Cub Scouting is a program of the Boy Scouts of America. It is available to boys under the age of 11 who meet any of the following qualifications:

  • boys who are 7, 8, 9, and 10 years old
OR
  • boys in the first through fifth grade and are not registered in a Boy Scout troop.

The Tiger Cub program for first graders and their adult partners emphasizes shared leadership, learning about the community, and family understanding. The Wolf and Bear Cub activities for second and third graders emphasize character development, citizenship training, and personal fitness. Webelos Scouts (fourth and fifth graders) participate in more advanced activities that begin to prepare them to become Boy Scouts.

Cub Scouts earn the Bobcat badge and then progress towards advancement starting at their age-appropriate den rank.

  • Bobcat badge → The first rank earned by every boy in Cub Scouting.
  • Tiger Cub → A boy who is in the first grade (or is 7 years old) and registered, with his adult partner, as a member of a Tiger Cub den. Tiger Handbook
  • Wolf → The rank designed for a second-grade or 8-year-old Cub Scout. Wolf Handbook
  • Bear → The rank designed for a Cub Scout in the third grade (or 9 years old). Bear Handbook
  • Webelos Scout → (Pronounced WEE-buh-los.) A Cub Scout who has completed the third grade or is age 10 but has not yet completed fifth grade or reached age 11 1/2. The word "Webelos" (means WE'll BE LOyal Scouts) should always be used as a modifier, never as a noun. Webelos Handbook
  • Arrow of Light Award - The highest rank in Cub Scouting and the only Cub Scout badge that may be worn on the Boy Scout uniform.
