In our pack we do the same thing, with the idea that boys moving from the
Bear den to
1st year Webelos are eligible to attend our Council Webelos Resident
these boys can earn their Aquanaut, Geologist and Outdoorsman pins.
Naturalist. In any case he must still earn Fitness, and complete the 6
or 7 requirements
such as understanding what is meant by the scout oath and law. As long
as the den
leader is satisfied that he has met these requirements, and has showed
the Fitness skills to earn this pin, he should be allowed to receive his
Webelos. I am
a firm believer that awards and advancements should be presented as
quickly as possible
after completion of the requirements.
