Webelos Crossover

Webelos Crossover or bridging ceremonies are special because it represents a transition from Cub Scouts to Boy Scouts. When a boy has completed the requirements to join the Boy Scouts he then selects a Troop to join and the Scouts in that Troop welcomes him during a crossover ceremony. Troop 412 have four such crossovers expected this Spring. We had two this month and the last one had special significance because the two new Scouts were welcomed by their older brothers. Two Webelos, Evan and Wesley, from Pack 86 chartered by Adam’s Elementary joined our Troop this weekend and during the crossover ceremony their older brothers replaced their Cub Scout neckerchiefs with their new Boy Scout neckerchiefs. Welcome to Troop 412<br>Evan and Wesley ! We hope your path down the Boy Scout trail is rewarding and meaningful. ><br>You can see photos of the<br>Pack 86 crossover on the photo gallery. Don’t miss<br>this video of former Cubmaster Jon Lyster (presently Scoutmaster for Troop 412) leading Pack 86 in an old favorite, Penguins Unite.<br>What are the requirements to join the Boy Scouts? The requirements have changed over the years, but the<br>2012 requirements according to national is <em> “Your son can be a Scout if he has completed the fifth grade and is at least 10 years old or is age 11 or has earned the Arrow of Light Award and is at least 10 years old, but has not reached age 18.” </em> Got that? I think I need a flowchart or something. I think it’s easier to understand if the statement is broken down like this: <br>Your son can be a Scout if….<br>He has completed the fifth grade and is at least 10 years old<br><br>OR<br><br>is age 11<br><br>OR<br><br>has earned the Arrow of Light Award and is at least 10 years old, but has not reached age 18
