Pick 3 Electives they’d like to see us work on! We’ll try to do as many as we can, but I definitely want to do the fun ones first if possible! – See attached list of possible electives, and then look through the Webelos Book for more information related to those electives.

Updated Dates for Fall-Family Camp. We do our own Fall Family Camp, however, anyone interested in going is welcome to go, $30.00 for every family member. Session I – October 26-28, Session II – November 2-4, Session III – November 9-11
Beach Sweep –November 3rd…. I will be making awards for scouts who participate ☺
Webelos Woods – I’d like our Webelos to do this for sure November 16th – November 18th, $45 for scout, $15.00 for parent. Webelos Woods is the first opportunity for Webelos Scouts to learn what Boy Scouting is all about. A weekend camping trip that introduces them to Boy Scout camping using the patrol method, in a Scout-led outdoor adventure, supervised by adult leaders, and with parents nearby. This weekend event gives the Webelos a little taste of the independence and self-reliance they learn in Boy Scouts. Webelos Woods helps to earn their Arrow of Light and will also help them to cross-over to Boy Scouts.
We need to pick dates for our Pack Fall Family Camp at John Thomas Property. We can pick any of the weekends in November, I’d suggest moving the beach sweep to November 3rd, and picking November 10th for our campout if that makes sense. Let me know though. Otherwise we’ll end up in December for our Camp Out which isn’t bad (could be cold), but we’re doing another in January. We voted and agreed on November 10th.
Importance of Uniforms, Oath, Law. Parents practice at home with your scouts!!

Treasury Report: Lacey (treasurer) $370.00 is our starting balance for the year.
The highest rank in Cub Scouting is the Arrow of Light. Earning this rank prepares a Webelos Scout to become a Boy Scout. Scouts must complete four required adventures and three elective adventures to earn the Arrow of Light rank. For each adventure a boy completes, he receives a pin to wear on the Webelos colors or on his hat.
The Arrow of Light badge is the only Cub Scout badge that can be worn on the Boy Scout uniform when a boy graduates into a troop. Adult leaders who earned the Arrow of Light rank when they were young may also show their achievement by wearing a special square knot on their adult uniform.
Webelos dens are for boys who have completed third grade (or reached age 10). Webelos Scouts get to work on the five required Webelos adventures and choose two of the 18 elective adventures that are shared by the Webelos and Arrow of Light ranks.
When a boy has done the requirements for an adventure, the Webelos den leader, rather than a parent, approves most of the adventures. For each adventure a boy completes, he receives a pin to wear on the Webelos colors or on his hat. After completing seven adventures, including five required adventures and two elective adventures, a Scout can receive the Webelos badge.
After he has earned the Webelos badge, a Webelos Scout can work on the remaining 18 shared Webelos and Arrow of Light electives until he finishes fourth grade (or turns 11 years old). He can choose elective adventures that may show him new hobbies and teach him skills that will be useful during his Boy Scout years. When he completes an elective adventure, he receives an additional adventure pin to wear on the Webelos colors or on his hat.
The Bear rank is for boys who have finished second grade (or who are 9 years old). To earn the Bear badge, a boy must complete six required adventures and one elective adventure. His parent or guardian and den leader approves each requirement by signing his book, and the boy receives an adventure loop for each adventure. When the boy has met all requirements, the Bear badge is presented to his parent or guardian at the next pack meeting. During an impressive ceremony, the parent or guardian then presents the badge to the boy.
After he has earned the Bear badge, a Bear Scout can work on the remaining 12 Bear electives until he finishes third grade (or turn 10 years old). He can choose elective adventures that may show him new hobbies and teach him skills that will be useful during his Boy Scout years. When he completes an elective adventure, he receives an additional adventure loop to wear on his belt.
