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 receives a Wolf Scout handbook, Wolf neckerchief, and Wolf neckerchief slide when beginning the Wolf portion of the boy scout trail. He will also need a blue cub scout uniform. 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 .
Wolf Scout Advancement
A Wolf Cub must complete 12 achievements to be awarded his Wolf Badge. Upon completion of the achievements, he may start working on electives to receive arrow points. 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.
