Webelos Legacy Project
This Project is meant for Webelos scouts.
Webelos Scouts show their appreciation for the fun, adventure, and learning of Cub Scouting. They have created a tradition within the pack for the outgoing group of Webelos to leave a legacy to the Pack.
The legacy is a gift or service that benefits the Pack as a whole.
One year, the Webelos raised funds and purchased a dutch oven for the Pack. They raised the money by holding a bake sale in conjunction with the Pack's Pinewood Derby.
At the Pack's Blue Gold dinner, a Webelos scout representing the den presents the legacy and challenges the next year's den to leave their mark in their last year of Cub Scouts.
The scouts gain experience in planning and carrying out a project as will soon be required for Boy Scout advancement. The Pack benefits by receiving the gift or service provided by the scouts without expenditures from limited financial and manpower budgets.
