We'll Be Loyal Scouts
is an acronym for "We'll Be Loyal Scouts." Webelos is a two-year
program in which fourth- and fifth-grade boys have the opportunity to
earn up to 20 activity badges, the Webelos rank badge, and the highest
award in Cub Scouting, the Arrow of Light, as they prepare themselves
to enter a Boy Scout troop.
Den 2 meeting dates
Congratulations to Den 2 Weblos II for moving on to Boy Scout Troop 181!
The purpose of the boys acting as "Denner" is to start giving them some
responsibility and to help them learn how to be a leader by actually leading. The
Denner's two main duties are (1) to lead the den in completing some of
the requirements for one of the activity badges at the den meeting and
(2) to bring a snack for all the scouts to the meeting.
would probably be impossible to complete all of the requirements for
any activity badge in a single meeting. You and your scout should
choose which activity badge you want to work on with the den, then pick
some requirements from that activity badge. You should plan to use
20-40 minutes of meeting time. You should let the den leader know ahead of time
what you plan to do to make sure it hasn't already been covered.
Scouts have 20 activity badges to work on over 2 years. Some of the
requirements are completed with the den, some are completed at home.
The activity badge titles are Aquanaut, Athlete, Fitness, Sportsman,
Artist, Scholar, Showman, Traveler, Citizen, Communicator, Family
Member, Readyman, Craftsman, Engineer, Handyman, Scientist, Forester,
Geologist, Naturalist, and Outdoorsman. As you can see, the activity
badges cover a wide variety of subject areas, and it probably is best to let each scout and his parents pick an area where
their interests and talents lie. These are all listed in detail in the
Webelos Scout handbook.
duties for the Denner include assisting the Den Leader in the opening
ceremony, closing ceremony, and any other games or activities during
At the option of the scout and his parents, the Denner can do any or all of the following if they choose:
you plan to do any or all of these things, you should let the den
leader know ahead of time so the meeting can be planned accordingly.
- Plan a skit for the meeting
- Plan a game to play at the meeting
- Bring several jokes and/or a story to tell
- Lead the den in a song
- Plan the opening and/or closing ceremony
- Plan the whole den meeting
you cannot attend the meeting when you are denner, you should let the
den leader know or arrange with another scout to switch dates.
There is a lot of information on the internet regarding Cub Scout activities. Here are a few:
