From Pack to Troop Ceremony
This Ceremony is meant for Webelos scouts.
This ceremony is for a Webelos scout moving on to Boy Scouts ahead of the rest of his den.
Cubmaster: Friends and parents, Webelos Scout [Name] is ready to cross over into the Boy Scout troop. [Name], you have looked forward to this for 4 years. You have been a good Cub Scout, and a good Webelos Scout, and we know you will be a good Boy Scout. We are all proud of you.
Denner: [Name], the members of Den [number] are happy to see you continue on into the Boy Scout troop. We don't feel bad about your leaving because soon we will all be Boy Scouts, maybe even in the same patrol. (The denner leads the den in a yell for the departing Webelos Scout.)
Den Chief: There are two things, [Name]. First, I want to tell you that I have enjoyed my association with you in Den [number], and second, I'm glad to welcome you to Troop [number], where we will be able to keep on doing things together.
Cubmaster: Scoutmaster [Name], we now present to you and Troop [Number] Webelos Scout [Name], who is eager to be a Boy Scout. We recommend him highly. He has been a fine member of our pack.
Scoutmaster: [Name], on behalf of Troop [number], I want to welcome you into the great Scouting brotherhood. The scouts tell me that you have been asked to join the [name] Patrol, so I would like to have you meet [name], who will be your patrol leader.
(If this is not known, have the Senior Patrol Leader welcome him to the troop.)
Patrol Leader: I'm glad to welcome another scout from Pack [number] into our troop. We hope there will soon be more of you. We are having a meeting of our patrol [day, time, and place], and we would like to have you attend.
Cubmaster: (Asks the parents of the Webelos Scout to come forward.) Friends, we of the pack wish to congratulate you. You have done much to keep your son interested and happy in Cub Scouting, and we appreciate it. I would like to have you meet the Scoutmaster. (Introduces the Scoutmaster to the parents. The pack forms a circle around the Cubmaster, Scoutmaster, and Webelos scout.)
In Boy Scouts, you will have the Scout Oath and Law to guide you, but as you leave us to follow the trail through Scouting, we would like you to renew with us the Cub Scout Promise. (The whole group repeats the promise. The circle then breaks to let the Scoutmaster, patrol leader, and Webelos scout out, and re-closes around the Cubmaster. The group faces the Webelos scout and gives the Cub Scout salute. The entire group shouts, "Do Your Best!")
