Webelos covers the fourth and fifth grades. This is the transition time towards Boy Scouts.
There are many achievements that are divided into 5 areas:
- Physical Skills (Aquanaut, Athlete, Fitness and Sportsman)
- Mental SKills (Artist, Scholar, Showman, and Traveler)
- Community (Citizen, Communicator, Family Member and Readyman)
- Technology (Craftsman, Engineer, Handyman and Scientist)
- Outdoor (Forester, Geologist, Naturalist and Outdoorsman).
(Note that these activities are primarily done in the Den
meetings and signed off by the Webelos Leader after
the boy has completed each task. Some activities will
be assigned by the Webelos Leader to be done at home).
(If the Cub Scout has not previously earned the Bobcat Badge, it must be earned first). See Advancement section for the requirements for this badge.
To earn the Webelos rank a Webelos Scout must complete 3 activity badges:
- (one must be Fitness, Citizen 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 for this rank’s requirements).
To promote uniform wearing, bringing books to Den meetings and attendance I have a Bead roll form under Sundry that you just check off the boxes.

The information in this Activity Badge Outline has come from many sources, including the Internet, BALOO’s BUGLE, the Pow Wow books listed on MacScouter, and some items created especially for this activity by me, often following the requirements of the Webelos Scout book.
Where possible, I have tried to give credit to the source of the material. However, often the same material appears on numerous sites or in numerous sources. My name only appears on worksheets or activities that I developed. If no reference or credit appears on an item, it simply means that it is available from multiple sources or that the source is unknown. I am in no way attempting to take credit for the fine work performed by other Scouters. I have only tried to assemble the available information that I have collected over the years, and supplement it with my own work when the Webelos requirements changed or when a specific need was not met by the available resources. Other Scouters have gone before me in this endeavor, such as Barb Stephens and R. Gary Hendra, and to them I offer my thanks.
Please use this information in the spirit that it was intended – to make the job of the Webelos Leader easier by providing a format to follow with the necessary resources to fulfill the requirements of the Activity Badge, while providing the Scouts with fun and interesting activities!
