Webelos to Scouts BSA
Join a Scout Troop
A Webelos Scout who has earned the Arrow of Light (or who is 11 years old, or who has completed the fifth grade) may join a Scout troop.

A youth should visit the troop at least once before joining.
Parents and Scouts should review the requirements for Scout Rank, including the pamphlet “How to Protect Your Children from Child Abuse: A Parent’s Guide” (which can be found in the Scouts BSA Handbook).
It’s common for Webelos to transition to a Scout troop at the end of their school year. One of the first activities that summer will be participating in a week’s worth of camping at Scout Camp.
