What Is Cub Scouting?

In 1930 the Boy Scouts of America launched a home- and neighborhood-centered program for boys 9 to 11 years of age. A key element of the program is an emphasis on caring, nurturing relationships between boys and their parents, adult leaders, and friends. Currently, Cub Scouting (regular 1st grade to 5th grade) is the largest of the BSA's three membership divisions. The others are Boy Scouting (ages 11 to 21) and Venturing(ages 14 to 21)

The Purpose Of Scouting:

Cub Scouting has nine purposes:
* Positively influence character development and encourage spiritual growth

* Help boys develop habits and attitudes of good citizenship

* Encourage good sportsmanship and pride in growing strong in mind and body

* Improve understanding within the family

* Strengthen boys' ability to get along with other boys and respect other people

*Foster a sense of personal achievement by helping boys develop new interests and skills

* Show how to be helpful and do one's best

* Provide fun and exciting new things to do

* Prepare boys to become Boy Scouts

What "Rank" will my child start at?

Tiger Cub. The Tiger Cub program is for first grade (or age 7) boys and their adult partners. There are five Tiger Cub achievement areas. The Tiger Cub, working with his adult partner, completes 15 requirements within these areas to earn the Tiger Cub Badge. These requirements consist of an exciting series of indoor and outdoor activities just right for a boy in the first grade. An Adult Parent must attend all meetings with their scout.  Adult parents are also expected to help plan the meetings. CLICK HERE FOR MORE INFO ON THE TIGER PROGRAM

         Bobcat. The Bobcat rank is for all boys who join Cub Scouting.

Wolf. The Wolf program is for boys who have completed first grade (or are age 8). To earn the Wolf badge, a boy must pass twelve achievements involving simple physical and mental skills.

Bear. The Bear rank is for boys who have completed second grade (or are age 9). There are 24 Bear achievements in four categories. The Cub Scout must complete 12 of these to earn the Bear badge. These requirements are somewhat more difficult and challenging than those for Wolf rank.

Webelos. This program is for boys who have completed third grade (or are age 10). A boy may begin working on the Webelos badge as soon as he joins a Webelos den. This is the first step in his transition from the Webelos den to the Boy Scout troop.

As he completes the requirements found in the Webelos Scout Book, he will work on activity badges, attend meetings led by adults, and become familiar with the Boy Scout requirementsall leading to the hightes award in Cub Scouts the Arrow of Light Award.

All Parents are expected to assist by volunteering their time with on a Committee for at least one pack activity during a year.
