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:

Cub Scouts

Tiger Cubs 1st graders
Wolf 2nd graders
Bear 3rd graders
Webelos I 4th graders
Webelos II 5th graders

Tiger Cub Big IdeasTiger Cubs
"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 pack meeting.


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.


"Be Prepared"

The Boy Scout advances through the ranks of Scout, Tenderfoot, Second Class, First Class, Star, & Life on his way to Eagle.
