Bear To Webelos Transition
Cubmaster: Tonight we have ___ Bear Cub Scouts who are graduating into the Webelos Cub Scouts. Before we call these cubs and their parents forward, I will ask that our pack flag be brought forward, and that Webelos Den Leader's come forward with the Webelos den flag.
(When they are in position Cubmaster continues.)
Now will the following Bear Cub Scouts come forward with their parents and stand to the left of the bridge.
Read the names of the Bears who are ready to graduate
Webelos Den Leader, will you please explain the purpose of the Webelos den?
Webelos Den Leader: Our Webelos den has one big purpose. That's to prepare our Webelos Scouts for Boy Scouting. We work on very exciting activity badge areas, learning things that may lead us to lifelong hobbies or vocations. At the same time, we study the Boy Scout requirements so the boys will be ready to become Boy Scouts when they reach 11. We participate in all regular pack activities, work on selected activity badges, and work toward finishing the requirements for the Webelos badge and the Arrow of Light Award. We also visit Boy Scout Troops to show our boys what Scouting is really like. As you know Webelos is a two year program. During your second year, you will also go camping with Boy Scout Troops.
We have made a promise to our boys to help them know the great outdoors and to go on hikes and overnight camping trips with our dads and with the Troop. The Webelos den activity starts the Webelos Scouts along the outdoor Scouting trail.
Cubmaster: I now call on our Webelos Den Leader ______________ to present the Webelos colors.
Webelos Den Leader: We welcome you all into our Webelos. We have fun as we practice and learn the activity badges and Scout requirements. As we work and play together, a lot will be expected of you. I am happy to present to you your Webelos colors, which you will wear on your right sleeve. Welcome to Webelos.
Cubmaster: Each one of you parents has helped your son along the Cub Scout trail this far. It is important now that you continue to stay with him and become thoroughly familiar with the Scout trail in our Webelos den. We will soon have the pleasure, we know, of seeing you present your son with the Arrow of Light Award.
