Webelos Badge

4th and 5th Grade boys are Webelos Scouts. The Webelos program is focused on preparing boys for their transition to Boy Scouts while still maintaining a Cub Scout approach. After earning their Bobcat Badge (if they haven't already), Webelos first earn their Webelos badge.

 

Important Note on Webelos Badge(s)


  

Note that two Webelos badges are shown on this page. The first is a diamond-shaped cloth badge that is gold and light blue embroidered on dark blue background with gold trim. It is worn on the left pocket of the blue Cub Scout uniform in the 6 o'clock position, as shown in Insignia Guide. This diamond-shaped patch can still be worn by Webelos that have earned it as part of the four-patch 'diamond.'

The other Webelos badge is an oval-shaped cloth badge, gold and light blue embroidered on khaki background with khaki trim. It is worn centered on the left pocket of the khaki Scout shirt, with no other rank patches.
