Welcome to the Adventure of Cub Scouting!
Cub Scouts have the time of their lives making new friends and learning new things in an environment designed to help them succeed. From building a Pinewood Derby® car to learning how to roast the perfect marshmallow at a family camp out, your child will LOVE being a Cub Scout. So if your child is in the kindergarten through fifth grades, or 5 to 10 years old, then it’s time to have some fun with the Cub Scouts!

“Webelos” stands for “We’ll Be Loyal Scouts.” As Webelos near the end of the Cub Scout trail, it’s time for them to embrace that pledge and prepare for the next leg of the journey: Scouts BSA.
Webelos and their families should be familiar and comfortable with the youth and adult leaders of the Scouts BSA Troop, their role in the Troop and Troop activities, and feel excited about beginning this new adventure. The passage from a Pack to a Troop should be smooth, with no time lost in between. The crossover ceremony should clearly signify the transition to a new level of Scouting. It could include the presentation of the Arrow of Light badge, a Scouts BSA Handbook, and a Troop neckerchief.
