What are Cub Scout Ranks and How does my Son or daughter Advance?

Lion. The Lion program is an introductory program to scouting for boys and girls in kindergarten. Lions do adventures with their adult partners and other Lions

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

Tiger. The Tiger Cub program is for first-grade (or age 7) boys and girls and their adult partners. The requirements consist of an exciting series of indoor and outdoor activities just right for boys and girls in the first grade.

Wolf. The Wolf program is for boys and girls in second grade (or age 8). To earn the Wolf badge, scouts work physical and mental skills.

Bear. The Bear rank is for boys and girls who have completed second grade (or age 9). The Cub Scout must complete 7 adventures to earn the Bear badge. These requirements are somewhat more difficult and challenging than those for Wolf rank.

WEBELOS. This is a 2-year program for boys and girls who have completed third grade (or age 10). This is the first step in their transition from Cub Scouts to a Scouts BSA troop. Scouts work on adventure pins, attend meetings led by adults, and becomes familiar with the Scouts BSA requirements, all leading up to the Arrow of Light Award.
