Special Notes for 5th Graders

  • Scouts in 5th grade will complete the second portion of the Webelos program (which begins in 4th grade), known as “Arrow of Light”.
  • Yes, Scouts may begin their Scouting experience in 5th grade. 
  • The focus of Arrow of Light is to prepare these Scouts to switch over to a Scouts BSA Troop, which continues the Scouting program for grades 6 – 12.
  • These Scouts will “crossover” to their new Scouting units (Troops) in early March 2023, and will not continue with Pack 057 at that point.
    • At this point, Scouts will be requested to pay any unit membership dues for the Troop they have joined (to fund meeting/activity materials, awards, etc.).
      • The BSA membership fees for the 2023 calendar year and the $25 Joining Fee will not be recollected, only the dues that go directly to the new unit.
        • The dues collected by Pack 057 for the 2022-2023 school year will have been exhausted for these Scouts at this point, as their end-of-program awards are accounted for in the amount collected.
      • Pack 057’s feeder unit is Troop 750, which is also chartered and meets out of Covenant Presbyterian Church.
        • At present, Troop 750’s program is for males only, though is enough interest and volunteers become present, this may change.
          • Other Troops with female-only programs exist in the area and can be reviewed/visited prior to March if there is interest.
