The first rank, Bobcat, is for all boys
who join Cub Scouting -- regardless of rank (from Tiger to Webelos).
After they earn this, they move on to earn their grade-level rank
Tiger Cubs is a simple and fun program
for first-grade boys and their families. The Tiger Cub program introduces
boys and their adult partners to the excitement of Cub Scouting as
they "Search, Discover, and Share" together. The Tiger Cub
program is conducted on two levels. First, the Tiger Cub and his adult
partner meet in the home to conduct activities for the whole family.
Second, the Tiger Cub and his adult partner meet weekly with other
Tiger Cubs and adult partners in the den, using the planned "big
idea" (or theme) for their activity during one of the meetings.
The Wolf program is for boys who are in
second grade (or age 8). To earn the Wolf badge, a boy must pass twelve
achievements involving simple physical and mental skills.
The Bear rank is for boys who are in third
grade (or age 9). There are twenty-four Bear achievements in four
different categories. The Cub Scout must complete twelve of these
to earn the Bear badge. These requirements are somewhat more difficult
and challenging than those for Wolf rank.
This program is for boys who are in
fourth and fifth grade (or age 10). A boy may begin working on the
Webelos badge as soon as he joins a Webelos den. This is the first
step in his transition from the Webelos den to the Boy Scout troop.
As he completes the requirements found in the Webelos Scout Book,
he will work on activity badges, attend meetings led by adults, and
become familiar with the Boy Scout requirements - all leading to the
Arrow of Light Award.
Arrow of Light
The highest rank in Cub Scouting is the Arrow of Light
Award. Earning this rank prepares a Webelos Scout to become a Boy
Scout. Webelos Scouts who have earned the Arrow of Light Award have
also completed all requirements for the Boy Scout badge. This award
is the only Cub Scout badge that can be worn on the Boy Scout uniform
when a boy graduates into a troop. Adult leaders who earned the Arrow
of Light Award when they were young may also show their achievement
by wearing a special square knot on their adult uniform.
(name), promise to do my best,
To do my duty to God and my country,
To help other people, and
To obey the Law of the Pack.
Cub Scout Motto
Law of the Pack
Cub Scout follows Akela.
The Cub Scout helps the pack go.
The pack helps the Cub Scout grow.
The Cub Scout gives goodwill.
The Cub Scout colors are blue and gold. The blue
stands for truth and spirituality, steadfast loyalty, and the sky
above. The gold stands for warm sunlight,
good cheer, and happiness. Together, they symbolize what Cub Scouting
is all about.
