The Meaning of the Webelos Badge

The Webelos badge has a Webelos emblem on it, which contains a blue W, the word Webelos, and a small Scout badge at the bottom. It means you are on the Webelos trail that leads from Cub Scouting to Boy Scouting.

The Parts of Your Uniform

Webelos Scouts may wear either the blue uniform they word as Cub Scouts or the tan shirt and olive green trousers they win wear as Boy Scouts. You and your family decide which one you will wear. With either basic uniform, Webelos Scouts wear the Webelos cap, Webelos neckerchief, and Webelos neckerchief slide.

When to Wear the Uniform
