Advancement

The Cub Scout advancement plan encourages young boys through recognition. The boys are rewarded by earning badges or pins as they complete various tasks. These tasks are structured as fun activities completed with their fellow scouts under the guidance of their den leader or at home with the scout's adult family members.

The Tiger Cub program is for boys who are in the first grade (or are age 7). Boys have fun with a purpose while becoming familiar with the Pack. In our Pack, the monthly den meetings/outings are rotated among the Tiger Cub families.

These monthly gatherings have themes related to the five Tiger Cub achievements: Making My Family Special, Where I Live, Keeping Myself Healthy and Safe, How I Tell It, and Let's Go Outdoors.


The Bobcat badge is provided as an introduction to scouting and is required of all boys who join Cub Scouting, regardless of what year they join. There are eight steps to earning this rank, which are completed by the scout with his family and den.


The Wolf program is for boys who have completed first grade (or are age 8). The Wolf rank is for boys entering the second grade or who are seven years of age.

Once they have completed the Bobcat requirements, they can began to work towards their Wolf badge. Earning this rank entails completing 12 achievements consisting of simple mental and physical skills.


The Bear rank is for boys who are entering third grade or who are nine years of age. There are 24 Bear achievements of which 12 must be earned to obtain the Bear badge. These requirements are slightly more challenging than those for Wolf rank.

Boys that join the Pack as a Bear Scout must first earn their Bobcat Badge.


The Webelos program is for boys entering fourth grade or who are ten years of age. This program spans over two years, leading to a transition into Boy Scouts towards the end of the second year. The boys complete achievements as outlined in the Webelos book, and are rewarded with activity pins. After three pins, they earn the Webelos badge, after 7 pins, they earn the Compass badge.

Boys that join the Pack as a Webelos Scout must first earn their Bobcat Badge.

With at least 8 pins and some additional requirements, the boy will earn the highest of the Cub Scout awards, the Arrow of Light. At this point they are ready to "cross over" into the Boy Scouting program.
