The Webelos Scout program is for boys who have completed third grade or are age 10 but have not yet completed fifth grade or reached age 11 1/2. Pronounced "WEE-buh-los", the word "Webelos" means WE'll BE LOyal Scouts. After earning the Bobcat badge, a boy may earn the Webelos Badge and Arrow of Light Awards.
The Webelos Scout program is more challenging than Tiger, Wolf, and Bear programs for younger Cub Scouts. Webelos Scouts take part in Cub Scout pack meetings and activities as well as more Webelos activities and outdoor fun. Webelos Scouts can earn Webelos Activity Badges and Belt Loops and Pins at any time. The Webelos uniform has six parts.
