When you and your child first join Cub Scouts you become part of a group with children in the same grade and who are the same gender, this small group is called a den.
Each grade level has an animal or emblem associated with it, this is called a rank.
Kindergarten – Lion
First Grade – Tiger
Second Grade – Wolf
Third Grade – Bear
Fourth and Fifth Grade – WEBELOS
Cub Scouts work in their dens and at home on activities that are in their handbooks. These activities are grouped together by subject and are called adventures. After a number of required adventures and elective adventures are completed a Cub Scout earns the rank associated with their grade.
