Webelos Adventure Requirements: Faith in Action

This is a preview of one of the new Cub Scout requirements which will go into effect in the 2015-2016 program year. See the BSA Program Updates page for complete information.

Faith In Action  is one of the Webelos CORE Adventure Requirements.  In the current Webelos Cub Scout program, it is similar to requirement 8 for the Webelos badge.   For this adventure, Webelos either earn the religious emblem of their faith or plan and take part in an interfaith service . This type of service used to be called a Scouts’ Own service.

Note that this is different than the Arrow of Light Faith in Action adventure.

The requirement for this adventure are shown below. Upon completion of this adventure, Webelos will receive a pin.

    Not my favorite of the new adventures, it’s very weak. That being said, I’ve seen a lot of Webelos dens completely ignore requirement 8 because it’s tricky to navigate.

    I accept that Duty to God must be defined by the family, but this adventure should should include a service element. Regardless of whether service to fellow human beings is a requirement of your faith, nearly all faiths recognize the importance of service.
