The Cubs program is a 5 year program open to boys who are 7 years old or have begun the first grade. Our Pack is split into 5 dens:

Appropriate Age / Grade
 TigersAges 6-8 ; 1st Grade (Must have started 1st grade if 6 years old)
 WolvesAges 7-9 ; 2nd Grade
 BearsAges 8-10; 3rd Grade
 Webelos 1
Ages 9-11; 4th Grade
 Webelos 2
Ages 10-12; 5th Grade

Boys and girls begin as Tiger cubs in the first grade and progress through the dens until Webelos 2. Children can join at any point in the cubs program, however if they are older they may start in the later dens. For instance, if your child will be entering 2nd grade this year, he/she would join the Wolves. The programs are different for each of the dens and are designed to be age appropriate, thus it is not possible repeat a year.

In addition to "Pack" events, which are events designed for all dens to participate, there are individual den meetings also scheduled throughout the year on Saturday/Sundays. Individual den calendars will be available at the beginning of the Scout Year in August. On average, you should plan on devoting 2 weekend days per month to Cub Scouts. 

Boys and girls 11 and older or boys in 6th grade and up may join the Scout Troop 681, also located in Basel.
