Arrow of Light Ceremony - March 25!

posted Mar 21, 2018, 12:30 PM by Admin Pack958

This Sunday is our Arrow of Light Ceremony at Bay Area Park where all of our graduating Webelos II scouts will be bridging over to their chosen Boy Scout Troops.  This is a very special event where we celebrate the accomplishments of these boys as they start their next adventure in scouting, so I encourage you to attend.  Near the end of the ceremony each scout will cross the bridge and be welcomed into their new Boy Scout Troop by representatives from their troop, followed by a reception with snacks/drinks at the Scout Hut.

Webelos I and Bear dens will attend as you have a role in the ceremony.  Wolf and Tiger scouts are welcome to attend as well but not required, we just ask that parents help keep your scouts sitting still and respectful of the ceremony.  All scouts wear class A uniform.

Location:  Bay Area Park at 7500 Bay Area Blvd.  We will meet at the fire pit area next to the Scout Hut on the left side of the main road after you enter.  Map:

Time:  Ceremony starts at 5:00pm, some of you will need to arrive early to help prepare (see below).  Please arrive at your prescribed time to allow us to start on time.

·         The graduating Webelos II scouts (Toxic Viper Patrol) should arrive by 4:00pm to start setting up the ceremony area with Class A uniforms.  After setup, be ready for a quick walk through of the ceremony by 4:30pm.  Scouts should know the Boy Scout Law, the Boy Scout Oath and how to tie a square knot.  All graduating scouts should have a length of rope looped onto their belts for the rope circle later in the ceremony (supplied by your den leaders).

·        The Webelos I scouts (Fierce Lion Patrol) should arrive by 4:30pm to set up the snacks for the reception.

·         The greeting den (Bear Den) should arrive by 4:45pm and be ready to hand out programs to the arrive guests.  Everyone else plan to arrive by 5:00pm.  Please bring your own camping chairs for seating.
