MEANING OF THE WEBELOS BADGE
The Webelos badge is like the emblem on your Webelos cap, except that it also has the word "Webelos" and the Scout badge. The emblem is made up of a gold Scout badge with a blue "W," for Webelos, on it. It shows that you are moving from Cub Scouting to Boy Scouting.

THE PARTS OF YOUR UNIFORM
Webelos Scouts may wear either the blue uniform they wore as Cub Scouts or the khaki and tan uniform they will wear as Boy Scouts. You and your family decide which one you will wear.

With either basic uniform, Webelos Scouts wear the Webelos cap, Webelos neckerchief, Webelos neckerchief slide.

 

WHEN TO WEAR THE UNIFORM
Wear your uniform:

  • To all den meetings and pack meetings.

  • On campouts and other den activities.

  • At den service projects.

  • During Anniversary Week in February.

The Webelos uniform may not be worn:

  • When you are involved in any distinctly political activity

  • When you are appearnig on the stage professionally

  • When you are participating in demonstrations not authorized by the Boy Scouts of America.

UNDERSTANDING THE REQUIREMENTS
FOR JOINING BOY SCOUTS

   Working on the Webelos badge helps you find out, about values important to Boy Scouts and things they know, including the Scout Oath and Law. By practicing the Boy Scout salute, sign, and handclasp now for requirement 7, you'll already know them when you become a Boy Scout.

SCOUT OATH OR PROMISE

On my honor I will do my best

To do my duty to God and my country
   and to obey the Scout Law;

To help other people at all times;

To keep myself physically strong,
   mentally awake, and morally straight.


The Meaning of the Scout Oath

   When you say "On my honor," that's like saying "I promise." It also means you are the kind of person who always tries to do what is right and you can be trusted to keep this promise. No one can take your honor from you, but you can throw it away by breaking your promise and doing what you know is wrong.
   Notice that the Scout Oath has three basic parts. Let's look at what they mean.

TO DO MY DUTY TO GOD AND MY COUNTRY
AND TO OBEY THE SCOUT LAW

   Your family and religious leaders teach you to know and serve God. By following these teachings, you do your duty to God.
   Men and women of the past worked to make America great, and many gave their lives for their country. By being a good family member and a good citizen, by working for your country's good and obeying its laws, you do your duty to your country.
   Obeying the Scout Law means living by its 12 points. The Scout Law is explained below.

TO HELP OTHER PEOPLE AT ALL TIMES

   Many people need help. A cheery smile and a helping hand make life easier for others. By doing a Good Turn daily and helping when you're needed, you prove yourself a Scout and do your part to make this a better world.

TO KEEP MYSELF PHYSICALLY STRONG,
MENTALLY AWAKE,
AND MORALLY STRAIGHT

   Keeping yourself physically strong means taking good care of your body. Eat the right foods and build your strength. Staying mentally awake means learn all you can, be curious, and ask questions. Being morally straight means to live your life with honesty, to be clean in your speech and actions, and to be a person of strong character.
