Bear Cub Scouts
The Bear Cub Scout program is for youth who have completed second grade (or are age 9). After earning the Bobcat badge, a Scout may earn the Bear badge by completing 12 achievements in four different categories: God, Country, Family, and Self.
Often, den meeting activities enable the Bear Cub Scouts to complete requirements toward an award or rank. The den leader can initial the requirement in the handbooks, or it may be signed by a parent or guardian to indicate the requirement has been completed. The Den Chief helps lead the meetings. The Den Leaders and Assistant Den Leaders lead Opening and Closing flag ceremonies and help with setup and cleanup.
After earning the Bear badge, a Scout is encouraged to work on any of 100 Bear Electives projects.
