A Webelos Ceremony
Posted On: 2019-10-02
Assistant Cub Master:
In fourth and fifth grade, Cub Scouts are brought into the tribe of Webelos. Webelos stands for `we'll be loyal scouts'. In the tribe of Webelos, boys prepare themselves for Boy Scouting. Webelos work on 20 different activity badges from five skill groups: physical, mental, outdoors, community, and technical skills. After three months in the Webelos Den, earning three activity pins and learning about Boy Scout ways, they have completed all the requirements for the Webelos badge.
There are Cub Scouts among us tonight who have earned their Webelos Badge. Would the following boys please come forward with your parents to be recognized and honored by the Pack.
List of boys.
You have completed all the requirements for your Webelos badge, have moved along the Cub Scout trail and have earned a place in the Webelos Tribe. Receive now the mark of the Webelos Tribe, a BLUE mark, symbolizing vigilance, perseverance and justice.
[Mark each boy with BLUE face paint.]
Assistant Cub Master:
[Present Webelos badges to parents as Cub Master paints faces] It is our pleasure to award your Webelos badge to your parents, who have been your Akela in completing these requirements. Parents, please pin the Webelos badge to your son's left shirt pocket and congratulate him on a `Job Well Done'. Parents, as your son's Akela, you are entitled to proudly wear the parent's Webelos pin enclosed with your son's Webelos badge.
