Arrow of Light | A Fifth Grade Adventure
Welcome to AOL (Arrow of Light) Scouts! Our resources are designed to help scouts complete ranks and electives with their families and dens.
The AOL Program is composed of AOL | Elective Adventures and AOL | Rank Adventures. AOL Rank Adventures are required for the completion of the AOL program. Additionally, a scout must complete one Elective. Fortunately, there are so many fun ones to choose from.
An AOL is entering Fifth Grade in the fall and must be a member of their Webelos den for at least six months.
RESOURCES FOR ARROW OF LIGHT
Below you will find resources to complete all of the rank adventures and many of the elective adventures. Moreover, you can find guidance in the AOL Cub Scout Handbook (it is the same one as Webelos) and a plethora of ideas and activities on Pinterest.
Additionally, all ranks require the completion of the Bobcat Rank before beginning. This only needs to be done once but is first no matter where your scout is starting (except Lion). Further, each year scouts must complete some personal protection and Internet safety and etiquette exercises.
- Bobcat Rank (To be completed once by all new scouts, disregard if you have this rank)
- With a parent or guardian, complete the exercises in the pamphlet entitled How to Protect Your Children From Child Abuse: A Parent’s Guide
- View the Protect Yourself Rules for your rank (All scouts renew this annually)
