|The Outdoorsman Activity Badge helps prepare Webelos Scouts for the Boy Scout Camping Merit Badge.|
|This Activity Badge is required for the Arrow of Light award.|
The Webelos Outdoorsman Activity Badge is one of 20 different Activity Badges that can be earned in the Webelos Scout Program. The requirements are typically worked on during den meetings or den activities while the skills are practiced at home, with the help of the Webelos Scout's family. The requirements are either completed with the den or at home with the den leader's approval. Projects are brought to meetings to share with the den and for Webelos Den Leader or Activity Badge Counselor approval.
