    The first badge all Cub Scouts earn, regardless of age, is the Bobcat Badge. After earning the Bobcat Badge, they proceed to work on advancement specific to their grade level (see below.) As part of these requirements, they must learn the Cub Scout Promise, the Law of the Pack, and the Cub Scout Motto Requirements for Bobcat are included in each rank handbook such as illustrated below.
   

Cub Scouts joining as First Grade boys enter the Tiger Cub Program. These very young boys work with a parent partner.  Each Tiger Cub family team is a part of their den and work together on den activities, family activities, and "Go See Its" (field trip activities) with their Den.  Tiger Cubs complete Achievements to earn the Tiger Cub Badge, and complete Electives to receive Tiger Track Beads to wear from a belt emblem (Tiger Cub Immediate Recognition).

In the Third Grade, Cub Scouts work toward the Bear Badge by completing 12 of 24 Achievements and then they work on Electives to earn  Gold Arrow Point and Silver Arrow Points. The Bear program offers more "choice" as the boys expand their individual interests, for example, choosing which 12 of the 24 Achievements to complete.  All requirements for these badges are found in the Bear Cub Scout Book.

The Webelos Program is a two year program for Fourth and Fifth Grade Boys.  In both years, they work toward earning Webelos Activity Badges in twenty different areas, arranged in five groups.   Activity requirements shift significantly away from the home and to the Den at this age, often requiring technical instruction from teachers or professionals other than the parent or den leader.  "WEBELOS" (WE'll BE LOyal Scouts) involves more outdoor programs to prepare for Boy Scouts.

 

Fourth Grade Boys work toward the Webelos Badge.   After earning the Webelos Badge, boys work toward the Compass Point Emblem and Metal Compass Points as they earn additional Activity Badges. 

 

Fifth Graders, after earning the Webelos Badge, and additional Activity Badges earn the Arrow of Light, cubscoutings highest award and the only Cub Scouting award that can be worn on the Boy Scout uniform.
