The 2022-23 Arrow of Light Den is a veteran group of 8 boys led by Sal Bhimji, Nick Facendola and Shawn Kerr. The den meets every other Thursday evening from 6:15 to 7:30 in the Luther Burbank Cafeteria beginning September 15th. Newcomers may join at any time during the year – they are never ‘behind.’
Arrow of Light is a shortened year, running only to the Blue and Gold Banquet in the spring, whereupon all the boys complete their Cub Scouting career by literally “crossing over” a ceremonial bridge to join Boy Scout Troop 1 Lancaster. The Blue and Gold Banquet is the capstone of the Cub Scout’s career.
Arrow of Light meetings are built around “Adventures,” or units of learning activities. In every activity, boys do their best* to earn Adventure-specific Belt Loops which they can proudly add to their uniform belt as they progress towards earning their Wolf Badge at the conclusion of the year.
Arrow of Light Adventures are:
- Building a Better World (Citizenship)
- Outdoorsman (Camping)
- Duty to God in Action (Non-denominational and personal)
- Scouting Adventure (Preparing to be a Boys Scout)
Arrow of Light Scouts also work with their parent(s) or as a Den to complete one elective Adventure chosen from a group of options.
* Do Your Best is the Cub Scout motto and it applies to boys, leaders and parents alike.
