Wolf Scouts – 2nd Grade

If a Cub Scout has completed the first grade (or is 8 years old) and has earned the Bobcat Badge, he may start earning the Wolf rank. He will need a blue Cub Scout Uniform, a Wolf neckerchief, and Wolf neckerchief slide when beginning the Wolf portion of the boy scout trail. This part of the boy scout trail is intended to take one school year, preparing the scout to begin earning his Bear rank after he completes second grade.

The Wolf badge is earned by completing six required and one elective adventures. There are a total of 13 elective adventures that might interest your scouts and numerous electives can be completed throughout the year. A belt loop will be awarded for each adventure your scout completes.

Much of the advancement for the Wolf rank is done by the scout with his family outside of the den. The parent signs off in the scout’s handbook and the Den Leader records the advancements from the handbook to tracking chart or software program. As the Tiger program was completely family oriented, so the Wolf program relies heavily on family involvement. You will see this gradually change with the scout doing more with his den and more individual direction as he reaches Webelos and Boy Scouts.
