Tiger Cubs is an exciting introduction to the scouting program for first grade boys (or 6-7 years old) excited to get going! Tiger Cubs do stuff - lots of stuff - with their adult partners. This program is intended to open up the world to inquisitive minds along with the caring guidance of adults. The first steps along the Boy Scout Trail are laid here and every rank advancement through the scouting program builds on the basic categories of activity done as tigers. Please visit the Tiger Den Page for more information.
If a Cub Scout has completed the first grade (or is 7-8 years old) and has earned the Bobcat Badge, he may start earning the Wolf Rank. He receives a Wolf Scout handbook, Wolf neckerchief, and Wolf neckerchief slide when beginning the Wolf portion of the cub scout trail. This part of the cub scout trail is intended to take one school year, preparing the scout to begin earning his Bear rank after he completes second grade. Please visit the Wolf Den Page for more information.
If a Cub Scout has completed the second grade (or is 8-9 years old) and has earned the Bobcat Badge, he may start earning the Bear Rank. He receives a Bear Scout handbook and Bear neckerchief, but continues to use the Wolf neckerchief slide when beginning the Bear portion of the boy scout trail. He will continue to use the blue Cub Scout Uniform. This part of the boy scout trail is intended to take one school year, preparing the scout to begin earning his Webelos rank after he completes third grade. Please visit the Bear Den Page for more information.
Webelos and Arrow of Light is a 20 month program for 4th and 5th grade boys to prepare to join a Boy Scout troop while learning outdoors
skills and participating in 20 different activity badges. A well-run group of Webelos is a gradual change from being an 'adult-run' den to being a 'boy-run' patrol ready to fit right into an adventurous scouting troop. This migration requires the parents and den leaders to give the scouts more and more control, decision-making power, and responsibility as they progress in skills, abilities, and maturity. A good program also provides the scouts with many opportunities to grow in the Webelos Virtues. Please visit our Webelos Den Page and Arrow of Light Den Page for more information.
