Webelos to Boy Scouts Transition Hints
Read Hints for Webelos Leader or Hints for Scoutmaster
This is a list of points for a Webelos den leader to keep in mind to ensure a successful transition of scouts into a Boy Scout troop. The preparation begins before the Webelos program starts, but no matter where in the program you currently are, you can make changes to improve now.
As a Scoutmaster of a troop, the ongoing success of the troop is directly dependent on new boys joining the group. Most boys join by crossing over from a Webelos den so a good relationship with the packs in your area is important. The end of the Webelos program is also a time when many scouts drop out of scouting because they saw it as an end rather than a beginning.
Many troops have a 'Webelos Transition Chairman' or 'Recruiting Chairman' that handles much of the tasks listed here.
