The Advancement Plan

The responsibility for a boy's earning of awards in Cub Scouting lies with the family and not with the pack. Some advancement requirements are done at den meetings, but most are completed with you. You can sign off on his requirements when you and your son feel that he has done his best. As a result, the awards he earns raise his self-esteem and confidence.

You can be a part of it by participating in the Cub Scout program with him. The rank awards he earns are listed below:

BOBCAT (Earned by ALL NEW Cub Scouts, regardless of grade)

All boys, regardless of age, earn the Bobcat badge first by learning the Cub Scout Promise, Law of the pack, handshake, salute, sign, motto, and the meaning of "Webelos." After receiving the Bobcat badge, the boy works on requirements based on his grade or age.


"Proud Parent" Ribbon + Bobcat pin


TIGER (First Graders)

Tiger Cubs is for first graders and their adult partners. Tigers work out of a handbook that will teach them to Search, Discover, and Share!

While working toward the Tiger badge, progress is shown with the Tiger Totem, worn on the left shirt pocket of the uniform. There are 3 areas of achievement (indicated by orange, white and black beads), and 5 activities in each area. The yellow "Tiger Track Beads" are for electives once the Tiger badge is earned.


+ Tiger Parent Pin

WOLF (Second Graders)

A Cub Scout who has completed first grade (or is age 8) works on 12 achievements to earn the Wolf badge. Each achievement is designed to teach simple skills and initiate family discussions on values, drug awareness, health, etc.

Progress is shown on the Progress Toward Rank totem (Yellow beads for Wolves, Red for Bears)


 + Wolf Parent Pin


BEAR (Third Graders)

A Cub Scout who has completed second grade (or is age 9) completed 12 of 24 achievements to earn the Bear badge. 

+ Bear Parent Pin

After he earns his Wolf or Bear badge, a boy may work on electives in different interest areas until he is old enough to begin work on the next rank. For every 10 elective a boy completes, he earns an Arrow Point. A boy may earn as many Arrow Points as he wishes, parents help boys learn more complicated life skills and values. 

WEBELOS (Fourth and Fifth Graders)

When a Cub Scout has completed the third grade (or becomes 10 years old), he transfers to a Webelos den, led by an adult Webelos leader. The boy works on requirements for the Webelos badge, 20 activity badges, and the Arrow of Light Award (the highest award in Cub Scouting) which prepares for Boy Scouting.

The diamond shaped Webelos badge is optional for Webelos Scouts who have not earned the Tiger Cub badge (goes on left pocket, position 4).

Activity Badges:

+ Webelos Parent Pin
