  • Tiger → 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.
