There is a special Patch for Scouts that complete all 20 Activity Pins. This will be awarded at the next Pack meeting after completion.

The Webelos Program is an 18 to 20 month program for Fourth and Fifth Grade Boys.  The Webelos Scout program is more challenging to the older boy - in fact, he's now called a Webelos Scout and may wears a different uniform signifying his new status.  His leader is assisted by other den parents.   Also, the Webelos Scout's advancement is approved by his Webelos Den Leader rather than his parent, home achievements are checked by the leader after completion.  After completing an Activity Pins at home the Scout should present his book to his Den leader a state that he as completed an Activity Pins, the Den Leader would them check is book and record the completion..

In both years, they work toward earning Webelos Activity Pins in twenty different areas, arranged in five groups.  The five groups are: Community, Mental Skills, Outdoor, Physical Skills and Technology.  Fourth Grade Boys work toward the Webelos Badge.  After earning the Webelos Badge, boys work toward Compass Point Emblem and Metal COMPASS POINTS   by earning additional Activity Pins.

Fifth Graders, after earning the Webelos Badge, can earn Cub Scouting's highest award - the Arrow of Light.
The Arrow of Light (AOL) is the only Cub Scout badge that can be worn on a Boy Scout uniform. This is usually award at Blue and Gold in Feb. (the other other cub award on a Boy Scout uniform is the Religious reward.

 After receiving the AOL award, he is eligible to become a Boy Scout, or he may join a troop at age 11
(or when he completes the fifth grade).
In Pack 373 our Second Year Webelos Scouts move up to Boy Scouts after Blue and Gold in Feb.

COMPASS POINTS                                                                 Webelos Activity Pin Colors

The Webelos Colors consist of woven green, red, and gold streamers on a blue metal bar with the border and word "Webelos" in gold. It is worn on the right sleeve immediately below the  U.S. flag or Den number. Activity badges are worn on the streamers (in any order). Webelos Colors are an optional uniform item, but should be worn to Pack meeting.  There are no requirements for receiving the Webelos Colors and the are given with the first Activity badge earned.

A Webelos Scout can earn the Compass Point Emblem after he has earned the Webelos Badge. The Webelos Badge requires three Activity Pins. After earning four MORE Activity Pins, for a total of seven, the Webelos Scout can wear the Compass Points Emblem. It is attached to the button on the right pocket flap of the Webelos uniform blue or khaki shirt.
