Cubmaster, Webelos leader, Webelos Scouts, and their parents.
Webelos badges, safety pins.
Cubmaster: When our boys become Cub Scouts, they work to earn four badges to form a diamond on their left pocket. First they must earn their Bobcat badge. Next, they earn the Wolf badge and then they go on to achieve the Bear badge.
The final part of the Cub Scout diamond is earned as they move up the Scouting trail into the Webelos den. Our Webelos leader will tell us what is required to earn this badge.
Webelos Leader: The Webelos badge is earned by having an adult family member read and sign the Parent Guide in his Webelos Scout Book, by being active in the den for 3 months, by explaining the meaning of the Webelos badge, by explaining the parts of the Webelos uniform, by earning Fitness and two other activity badges, by planning and leading a flag ceremony in his den, by understanding the requirements for becoming a Boy Scout, and by becoming actively involved in his own religious faith. He must also understand and agree to follow the Outdoor Code.
This step on the Scouting trail prepares our boys to earn the highest Cub Scout award, the Arrow of Light, and move on. to a Boy Scout troop.
Tonight, Webelos Scout [name] has earned this final section of the diamond.
Will Webelos Scout [name] and his parents please come forward. (They do.)
Webelos Scout [name], you have completed the activity badges (name them), and demonstrated that you understand the Scout Oath, Law, motto, and slogan. You have also learned the Scout sign and handshake along with the Scout salute, and completed the other requirements of this badge.
I am very pleased to present this Webelos badge to your parents to pin on your uniform. (Repeat this for each Webelos Scout who receives the badge.)
Cubmaster: We are very proud of the Webelos Scouts who have received the Webelos badge tonight. The final step as a Cub Scout before graduating to a Boy Scout troop will be to earn the Arrow of Light Award. I look forward to presenting this to you in the future.
