As a self-professed Scout literature enthusiast I must disagree with Mike. I
refer you to "The Language of Scouting" which states:
WEBELOS SCOUT. (Pronounced "Wee-buh-los.") The word "Webelos" (means WE'll
BE LOyal Scouts) should always be used as a modifier, never as a noun.
This is a great little guide (64 pages) that is invaluable to anyone that does
any writing about Boy Scouts. With definitions and pronounciations, it is a
veritable encyclopedia of Scouting. I found terms that I had never heard of
before such as: jamborette, funoree, Winner's Circle, BAT, etc. And it has
the proper capitalization rules for all this Scout talk.
