No matter what age or grade a youth joins Cub Scouting, first earned is the Bobcat badge before advancement to the rank of Tiger, Wolf, Bear or Webelos. The Bobcat requirements include demonstrating the understanding of Scouting's core values and being able to recite the Cub Scout Promise, Law of the Pack and Motto. Additionally required is to demonstrate the Cub Scout sign, Handshake and Salute.
The Wolf rank is for youth who have completed the first grade or who are 8 years old.
Requirements to earn the Wolf Badge are to pass 12 achievements involving simple physical and mental skills. The parent or guardian approves each achievement by signing off in Scoutbook. After earning the Wolf Badge the youth is encouraged to work on the Wolf electives until he completes the second grade, or turns 9 years old.
The Bear rank is for youth who have completed the second grade or are 9 years old. There are 24 Bear achievements in four categories and the requirement is to complete 12 of these to earn the Bear Badge. When having earned the Bear Badge the electives may be worked on to kindling interest in new hobbies as well as teaching new skills that will be useful in later years.
Webelos dens are for youth who have completed third grade or are age 10. The Webelos den program is different from the Cub Scout den program as instead of being based on a monthly theme, the Webelos program is based on one of twenty Webelos activities. These activities are broken into five categories with four activities in each category. In addition to earning the individual activity pins a scout can earn compass points (East, West, North and South) which can be earned after earning seven activity pins.
The pinnacle of Cub Scouting is the Arrow of Light Award. The requirements for this badge include developing outdoor skills, gaining an understanding of the values of scouting and preparing to join Scouts, BSA. The Arrow of Light is the only award presented at an annual Narragansett Council ceremony and is one of the only two Cub Scout badges (the other is the religious award emblem) that can be worn on a Scouts, BSA uniform.
