Cubmaster: The highest rank in Cub Scouting is the Arrow of Light award. There are many steps required to reach this goal. Let's hear from the scouts how it is achieved. First, a Bobcat.
Bobcat: I am a Bobcat, a new member of the pack, no matter what grade I am in. I have just learned the Cub Scout Promise and the Law of the Pack.
Cubmaster: Next, a Tiger.
Tiger: I am a Tiger Scout. During first grade, I searched, discovered, and shared new things with my adult partner and my den.
Cubmaster: Next, a Wolf.
Wolf: I am a Wolf Scout. I have completed lots of achievements in the Wolf scout handbook. I had fun in my den and pack and with my whole family as I earned my Wolf badge during 2nd grade.
Cubmaster: Next, a Bear.
Bear: I am a Bear Scout. I've done dozens of achievements and electives to earn my Bear badge in third grade. My activities were in the areas of God, Country, Family, and Self.
Cubmaster: After Bear, the highest rank in Cub Scouting is the Webelos scout.
Webelos: As a Webelos scout, I have started to set my own path in scouting. I have earned activity pins and I understand more about the ideals of Boy Scouts. I know that Webelos is the last step before becoming a Boy Scout.
Cubmaster: We have ____ Webelos scouts that have earned their Arrow of Light award. Will the following scouts and parents please come forward.
(If there is more than one Arrow of Light Award candidate, he reads other names and asks them to come forward.)
To the parents of each of these Webelos scouts, I take great pride in presenting the Arrow of Light Award for you to present to your son, so that he may wear it on his Webelos scout uniform. The Arrow of Light Award is worn centered on the flap of his left shirt pocket - and later on his Boy Scout uniform.
(Present patches and wait while parents pin them on.)
Cubmaster: These certificates are evidence of the honor you have received.
(Hand out certificates for badges.)
Cubmaster: It has been a pleasure having you fine scouts in this pack. You will soon move on to a Boy Scout troop and we will miss your leadership here, but we wish you the very best as you continue your Boy Scout trail.
You parents will find additional enjoyment and satisfaction as you go on into Boy Scouting with your son and help him with his new adventure.
Pack _____, please stand.
Join me in congratulating these Arrow of Light recipients!
