Pack Meetings are the 2nd Thursday of each month in the Blanton Elementary Cafeteria, 7:00 p.m.


Tiger Cubs – Tiger Cub dens are made up of first graders or 7
year old boys and their adult partners. The Tiger Cub program
is conducted on two levels. First, the Tiger Cub and his
adult partner meet in the home to conduct activities for the
whole family. Second, the Tiger Cub and adult partners in the
den, use one of the planned big ideas from their activity
pack during one of their meetings. Each den meeting is hosted by a
Tiger Cub – adult partner team. At the end of the school term,
Tiger Cubs automatically graduate into Cub Scouting

Wolf Cubs – If a Cub Scout has completed the first grade (or
is 8 years old) he may begin working on his Wolf
achievements. There are twelve: Feats of Skill, Your Flag, Keep Your
Body Healthy, Know Your Home and Community, Tools for Fixing
and Building, Start a Collection, Your Living World,
Cooking and Eating, Be Safe at Home and on the Street, Family Fun,
Duty to God, and Making Choices. Upon completion of the
achievements, he is awarded the Wolf badge, and may continue to work
on Wolf electives in twenty-two different areas. When a boy
completes ten projects he receives a Gold Arrow Point. For
each additional ten projects he receives a Silver Arrow Point.

Bear Cubs – When a Cub Scout has completed the second grade
(or is 9 years old) he begins working on his Bear
achievements. There are twenty-four achievements in four different
groups: God, Country, Family, and Self. To achieve the
Bear rank, the Cub Scout must earn his choice of twelve: one
from the first group, three from the second group, and four
from each of the third and fourth groups. The achievements
are: Ways We Worship; Emblems of Faith; What Makes
America Special?; Tall Tales; Sharing Your World with
Wildlife; Take Care of Your Planet; Law Enforcement Is a Big Job!;
The Past is Exciting and Important; What’s Cooking?; Family
Fun; Be Ready!; Family Outdoor Adventures; Saving Well,
Spending Well; Ride Right; Games-Games-Games!; Building
Muscles; Information, Please; Jot it Down; Shavings and Chips;
Sawdust and Nails; Build a Model; Typing it All Up; Sports, Sports,
Sports; and Be a Leader. After achieving the Bear badge,
a boy may concentrate on twenty-four Bear elective areas
until he becomes a Webelo Scout. Gold and Silver Arrow
Points are also awarded for these projects.

Webelo Scouts – After completing the third grade, a Cub Scout
graduates with ceremony into a Webelo den. This is a
special den for boys in the fourth or fifth grade who are a least 10
years of age. The Webelo Scout program is more challenging to
the older boy – in fact, he’s now called a Webelo Scout and
wears a different uniform signifying his new status. Meetings
are usually held in the early evening or on Saturday
each week. His leader is a man or woman assisted by other den
parents. He begins work immediately on the Webelo badge. In addition,
he can earn twenty Webelo activity badges; Aquanaut,
Artist, Athlete, Citizen, Communicator, Craftsman,
Engineer, Family Member, Fitness, Forester, Geologist, Handyman,
Naturalist, Outdoorsman, Readyman, Scholar, Scientist, Showman,
Sportsman, and Traveler. As a fifth grader he may earn Cub Scouting’s
highest award – the Arrow of Light Award. After
receiving this award, he is eligible to become a Boy Scout, or he may
join a troop at age 11 after completion of the fifth grade.
