The Webelos Den, Den 1, is comprised of Scouts who are in the fourth grade or are at least 9 years old. The Webelos program is designed to prepare Cub Scouts to join a Scouts BSA Troop in February of their fifth grade year. This gives time for new Scouts to get familiar with the Troop and time to prepare for summer camp.

Mondays at 6:30pm in the Atrium Room or on the back patio (except for pack meeting dates).
Cub Scouts earn adventures that are specific to their grade and rank. A number of adventures must be completed to earn the badge of rank for each grade level. Adventures may be earned in any order. Completion of adventures is how the aims of character, citizenship, leadership, and personal fitness are developed.

The BSA Statement of Religious Principle “maintains that no member can grow into the best kind of citizen without recognizing an obligation to God.” This adventure provides each Webelos Scout an opportunity to learn about and practice his religious faith.

Many things inspire artists to create their work. People, nature, feelings, textures (how things feel), colors—almost everything can be an inspiration! In this adventure, Webelos Scouts will have the opportunity to find what inspires them by visiting an art museum or exhibit and creating their own pieces from any materials they choose.
Aware and Care
Everyone has challenges—and understanding the challenges of others leads to acceptance. In this adventure, Webelos Scouts will learn firsthand how people live with disabilities that affect their sight, hearing, dexterity, and mobility; with this new understanding, they can help educate their peers and prevent the hurtful exclusion of others.
This adventure can assist Webelos Scouts as they develop building and motor skills, tool knowledge, and good safety practices. It also helps them gain appreciation for several forms of craftsmanship.
Build My Own Hero

Boys will meet local heroes and learn about everyday heroism around the world. Each Scout will also imagine his own superhero and create a story of how that hero helps others.
Survival skills are essential for anyone who might ever become lost in the wilderness—in a jungle, on a desert island, or, yes, during a Scout hike or campout! This adventure teaches several of those skills to Webelos Scouts, preparing them to deal with emergencies in an outdoor environment.
Through this adventure, Webelos Scouts will see the relevancy of earth science and how it impacts their daily lives. They will begin to understand the use of rocks and minerals in everyday items. Their investigations will give them an understanding of geological events and they will have the opportunity to learn about geological features in their own state.
This adventure will provide a fun way to learn about science and mathematics technologies and introduce Scouts to career options in engineering.
This adventure will help Scouts develop their motor skills and increase their knowledge of tools and safety procedures. Each boy will gain the confidence he needs to react properly and help out if certain home or auto repairs are needed.

Listen! There is noise all around you. What changes noise into music? What is the difference? In this adventure, Webelos Scouts will discover ways to make and play music that sounds good to them.
Webelos Scouts will use old and new media in this adventure to bring stories to life as movies. Lights! Camera! Action!
There are many different kinds of families, related by birth, marriage, or adoption. Through the Project Family adventure, Webelos Scouts will experience new ways of taking part in family life and showing their family members that they love and care for them.
Sports are all about honesty, respect, fair play, and being physically fit. Playing a sport will build a Webelos Scout’s body and improve his skills—and learning to play more than one sport will help develop a lifelong habit of physical activity.
