Cub Scouting is part of the Scouting program of the Boys Scouts of America (BSA), available to boys and girls from first through fifth grade, or 7 to 11½ years of age and their families. Cub Scouting is part of the worldwide Scouting movement and aims to promote character development, citizenship training, and personal fitness.
The highest rank in Cub Scouting is the Arrow of Light Award. Earning this rank prepares a Webelos Scout to become a Boy Scout. Webelos Scouts who have earned the Arrow of Light Award have also completed all requirements for the Boy Scout badge. Rank advancement is awarded when each Scout has been active in your den for at least six months since completing the fourth grade or at least six months since becoming ten years old. These scouts are also required to complete outdoor skills, physical fitness, and learn more about citizenship and working with others.
“I was happy to attend the Arrow of Light Ceremony for Cub Scout Pack 2004. The Arrow of Light in the highest achievable award for a Cub Scout before he moves on to the Boy Scouts. Pack 2004 does a tremendous job advising young boys in scouting and I congratulate them on an additional seven boys achieving the Arrow of Light.” Said Romaine
