Webelos II Den of Cub Scouts
Arrow of Light Ceremony

The Arrow Of Light is the highest and last rank in Cub Scouting, and is the only badge of Cub Scouting rank that may be worn on the Boy Scout uniform. It is an achievement many of the boys aspire to after becoming a Tiger scout.
The Webelos II den of Cub Scouts is completing their Cub Scout journey this month. They will receive their Arrow of Light award, the highest in Cub Scouting. Achieving the Arrow of Light, these boys feel they are living up to the motto: “Do Your Best!” 

The Arrow of Light ceremony will take place at 6:00 p.m. on February 20th in the A&A Center. The ceremony will be conducted by Jim Sawgrass. All Park Maitland families are welcome.
