Advancement Plan


Recognition is important to young boys. The Cub Scouting advancement plan provides fun for the boys, gives them a sense of personal achievement as they earn badges, and strengthens family understanding as adult family members work with boys on advancement projects.

  • The first rank that every boy must earn when entering the Cub Scouting Program is the Bobcat rank.
  • The Tiger Cub program is for first-grade (or age 6) boys and their adult partners.
  • There are five Tiger Cub achievement areas.
  • The Tiger Cub, working with his 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 boy in the first grade.
  • The Wolf program is for boys who have completed first grade (or are age 7).
  • To earn the Wolf badge, a boy must pass 12 achievements involving simple physical and mental skills.
  • The Bear rank is for boys who have completed second grade (or are age 8).
  • 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.
  • This program is for boys who have completed third grade (or are age 9).
  • A boy may begin working on the Webelos badge as soon as he joins a Webelos den.
  • This is the first step in his transition from the Webelos den to the Boy Scout troop.
  • As he completes the requirements found in the Webelos Handbook, he will work on activity badges, attend meetings led by adults, and become familiar with the Boy Scout requirements—all leading to the Arrow of Light Award.
  • The Arrow of Light Award is the highest rank in Cub Scouting.
  • The Cub Scout will have to earn the Webelos badge and at least eight activity badges, including Citizen, Readyman, and Fitness.
  • The total must include one from each of the five activity groups.
  • Along this his path to the Arrow of Light a scout will learn and grow in many subjects that will prepare him for Boy Scouting.
  • He will be ready to join a Boy Scout troop and will be able to take and wear the Arrow of Light with him as he bridges over.
