A boy who is 10 years old or is in the fourth grade is a Webelos Scout, and his adventures are found in the Webelos Handbook.
Like all other new Cub Scouts, a Webelos must first earn his Bobcat rank. After completing the requirements for Bobcat he may go on to complete the requirements for the Wolf rank and the many electives that are offered for his rank.
The Webelos rank is earned by completing the requirements as described below.
1. Be an active member of your Webelos den for three months. (Being active means having good attendance, paying your den dues, and working on den projects.)
2. Complete each of the following Webelos required adventures with your den or family:
a. Cast Iron Chef
b. Duty to God and You
c. First Responder
d. Stronger, Faster, Higher
e. Webelos Walkabout
3. Complete two Webelos elective adventures of your den or family’s choosing.
4. With your parent or guardian, complete the exercises in the pamphlet How to Protect Your Children From Child Abuse: A Parent’s Guide, and earn the Cyber Chip award for your age.*
*If your family does not have Internet access at home AND you do not have ready Internet access at school or another public place or via a mobile device, the Cyber Chip portion of this requirement may be waived by your parent or guardian.
