For the first year of Webelos, the scouts need to complete 5 specific requirements and 2 electives, after which they will earn the Webelos badge at the end of the year. To accomplish this, the den will have bi-monthly meetings (every other Thursday) at the First Congregational Church in Braintree, and usually 1 outing per month. The group will work together to learn the skills and enjoy the activities that will get them to the next rank in scouting, the Arrow of Light. Most of all, the boys will hopefully have fun.


So, follow along and see how the year progresses!
