Webelos II


For boys in 5th grade of 11 years old

During the second year of the Webelos program, after earning the Webelos badge, Webelos Scouts work toward the requirements for highest rank in Cub Scouting, the Arrow of Light Award. Earning this rank prepares a Webelos Scout to become a Boy Scout. Webelos Scouts who have earned the Arrow of Light Award have also completed all requirements for the Boy Scout badge.

This award is the only Cub Scout badge that can be worn on the Boy Scout uniform when a boy graduates into a troop. Adult leaders who earned the Arrow of Light Award when they were young may also show their achievement by wearing a special square knot on their adult uniform.
