Within a Cub Scout pack, there are several divisions, or ranks, that generally separate the scouts by age. Below is a list of scout rankings, along with the age guidelines.
Lion Cubs - Kindergartener Boys and Girls
Tiger Cubs - First Grade Boys and Girls
Wolf Cubs - Second Grade Boys and Girls
Bear Cubs - Third Grade Boys and Girls
Webelos I - Fourth Grade Boys and Girls

Before achieving any Cub Scout rank, the scout must first earn the Bobcat Badge. To earn the badge, the scout must be able to:
- Recite the Scout Oath, the Scout Law, and the Cub Scout Motto, and tell what they mean.
- Show the Cub Scout salute, handshake, and sign, and tell what they mean.
- Show that they understand the importance of being trustworthy and honest.
