The Lion program is geared towards kindergarten age boys and girls who are 5 years old by September 30, 2017.
The Bobcat badge is for all who join Cub Scouting. It is the first badge the Scout will earn. Scouts must complete the Bobcat requirements before moving on to the Tiger, Wolf, Bear or Webelos requirements.
The Tiger Cub program is for first grade boys and girls, and their adult partners. There are five Tiger Cub achievement areas. The Tiger Cub, working with his/her 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 child in the first grade. In addition, Tiger Cubs can earn belt loops for Sporting and Academic activities.
The Wolf Cub program is for second grade boys and girls. To earn the Wolf badge, a Scout must pass twelve achievements involving simple physical and mental skills. After Wolf Cub Scouts earn their Wolf Badge they may begin earning Arrow Points in the Electives section of their book. They may work on the "Arrow Point Trail" at any time, however they cannot receive Arrow Points until after they have earned the Wolf Badge. In addition, Wolf Cubs can earn belt loops and pins for Sporting and Academic activities.
The Bear Cub program is for third grade boys and girls. 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. After Bear Cub Scouts earn their Bear Badge they may begin earning Arrow Points in the Electives section of their book. They may work on the "Arrow Point Trail" at any time, however they cannot receive Arrow Points until after they have earned the Bear Badge. In addition, Bear Cubs can earn belt loops and pins for Sporting and Academic activities.
The Webelos program is for fourth & fifth grade boys and girls. Webelos may begin working on the Webelos badge as soon as they join a Webelos den. This is the first step in his transition from the Webelos den to the Boy Scout troop. Webelos Scouts complete requirements found in the Webelos Scout Book, working on Activity Badges, attend meetings led by adults, and become familiar with the Boy Scout requirements—all leading to the Arrow of Light Award. In addition, Webelos can earn belt loops and pins for Sporting and Academic activities.
