Cub Pack Ranks
Our youngest group, starts in Kindergarten and works together with their adult partner through activities during our Den meetings.
First graders work towards the rank of Tiger through discovery with their adult partner
Those in Second grade work with their adult partner on achievements involving knowledge of the national flag, his religious duties, physical skills, and other simple skills geared to his interests
When the child is in the Third grade or reaches the age of 9, he begins working towards the Bear rank, earning a number of achievements which help him grow on his path of discovery
Those in Fourth and Fifth grade will begin their journey towards Scouts by learning more outdoor skills and working towards their Arrow of Light. Which is the highest achievement a Cub Scout can earn, before joining our Scout Troop.

Whats the difference between Scouts and Cub Scouts?
Cub Scouting is a program specifically designed for youth ages 5 to 10 1/2, full of activities for the Cub Scouts to participate in along with their adult partner. Once they've completed the 5th grade, they have the honor of joining the Scout troop. In Scouts, young men and women from age 11 to 17, learn outdoor skills, teamwork, and leadership as they grow in rank and discover new interest. Cub Pack 518 and Troop 9318 participate in many events together we are a big scouting family.
Do you allow girls?
Yes! Both our Cub Pack and Scout Troop is set up to accept both boys and girls and we already have a number of girls in both groups. Want more information, feel free to reach out.
