Cub Scouts earn various achievement awards, such as beads, belt loops, and pins, throughout the year. Each requirement they complete takes them a step closer to earning their next rank badge (listed below). Many of the activities are completed during pack and den meetings, but the fun doesn't have to stop there. There are plenty of other activities and awards for the boys to earn if you choose to complete them.
Lion is a new Cub Scout program for boys age 5 or in Kindergarten and their adult partners. The program is focused on parent involvement and delivery with support from the Cub Scout pack using literature specifically designed for the younger age group. Each month’s curriculum includes Family/Den Activities, At-Home Activities and Grand Adventures.
Bobcat, the first rank, is for all boys who join Cub Scouting. To earn the Bobcat badge, a Cub Scout must learn the Cub Scout motto, promise, handshake, salute, and sign. This is typically a very short held rank before moving on to Wolves.
