Is your Webelos Den looking for an opportunity to perform a service project with a Boy Scout Troop? Troop 761 is responsible for cleaning a section of the W&OD trail and we LOVE to have Webelos dens come along to help. We schedule trail cleanups 4 times a year so if your interested in having your den help out, please contact our webelos coordinator at email@example.com.
Webelos is an acronym meaning "We'll Be Loyal Scouts". According to the Bear Cub Scout Book of 1954, the name originally came from the initial letters of "wolf, bear, lion, Scout", the rank of "Lion Cub Scout" was dropped in 1967.
The next Open House will be held on TBD
Yes, our meetings are open for all interested families to attend. You can get the details on the time and place in our “Troop 761 Events” page.
Absolutely. Refer to the "Joining Information" link in "About Us or More Information Page"
Once a Webelos has satisfied the age requirements for joining (See “Who can join…” next), filled out a new Scout application and paid the fees, he can start attending the meetings, activities, outings, and events. If your son is 11 or has earned his Arrow of Light, he can join right away. He may wear his full Webelos uniform to troop events until his crossover occurs.
When your son joins a troop (by meeting the age requirements, filling out an application and paying the fees), he may attend meetings and events but he is not officially a Boy Scout until he earns the Scout Rank by completing the Joining Requirements. He can complete these requirements very quickly and will receive his Scout Rank to wear on his uniform. Earning the Scout Rank is the first step in advancing through ranks from Tenderfoot all the way to Eagle.
We have set aside a number of camping slots for new Boy Scouts. Please contact the Troop 761 Scoutmaster and Summer Camp Coordinator as soon as possible to get signed up. Here are the e-mail addresses you need.
Any boy that meets the official age requirements may join. They are “Be a boy who is 11 years old, or one who has completed the fifth grade or earned the Arrow of Light Award and is at least 10 years old, but is not yet 18 years old.” So being in Cub Scouts or earning the Arrow of Light award is not required, but earning the Arrow of Light award can enable a boy to join before he turns 11 or finishes fifth grade.
