Webelos Badge Requirements The 18-month Webelos Scout Program is for boys who have completed third grade or are age 10 but have not yet completed fifth grade or reached age 11 1/2. Pronounced "WEE-buh-los", the word "Webelos" means WE'll BE LOyal Scouts. After earning the Bobcat badge, a boy may earn the Webelos Badge and Arrow of Light Award.

It was thought that this would keep the interest of the older boys and smooth the transition into Boy Scouts. They utilized the newly published Lion-Webelos handbook. In 1967, the Lion rank was eliminated and was replaced with the Webelos rank, which retained the "Arrow of Light"-style badge design of the former Webelos Award and consisted of a new set of achievements and experiences to better prepare older boys for Boy Scouting. The Webelos colors and activity badges were also introduced at this time, originally numbering 15. Between 1967 and 1972, the Cub Scout uniform only displayed two diamond shaped patches, Wolf and Bear, side by side, with the Webelos rank badge on the pocket flap. In late 1971 or early 1972, the old Webelos rank badge was slightly altered and was renamed to the Arrow of Light, with a significant change in the requirements. In 1977, a new diamond-shaped Webelos rank badge was introduced. When the grade-based rank system was phased in in 1986, the age for beginning Tiger Cubs was lowered to First grade, and Webelos Scouts became a two year program aimed at 4th and 5th graders. Five new activity badges were added to the Webelos Scout Book in 1987, and the two-year Webelos Scout program became official in 1988. In 2001, the current oval Webelos rank badge was introduced. This badge may be worn either on the blue uniform in place of the rank badge diamond, or on the tan uniform like a Boy Scout rank badge.
