Our Goals  The Arrow of Light is for 5th graders to prepare to join a Boy Scout troop while learning outdoor skills and participating in different adventures. A well-run Arrow of Light Den 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.

Summary 

Arrow Scouts is for 5th graders preparing to join a Boy Scout troop while learning outdoors skills and participating in many adventures. A well-run group of Arrow Scouts is a change from being an 'adult-run' den to being a 'scout-run' patrol ready to fit right into an adventurous Boy Scout 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. Additionally, Arrow Scouts camp regularly and work with a Boy Scout Troop to prepare to become a Boy Scout by March of their 5th Grade year. Additionally, the Arrow of Light Rank is the only Cub Scout Rank that can be worn on the Boy Scout uniform

The Webelos program has two major milestones - the Webelos rank badge to be earned at the 4th grade level and the Arrow of Light to be earned at the 5th grade. The final part of Webelos is bridging over into a Boy Scout troop selected individually by the scout.
