubmaster: (Recaps information such as date boy joined the pack, ranks he has earned, awards he received, the date he joined Webelos den, etc.)

Webelos Leader: (Recaps activities in Webelos den, activity badges he has earned.) Webelos Scout [name], it is with great pride that I now ask you for your Webelos neckerchief (After the graduate removes his neckerchief, the leader escorts him to the end of the bridge, where the Cubmaster is waiting.)

Cubmaster: I am pleased to see that you are wearing the Arrow of Light (if he is), the highest award in Cub Scouting. This is the only Cub Scout badge of rank that you will be permitted to wear on your Boy Scout uniform. And now, you may take the final steps. (The Webelos Scout crosses the bridge. He stops in the center, turns, and salutes the Cubmaster with the Boy Scout salute. He proceeds across the bridge and gives the Scoutmaster the Boy Scout salute.)

Scoutmaster: [Name], we are happy to welcome you to our troop. I can see by the Arrow of Light that you are prepared to join the great fellowship of Boy Scouting. (If the boy does not have the Arrow of Light, makes any appropriate welcoming speech, then a short statement on what is expected of a Boy Scout.) Please repeat with me the Scout Oath. (The Scoutmaster and Scout exchange salutes and a Scout handclasp.) As a token of this important occasion, I would like to present to you. the troop neckerchief

(The Scoutmaster and parents meet in front of the bridge.)

[Name], welcome to our troop. I congratulate you on the fine work that you have done with your son in Cub Scouting. You will find new adventures with your son in our troop.

(The red light is turned off. The house lights go on. The participants leave the stage.)
