Wolf & Bear Scouts (2nd & 3rd Grade)



  Wolf and Bear scouts complete twelve Achievements to earn their rank badge (patch).  All the requirements are outlined in the rank hand-books.  These requirements are meant to be completed at home with parent /guardian assistance.  Achievements may be worked on at Den meetings at the discretion of the Den Leader.  Either a parent or the den leader can approve and sign off the work.  After the rank badge has been earned and awarded the scout / parent focus changes to arrow points.  Arrow points are earned by completing electives.  When ten electives or unused achievements are completed, a boy is awarded a Gold Arrow Point. When another ten projects are completed a Silver Arrow Point is awarded. For every ten electives/achievements thereafter another Silver Arrow Point is awarded. Note:  There are slight differences for the use of un-used achievements for Arrow Points by Bears (see the handbook for details). 
Wolf and Bear Scout BSA documents state specifically that Wolf and Bear parents are not required to attend Den meetings.  However, being a Den Leader can be a very time consuming activity which may require the help of parents.  Some Den Leaders elect to have a parent host be responsible for running the Den Meetings. This allows the Den Leader to catch up on paperwork or have parent meetings.  Den Leaders are expected to help plan or least advise on the Den meeting plan and provide needed books, literature and supplies.  The parent host approach requires the Den leader and Den parents to work out a schedule for Den Meetings.  If parents do not feel comfortable running a Den meeting or have scheduling conflicts they should discuss this with the Den leader or Cub Master so that an alternate means of supporting the Pack and or Den can be found. Remember to keep it fun and make cub scouts an enjoyable and memorable experience. 

Tiger Scouts (1st Grade)



 Tiger Scouts and Parent(s) work as a team and join scouting together.  Tigers Scouts require at least one adult 18 years of age or older accompany the tiger scout to every scout function.  This includes all den meetings, pack meetings and field trips.  Tiger scout parents take turns leading den meetings, with help and ideas provided by the Den leader. 

Webelos (4th & 5th Grade)



 This program is for boys who have completed third grade (or are age 10). A boy may begin working on the Webelos badge as soon as he joins a Webelos den. This is the first step in his transition from the Webelos den to the Boy Scout troop.  Webelos complete the requirements found in the Webelos Handbook, work on activity badges, attend meetings led by adults, and become familiar with the Boy Scout requirements—all leading to the Arrow of Light Award.  A key difference is that the Webelos Leader is responsible for approving and signing off achievements (not the cub scouts’ Parent /Guardian)
