Green Advancement Ceremony
Trapper Trails Council
Equipment: 2 small jars or glasses with water; one should
be dyed blue and one dyed yellow, large empty jar or glass,
table, second year service star, Webelos neckerchief
Personnel: Cubmaster, boy advancing and parent
Set-up: On the table the jars of colored water and the empty
jar. The two colors will be poured into the empty jar at a
point in the ceremony. They will create the color green.
(Practice to get the color the way you want it.)
Cubmaster: Would (name) and his parents please
join me at the front of the audience (They come forward.)
(Name), on this table you see the colors of Cub
Scouting. Blue which stands for truth and spirituality,
steadfast loyalty, and the sky above. Gold which stands
for warm sunlight, good cheer, and happiness. Cub Scouts
wear these colors in their uniforms and neckerchiefs as a
Bobcat, Wolf, or Bear. As they grow and learn they
become ready to do more. Tonight you, (name), are
ready to receive these new challenges. We would like to
thank you for the work you have done for our pack as a
Bear and present to you your second year service star.
We now ask that you pour the Gold of Cub Scouting into
this empty jar. Now please add the Blue of Cub Scouting.
You can see that the color that has been created is green.
The Green of Boy Scouting. Webelos is a time to begin
learning about Scouting and to experience the fun and
adventure of Boy Scouts. Your parents will also take on a
slightly different role in helping. (To parents) Where you
have previously signed your son's requirements after he
had done the best you knew he could do, his Webelos
leader will do the signing now. However, you will still need
to know what he is working on and encourage him. Some
of his requirements will require work at home in addition to
den meetings. Don't be afraid to work with him at home
when he needs you. When he finishes a requirement at
home instruct him to report what he did to his leader.
We will now add to your uniform the color of Boy Scouting
by giving you your Webelos neckerchief. (Change scarf.)
