A bear Den is one part of the Cub Scout program, which precedes the Boy Scout
program, but is still owned and chartered by the Boy Scouts of America.
The following groups are all part of Cub Scouts, and are organized into dens
(similar to patrols):
Tiger Cubs 6
Webelos (short for "We'll be loyal Scouts") 9-10
A lodge is a unit of The Order of the Arrow, which is a brotherhood of
honor campers. People are elected into the OA by non-members and members
(fellow scouts in one's unit). The basis for selection to and the underlying
principles of the OA are: exemplifying the ideals of scouting, and the devotion
to the welfare and service of others. The membership of a lodge usually comes
from a single council, which is a chartered entity that provides a geographic
area with such services as: distributing insignia and literature, coordinating
council wide activities and communication, providing training and support for
leaders, and providing an interface to National and Regional levels of
administration. (I might have left something out, but I don't know what.)
Eagle is the highest rank that a Boy Scout may attain. I believe that it is
roughly equivalent to your "Queen Scout." Question: Will this change to
"King Scout" when Prince Charles ascends the throne?
Feel free to send me email if you have any more questions!
Yours in Scouting,

My name is Mike Calcutt I'm a Scout Leader with the 2nd Wallingford
Scout Troop in Oxfordshire England.
I've been in Scouting since the age of 2 weeks and have passed
through Cub Scouts, Scouts, Sea Scouts & Venture Scouts. After which
I became a Cub Scout Leader until 5 years ago when I became a Scout
I've read with interest the topics discussed but I have a few
questions, which are mainly about the terms you use. So I would
be grateful if someone could explain the Scout setup in the USA
and what the following mean.
Bear Den ?
Eagle Scout ?
Some things I have been able to deduce
Scout Master = Scout Leader
Boy Scout = Scout
Girl Scout = Girl Guide
