Garrettsville Cub Scout Pack 62
Webelos I Den



Webelos Years Requirements

The Webelos years are structured differently than the previous Cub years and a bit more like Boy Scouts. We have 20 Activity Badges that can be earned, each of which takes a bit more effort than previous years.

Aquanaut Citizen Artist Forester Craftsman
Athlete Communicator Scholar Geologist Engineer
Fitness Family Member Showman Naturalist Handyman
Sportsman Readyman Traveler Outdoorsman Scientist

Unlike previous years where we spent the year earning the badge near the end, the Webelos rank badge is earned fairly early and further awards mark advancement through more activities.
