The Arrow of Light is the highest rank a Cub Scout can earn. It is also the only Cub Scout badge that can be worn on the Boy Scout uniform.
The Arrow of Light requirements are intended to help prepare the Webelos to become Boy Scouts. The requirements familiarize the boys with the Boy Scout Oath and Law and give them an opportunity to learn more about the troop.
It is quite an honor for a young man to earn the Arrow of Light rank. Many packs make or purchase plaques or ceremonial arrows for the boys. Another way to congratulate them is with a certificate that can be purchased from Scout Stuff or your local Scout Shop. This certificate is signed by the Chief Executive Scout which, to quote a fellow Scouter, “underscores the importance of the award over any rank award previously earned as a Cub Scout.”
Because some of you may want or need a printable option, I had this free printable Arrow of Light certificate template created to share with you. You can print the certificate and write the names on there by hand, or you can type the names on the certificate and then print it.
When you click on the file, it may open in a new tab in your browser. If it does, you’ll want to download it and open it with Adobe Reader. If you want to fill in the names before you print it, click on any of the 3 name lines and type the names directly into certificate.
Feel free to email me at sherry@CubScoutIdeas.com if you have any questions. I hope your boys love their certificates!
Yours in Scouting,
