     Webelos Badge-faith
        requirement
Reasons Why I chose to have my den focus
on earning the religious emblem of their faith
(d) rather than alternate requirement (e):
– Its easier to organize. There are outside
  resources to help your den parents
– you don’t sign off on requirements, the Scout’s
  religious leader does. Alternate (e) requires the
  Den leader’s signoff and some participation.
– It’s the only award beside Arrow of Light the Scout
  can carry over to Boy Scouts
