What will my Son be learning:ALL new scouts for all levels The Bobcat Trail When a boy is between the ages of seven and eleven years old or is (at least) in the first grade, he can become a Cub Scout. Regardless of a qualifying boy's age, he must complete the Bobcat Trail as the first step in his Cub Scouting adventure. Along this trail the Cub Scout learns the Cub Scout Promise, the Law of the Pack, and the Cub Scout Motto. These are the three most important things a boy must learn because they will help him through all of the trails of Scouting
What will my Son be learning: Tiger Cubs / 1st Grade / Den 5 Tobby Silver + Tiger parents Tigers TIGER CUB SCOUT ACHIEVEMENTS Starting the path to the Tiger Cub Rank, a scout first earns the Bobcat badge - this is the first step for all Cub Scouts. But, a Tiger Cub will really earn his Tiger Cub Totem first because its requirements are very simple and it gives him something tangible to receive at the first pack meeting, even if he did not complete all the Bobcat requirements. The Tiger Cub Totem requirements are: Learn the Cub Scout Motto DO YOUR BEST!! Learn the Cub Scout Sign Learn the Cub Scout Salute
What will my Son be learning: Wolf Scouts / 2nd Grade / Den 3 Kevin Flay and Steve Collins Next, the Wolf Badge is earned by boys who have completed first grade, or who are eight years old. As a Cub Scout completes his achievements towards the Wolf (and Bear) ranks, the Den Leader recognizes a boy's hard work with the Immediate Recognition patch and beads. This is used as an incentive towards continued achievement. After a boy earns his Wolf badge, he works on Wolf Electives which consist of special projects and activities. Completing them allows him to earn Arrow Points to display on his uniform under his Wolf badge.
What will my Son be learning:Bear Scouts / 3rd Grade / Den 4 Rich Santos and Brian Solby The Bear Badge can be earned by boys who have completed second grade, or who are nine years old. As a Bear-aged boy progresses, he too can earn the Immediate Recognition patch and beads. One of the Bear achievements involves earning the "Whittling Chip" wallet card. Earning this card shows that a Bear has learned the fundamentals of knife safety. After earning the Bear badge, a special collection of age-appropriate Bear Electives are also available to allow Bear Cub's to earn Arrow Points too!
What will my Son be learning:Webelos I and II Dens & The Webelos Badge is for boys who have completed third grade, or who are ten years old. The Webelos rank is the first step in a boy's transition towards a Boy Scout troop. As he completes the requirements in the Webelos Scout Book, he will work on Activity Badges. These are age-appropriate projects for older Cub Scouts. Activity badges are sorted into five discipline-related groups. Activity Badges can be displayed on the front of the Webelos cap or on the Webelos Colors. After earning the Webelos badge, the Webelos Scout may recieve the Compass Points emblem and gold 'devices' to pin on it as an incentive to complete additional Activity Badges.
What will my Son be learning:Webelos II transition to Boy Scouts After a boy has completed the fourth grade and earned the Webelos badge, the next step on the Webelos trail to becoming a Boy Scout is earning the Arrow of Light Award. This is the highest award a Cub Scout can earn, and is the only Cub Scout badge that can be worn on the Boy Scout Uniform. As a boy works on the Arrow of Light, he gets a chance to practice some Scout skills that he has already learned, earn more Activity Badges, and REALLY learn what a Boy Scout is. Because this award is so special, a special ceremony should always be performed by the Pack!
