Advancement & Awards
CS Advancement

The Boy Scouts of America provides recognition for Cub Scout achievements. A fundamental purpose of advancement is the knowledge and self-confidence a boy acquires from his participation in a den and pack. Requirements serve as the basis for a Cub Scout's rank advancement.

For a complete and up to date listing of all Awards and Advancements, check the National BSA Site.

Is your Scout interested in earning Chess, Geography, Marbles, and Map & Compass Belt Loops?

Join us at 9:30 at the Philadelphia Academy Charter School March 16 for a great morning of Cub Scout activities. Scouts will leave with all 4 belt loops AND a Marble set so they can play a game of Marbles with a friend! Registration is limited to 50 Scouts. 

Cub Scout ranks are generally based on grade level and/or age. No matter what age or grade a boy joins Cub Scouting, he must earn his Bobcat Badge before continuing working on the rank appropriate for his grade / age.

The Arrow of Light is the highest award in Cub Scouts and can be earned as a Webelos.  The Arrow of Light is the only Cub Scout badge that can be worn on the Boy Scout Uniform.

Additional information on these ranks is available on the national site.

Cub Scouting recognizes the importance of education. To reinforce the academic achievement of members, there are special pins and belt loops that are available to reinforce Cub Scouts school work.
