Cub Scout Ranks


Cub Scout ranks are designed with age-appropriate requirements to help the Scout grow along the Advancement Trail towards the Arrow of Light.

There are nine elective adventures they may also earn. Adventures and their requirements, along with suggested activities, are in the Lion Handbook. Lions may participate in the Pinewood Derby and go to family camp, but they aren't allowed to go to day camp or engage in shooting sports. Lions don't earn Bobcat (explained below).

Scouts must also recite, with help if needed, the Cub Scout Motto ("Do Your Best"), the Scout Law, and the Scout Oath. Parents or guardians need to do youth protection exercises with their Scout. Also, the Scout must earn the Cyber Chip (for Internet safety) every year.
