The Arrow of Light Den
The Webelos Den is made up of 5th grade boys, all from Lancaster, led by John Stazinski.
Boys 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.
All Cub Scout den meetings are typically built around “Adventures,” or units of learning activities. 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.
This year, eaders will incorporate the high points of each Adventure into the outdoor-only format we have adopted for the duration of the Covid-19 pandemic. Every effort will be made to ensure the boys cover the principle components of the Arrow of Light curriculum, with all participants doing their best* to cover the material while staying safe and united as a community.
* Do Your Best is the Cub Scout motto and it applies to boys, leaders and parents alike.
