Are you a Webelos Den Leader or a Boy Scout leader looking for resources to help boys transition from Cub Scouting to Boy Scouting?
Your first stop is this Webelos to Scout Planning Calendar (W2S Planning Calendar.PDF.) This will give you some ideas on what tasks to consider doing and when they can be done. Feel free to adjust your timing to the needs of your den / troop. The objective is to cross-over Arrow of Light scouts in the spring so they can acclimate to the troop and have a great time at summer camp.
