How it Works
The Webelos badge is the fifth rank in Cub Scouting (coming after Tiger Cub, Bobcat, Wold, and Bear.) You can start on it as soon as you join a Webelos den, and have earned the Bobcat badge. To earn the Webelos badge you must be active in your den for at least 3 months and complete the requirements. You'll be proud to earn the Webelos rank and receive your badge at a pack meeting.
One of the differences between Webelos and younger Cub Scouts is that the Webelos Den Leader signs off the completed activities of a Webelos Scout.
Note that two Webelos badges are shown on this page. The first is a diamond-shaped cloth badge that is gold and light blue embroidered on dark blue background with gold trim. It is worn on the left pocket of the blue Cub Scout uniform in the 6 o'clock position, as shown in Insignia Guide. This diamond-shaped patch can still be worn by Webelos that have earned it as part of the four-patch 'diamond.'
The other Webelos badge is an oval-shaped cloth badge, gold and light blue embroidered on khaki background with khaki trim. It is worn centered on the left pocket of the khaki Scout shirt, with no other rank patches, as shown in Insignia Guide.
