Cub Scouts is part of the larger national
organization of Boy Scouts of America. The order of ranks that can
be earned if a boy joins at the earliest age possible is as follows:
"Search, Discover, Share"
The Tiger Cub program is designed to introduce first
grade boys and their adult partners to Cub Scouting. Each boy/adult
pair selects a theme from one of 17 "Big Ideas." They
serve as hosts for a month, during which one meeting is usually held
in the home and a second gathering involves a field trip. The Tiger
Cub and his family are encouraged to attend the monthly Cub Scout
This is the very first rank that EVERY boy MUST earn
when entering Cub Scouts. The purpose is to instill in the new Cub
Scout, the 8 "tracks" or basic tenets of Cub Scouting.
Wolf cubs must complete 12 tracks to earn the Wolf
badge. During their work at home and in the den, they earn beads as
evidence that they are "progressing toward rank." Once
they earn the Wolf badge, they can earn arrow point badges.
Like Wolves, Bears too must complete 12 tracks, but
they can select from a total of 24. These achievements are
categorized into God, Country, Family and Self sections. They
receive "progress toward rank" beads and can earn arrow
points once they are awarded the Bear badge.
These older Cub Scouts prepare for the transition
into Boy Scouts. They earn activity badge pins in up to 20 activity
areas that introduce them to a myriad of career possibilities. More
independence is evidenced as the boys complete most of their
activities in the den setting. Besides the Webelos badge and
activity pins, these boys strive to earn the Arrow of Light badge,
Cub Scouting's highest honor.

Tenderfoot, Second Class, First Class, Star, & Life on his way
