Boys in the fourth and fifth grades become Webelos Scouts. Webelos
Scouts do more advanced activities to get ready to graduate into Boy
Webelos have the option of wearing the blue uniform from Bears or advancing to the tan uniform.
Webelos I & II (Fourth & Fifth Graders)
is a 20 month program for 4th and 5th grade boys to prepare to join a
Boy Scout troop while learning outdoors skills and participating in 20
different activity badges. A well-run group of Webelos is a gradual
change from being an 'adult-run' den to being a 'boy-run' patrol ready
to fit right into an adventurous scouting troop. This migration requires
the parents and den leaders to give the scouts more and more control,
decision-making power, and responsibility as they progress in skills,
abilities, and maturity. A good program also provides the scouts with
many opportunities to grow in the Webelos Virtues.
