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, but we are here to assist however we can.

We provide the following forms of support:

 Den Chiefs
A Den Chief is a Boy Scout who is assigned to a particular Cub Den to assist the adult Den Leader.
The Den Chief attends the Den meetings, helps to design and carry out activities, and provides
general assistance to the Cubs. Den Chiefs are trained by 701, then assigned with the input of the
Cubmaster and Den Leader(s).

Webelos Scout Events
Each year, Troop 701 extends exclusive invitations to Webelos / Arrow of Light scouts. These include hosting them at existing T701 meetings, camps, and events, as well as organizing special Webelos-only events. These can be used to fulfill the Scouting Adventure requirements, or just to introduce Webelos Cubs to the much wider world of Boy Scouts. The Webelos Events flyer has a list of these events for the current year.

Troop 701 can assist with camping and other scout equipment as availability permits.  Please 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.  The Cub Pack Services flyer has a list of some of the standard services we provide, but feel free to reach out to us if you have additional needs. Please contact us well in
advance of planned events, so that we can work with you to arrange a schedule.

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.

Crossover and Registration with Troop 701
The Arrow of Light year is when boys make the decision about where they will continue their
Scouting journey, with most crossing over around mid-February. If your scout has decided that
Troop 701 is the right fit for him, the Registration flyer below has the information you will need to
get that process started.

For assistance with your Webelos Den please contact:
