WEBELOS to Scout Transition: Packs
The transition for Webelos to a Troop can look daunting, but it isn’t when you know what to expect. The change from parents being with the Scout to letting the scout be part of a Troop that is “Scout-led” is a small leap. Parents, especially, need coaching on what is appropriate and what is not. The purpose of Scouting is to create “Fully-functional Human Beings” who can take care of themselves and handle most situations with persistence and maturity. It is a great base from which kids can learn to lead others and themselves. The aim for joining a troop is to get the Scout to First Class. Eagle is the extra step that shows they embody the Scout Law and Scout Oath.
