Welcome to Webelos - Den 5

Den Number 5

4th Grade
       or 9-10 Yrs

Den Leader
        Jim Hudson III
Our Goals  Webelos is a 20 month program for 4th and 5th grade boys to prepare to join a Boy Scout troop while learning outdoor skills and participating in 20 different activity badges. A well-run group of Webelos is a gradual change from being an 'adult-run' den to being a 'boy-run' patrol ready to fit right into an adventurous scouting troop.

Summary The Webelos program has two major milestones - the Webelos rank badge to be earned at the 4th grade level and the Arrow of Light to be earned at the 5th grade. The final part of Webelos is bridging over into a Boy Scout troop selected individually by the scout.

Is your Fourth Grader thinking about Scouts?
Then you probably have some questions...
Email the Den Leader at the link above and leave your phone number.  Den Leader's like to help parents too.

What the Webelos are "Doing"... 
  • Fur, Feathers & Ferns Adventure

    We have an opportunity for the boys to earn their Fur, Feathers & Ferns Adventure in one field trip (with the exception of one requirement where the boys plant seeds in a pot).  Armand Bayou Nature Center offers a course for the boys on select Sunday afternoons.  The cost is $10 per scout and $4 per adult.  If the majority of boys/parents want to go, we will sign up our den(s) to meet this requirement.  If the majority of boys sign up for this trip, we will only cover the planting of a vegetable or herb garden during a regular den meeting. Please note, that one of the requirements is to visit a zoo, nature center, rescue center, etc.

    Armand Bayou Nature Center is far and siblings are NOT allowed.  Those are the drawbacks.  

    If you are interested in attending on Sunday, December 18 from 2 pm to 4 pm, please sign up on the attached google doc.

    Here is an excerpt from ABNC’s webpage:
