Cub Scouts is a year-round, family-friendly program designed for boys who are in the first grade through fifth grade (ages 7-10). Activities are used to achieve the focus of Scouting – citizenship training, character development and personal fitness. Many of the activities happen right in the den and pack.
In 1930, the Boy Scouts of America initiated a program to help younger boys through Cub Scouting. First graders are called Tiger Cubs and participate in the program with an adult partner. Second graders are called Wolves; third graders are Bears. Fourth- and fifth-grade (or 10-year-old) boys are called Webelos (WE‘ll BE LOyal Scouts) and participate in more advanced activities that begin to prepare them to become Boy Scouts. Parents, leaders, and organizations work together to achieve the purposes of Cub Scouting. Currently, Cub Scouting is the largest of the BSA’s membership divisions.
