Posted On: 2021-07-14
Props: U.S. flag, Pack flag, Webelos Den flag, bridge, troop neckerchief, and red spotlight.
Personnel: Cubmaster, Webelos Scout and his parents, Webelos Den Leader, Scoutmaster, Denner, and light switch operator.
(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(s) ___from our Pack. We are sad to see him (them) leave because he (they) has (have) been a great help to our Pack, but we are happy for him (them) because he (they) is (are) going on to the great adventure of Boy Scouting. He (They) has (have) worked hard for this night and has (have) advanced well. Please escort Webelos Scout(s) to the front. (The graduate(s), who have been standing on the opposite side of the room, are 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 Scout(s) joined Pack, ranks they earned, awards they received, the date they joined Webelos Den, etc.)
Webelos Leader: (Recaps activities in Webelos Den, activity badges they have earned.) Webelos Scout ___, 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: ____ 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 Scout does not have the Arrow of Light, make 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 (or red loops for his Boy Scout uniform.)
