Fogelsville Cub Scout Pack 72

Arrow of Light

When he completes the Arrow of Light Award, a Webelos Scout has learned everything he needs to know to join a troop and can be presented with the Boy Scout badge upon joining the troop.  By earning the Arrow of Light, a seamless transition is built between the Webelos Scout and the Boy Scout troop of his choice.  The Arrow of Light Ceremony signifies the crossing over of a cub scout into the Boy Scout program.

Arrow of Light badge requirements

These are the requirements as they appear in the 2003 edition of the Webelos Handbook (33452).

After you have completed all five of the above requirements, and after a talk with your Webelos den leader, arrange to visit, with your parent or guardian, a meeting of a Boy Scout troop you think you might like to join. Have a conference with the Scoutmaster.

Complete the Honesty Character Connection

Know: Say the Cub Scout Promise to your family. Discuss these questions with them. What is a promise? What does it mean to keep your word? What does it mean to be trustworthy? What does honesty mean?
Commit: Discuss these questions with your family. Why is a promise important? Why is it important for people to trust you when you give your word? When might it be difficult to be truthful? List examples.
Practice: Discuss with a family member why it is important to be trustworthy and honest. How can you do your best to be honest even when it is difficult?
