All Cub Scouts work through their books each year to earn their rank. We call this Advancement. The following links will help you understand what is involved during each year of Scouting (this information can also be found in your handbook). Bobcat Badge: Every Scout must earn this first regardless of when they enter the program.Tiger Badge: First GradeWolf Badge: Second GradeBear Badge: Third GradeWebelos Badge: Fourth GradeArrow of Light: Fifth Grade When the boys have completed the requirements for their rank (we target having requirements, except Bobcat, completed by the April Pack Meeting), and their leader has verified the completion, the boy and his adult partner will be asked to come forward during the following Pack meeting. The badge is presented to the adult partner, who then presents it to their Cub Scout. Boys can also work on electives within their rank as well as other special awards. In addition to activities associated with Advancement in rank, Cub Scouts can earn other awards. Leaders and adults are also eligible to earn some of these awards. Below are some of the awards they can earn. Click on each award for more information.
