Webelos is a 20 month program for 4th and 5th grade boys and girls to prepare to join a Boy Scout troop while learning outdoors skills and participating in 20 different activity badges. A well-run group of Webelos is a gradual change from being an'adult-run' den to being a 'scout-run' patrol ready to fit right into an adventurous scouting troop. This migration requires the parents and den leaders to give the scouts more and more control, decision-making power, and responsibility as they progress in skills, abilities, and maturity.

The highest award in Cub Scouts is earned by Webelos that have been activeparticipants in their den and are ready to join a Boy Scout troop. Many of therequirements for the Arrow of Light are intended to familiarize the scout with alocal troop and hopefully show that crossing over into a troop is the nextstep to take in scouting. A scout that earns the Arrow of Light patch has alsocompleted nearly all the requirements to earn the Scout badge in the troop so they have already begun the Boy Scout trail.
