Is it true to earn Arrow of Light you no longer need to get your webelo’s badge first? TIA
Yes - it has been that way for several years
This is only true for Cub Scouts in the 5th grade. Cubs in the 4th grade cannot “skip ahead” to AOL rank.
Just wanted to be sure. We had a scout that joined just this fall and wanted to be sure he didn’t have to do all the previous stuff. Thanks.
From the BSA Guide to Advancement section 18.104.22.168:
All youth who are in Webelos dens and are in the fifth grade shall work on Arrow of Light requirements. They can earn the Arrow of Light rank without earning the Webelos rank.
