Duty to God and You,
a Webelos Required Adventure
The Webelos Den Leader guide says, “A Scout is reverent. He is reverent toward God. He is faithful in his religious duties and respects the convictions of others in matters of custom and religion. The BSA Statement of Religious Principle “maintains that no member can grow into the best kind of citizen without recognizing an obligation to God.” This adventure provides each Webelos Scout an opportunity to learn about and practice his religious faith.
Read on to discover this adventure’s requirements and creative ways to complete them!
