Webelos to Scout Transition

It is our hope for every Webelos Scout to successfully transition to Boy Scouts.

Troop 701 has a long tradition of great collaboration with local Webelos Dens and Cub Scout Units.  As Webelos begin their final year, it is important to expose the Webelos scouts to Boys Scouts across multiple activities.  The Arrow of Light requirements has some of this built in.

We provide the following forms of support:

 Den Chiefs
A boy scout is assigned to a den for an entire scouting year. He is a mentor to the scouts and a great help to the adult leaders.

Troop 701 can assist with camping and other scout equipment as availability permits. Contact us well in advance of your event to inquire about this program.

Program Assistance
Our scouts and adult leaders can come to your den meeting, pack meeting or special event and help with programming. We have, in the past, assisted units with first aid, knot ting, camping skills, science activities, fishing events, pinewood derby, and many others. Please contact us early to discuss your needs.

Scoutmaster Conference – Please Schedule With Us

We are happy to come to a meeting or schedule scoutmaster conferences with your scouts and parents. Please contact us to make arrangements.

For assistance with your Webelos Den please contact:
