Recognition is important to young boys. The Cub Scout advancement
plan provides fun, a sense of personal
achievement, and strengthens family understanding
as adult family members work with boys on advancement projects. Achievements are designed to be age-appropriate and provide just enough of a challenge to give boys a sense of accomplishment and pride.
Tiger Cub. The Tiger Cub program is for first-grade (or age
7) boys and their adult partners. The Tiger Cub, working with his adult partner, completes 15
requirements within 5 achievement 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.
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 12
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). This is the first step in a boy's
transition from a Cub Scout pack to a Boy Scout troop. As he completes
the requirements, he will work on
activity badges, attend meetings led by adults, and become familiar
with the Boy Scout requirements—all leading to the Arrow of Light Award.
