The Arrow of Light Adventure (getting started)


To earn the rank of Arrow of Light, the scout will need a Webelos Handbook to begin working on the Arrow of Light Adventure. Below is an outline of the material covered in the handbook. 

Note: Some of these activities are done at home and signed off by the parent after the boy has completed the task. The handbook should be shown to the Patrol Leader - who records and tracks his progress.

Note: There are no performance requirements for completing tasks. Simply participating and doing one's best in an activity constitutes completion.

Note to Parents
  1. Your Den Leader will track the Den Activities and the "Go-and-See" for each of the five categories
  2. You should use the Scout Handbook to especially track each of the Family Adventures. There are places to "Sign Off" on each activity in the handbook.
  3. So, use your handbook to track each of the family adventures (among others) your scout completes.
  4. Start a Scout Folder to store papers and projects as your scout completes them.
  5. Bring the Handbook (and folder) to a Den meeting to have your family activities recorded by the Den Leader.
