5th Grade - Arrow of Light Den

P241 Logo
Welcome to Arrow of Light Den

What is expected of my Arrow of Light Scout & me? 
Your new Arrow of Light scout will be required to complete (4) "Core" Adventures and (3) Elective Adventure in order to receive his "Arrow of Light Rank / Badge"
  1. Complete each of the following Wolf "Core" required adventures with your den or family:
  2. Complete three Webelos Elective Adventure of your den or family's choosing.
  3. With your parent or adult partner, complete the exercise 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, let your DL or Committee Chair know so we can make arrangements to bring in one of our laptops etc. for your scout to use.

Ideally we would like to have the scouts complete these advancement requirements by end of February or March. If any of the adventure requirements are missed it will be up to the parent to make this item up. Your Den Leader will be happy to work with you on any make up items that are needed. 

The defined / required adventures are designed to be worked on in the den. It is the Den Leader's choice if he wants each scout to pick their own elective or if he wants all scouts to do the same one as a den. The Duty to God adventure can and should be done at home with family or at place of worship. 

Once Core / required adventures are completed, there are a total of 18 elective adventures for your Webelos to work on if he would like to earn extra Activity Pins.

Login to Scoutbook on any computer or mobile device so you can track your scouts progress.

Is your Fifth Grader thinking about Scouts?  
Then you probably have some questions... 
Email our Den Leader at the link above and leave your phone number or go to this page and use our online form.  
A new Webelos - Arrow of Light Den will be forming soon so we'd love to hear from you about your interest. 

What the Arrow of Light scouts are "Doing"... 

Parent Action Items!
  • Complete the Duty to God Adventure at home
  • Complete at least (3) Elective Adventure at home.
  • Keep track of all electives adventures done at home and report them to your DL.
  • Login to Scoutbook to keep track of your scouts "Progress to Rank"
  • Webelos II's (AoL) Badge Checklist Worksheet PDF @ usscouts.org
  • Check with your Den Leader to see if he will need any added items such as paper towel rolls, coffee cans, crayons, markers etc. for upcoming craft projects.
NOTE: As your scout grows you are expected to take a step back and let your scout be more responsible for his own Adventures. As a Webelos II (Pre Boy Scout) he should be doing all the communicating with the Den Leader on items he has completed on his own. Helping him become more responsible is a cruital step into Boy Scouts. 
As part of his  AoL requirements he will need to demostate several things on his own and will be required to camp with a Boy Scout Troop of his choosing. The Webelos DL will help to make the arrangements for these events to occur.
You can help the pack by being a parent volunteer at our Santa Breakfast, Blue & Gold Banquet, Pinewood Derby or other pack events.
