Every Cub Scout is a member of a Cub Scout pack
A pack is a large group of boys.
The pack is divided into smaller groups called dens. Each den might have as many as a dozen boys or so. All of the Cub Scouts in a den are about the same age and are usually in the same grade at school.
1st Grade boys are part of a Tiger Cub den.
2nd Grade Boys are part of a Wolf Cub den.
3rd Grade Boys are part of a Bear Cub den.
4th & 5th Grade boys are part of a Webelos Den.
("Webelos" is a word that means "We'll be loyal scouts.")
All ages and grades of Cub Scouts Earn Awards
While you're having fun, you'll also be earning badges and awards. You'll work on projects with your parents or other adults in your family, and all of you will feel good about the things you accomplish. When you have earned a badge, you and an adult member of your family might take part in a ceremony in front of the whole pack. This is a way of saying "thank you" to your family for their help in earning your award.
The most popular awards for Cub Scouts are the advancement awards. Boys do requirements to advance and earn their badges of rank: Bobcat, Tiger, Wolf, Bear, Webelos, and the Arrow of Light Award.
The Arrow of Light
is the highest award in Cub Scouting.
Webelos Scouts also earn activity badges.
The Cub Scout Academics and Sports program is popular, too. Cub Scouts get to learn about favorite subjects such as art, math, science, and citizenship. Or they play individual and team sports such as archery, gymnastics, skating, or soccer. You don't need to be a star athlete to play Cub Scout Sports.
You're a winner when you do your best!
