  5. Family Understanding
  6. Respectful Relationships
  7. Personal Achievement
  8. Friendly Service
  9. Fun & Adventure
  10. Preparation for Boy Scouts cub scouts age

As a boy begins the Boy Scout Trail, he joins other boys his own age. He can start the scouting program from 6 (starting 1st grade) to 17 years old. The Cub Scout age program is for 1st graders through 5th graders – Tiger cubs, Wolf scouts, Bear scouts, and Webelos, which is a 2-year program. After completing Bear scout requirements, scouts begin their Webelos program.

The Cub Scout program has an Organization structure that puts boys into groups called dens with recommended size of from 6 to 8 scouts. Dens of boys in a community form a Pack which is part of a district. Districts combine to make a council. Pack 878 is in the Grand Canyon Council. A Unit is a numbered group of youth with distinct program features designed for the ages of its members. Cub Scout Packs are the Units for the youngest boys. Boy Scout Troops are Units for boys ages 11 to 18. Venture Crews and Varsity Teams are Units for both boys and girls 14 years old and up.
