The next step on the advancement trail is:
To earn the Webelos rank a Webelos Scout must complete 3 activity badges (one must
be Fitness and Citizen activity badges and 1 other
activity badge from a different activity group.
The next patch is the Compass Point Emblem which is awarded after the Webelos badge and 4 additional activity badges for a total of 7 activity badges now earned.
After the scout has earned the Compass Point
Emblem they can earn metal
“compass points" for each additional 4 activity badges earned for a total of 3 metal “compasspoints”.
Webelos Scouts must earn a total of 19 out of the total of 20 possible activity
badges — to receive all their metal "compass" points.
The highest rank in Cub Scouting is the Arrow of Light. (See page 63 in the Webelos book for this rank’s requirements).
The Webelos Rank Requirements (188KB) and the Webelos Advancement worksheet in color (26KB) or Webelos Advancement worksheet in B & W (25KB) are similar to the other ranks but I have broken them down into areas that are color-coded so that you can easily see what group you are working on at the moment and which group you need to work on next. I found that by overlapping 2 different groups the scouts could work on something that they were interested in while at the same time learn about something they didn't know a lot about.
