For the latest on the new Cub Scout program, go to the BSA's Program Updates page
The new Cub Scout content will be broken into a series of "adventures", which Cub Scouts will experience while working on their badge of rank. To
earn their rank, cub scouts must complete 7 adventures.
- Tigers, Wolves and Bears must complete 6 required adventures plus one elective adventure.
- Webelos must complete 5 required adventures plus 2 elective adventures.
- Arrow of Light must complete 4 required adventures plus 3 elective adventures.
As the boys age they are given more choice in what adventures they complete, setting the stage for the freedom of choice with merit badges.
