Children in Kindergarten start in our Lion Den. Your Kindergartner will make friends, laugh, gain confidence, discover nature, and most of all…have fun! They will experience the Scouting concepts of character development, leadership, citizenship, and personal fitness through engaging and exciting adventures! Your scout and their adult partner join and attend meetings and activities together.
Children who complete Kindergarten (or are 7 years old) join our Tiger Den. Tiger Cubs is a fun program that helps a child and their adult partner gain a better understanding of and an appreciation for the community environment in which they live, and introduces them to the excitement of Cub Scouting as they “Search, Discover, and Share” together. Tigers meet once or twice a month as a den and they also attend all pack meetings. Tigers first earn their Bobcat Rank, and then work on their Tiger Cub Badge.
If a Cub Scout has completed the first grade (or is 8 years old) thry join our Wolf Den and may start earning the Wolf rank. They will receive a Wolf neckerchief, and Wolf neckerchief slide when beginning the Wolf portion of the Cub Scout trail. This part of the Scout trail is intended to take one school year, preparing the scout to begin earning their Bear rank after they complete second grade.
If a Cub Scout has completed the second grade (or is 9 years old) they join our Bear Den and may start earning the Bear rank. They will receive a Bear neckerchief, but continues to use the Wolf neckerchief slide when beginning the Bear portion of the Cub Scout trail. They will continue to use the blue Cub Scout Uniform. This part of the Scout trail is intended to take one school year, preparing the scout to begin earning their Webelos rank after they complete third grade.
Webelos 1st year is the beginning of the 20 month program for 4th and 5th graders to prepare to join a Scout troop while learning outdoors skills and participating in 20 different activity badges. A well-run group of Webelos is a gradual change from being an ‘adult-run’ den to being a ‘boy-run’ patrol ready to fit right into an adventurous scouting troop. This migration requires the parents and den leaders to give the scouts more and more control, decision-making power, and responsibility as they progress in skills, abilities, and maturity. Scouts begin the work on their Webelos rank.
Children in the 5th grade continue their Webelos journey and they prepare to enter Scouts. After completing their Webelos Badge, scouts have the opportunity to earn the Arrow of Light, the highest award in Cub Scouting.
