Trail to Bobcat


  No matter what age or grade a boy joins Cub Scouting, he must earn his Bobcat badge before he can advance to the rank of Tiger Cub, Wolf, Bear, or Webelos. A boy must complete the Bobcat requirements, which include:

•Learn and say the Cub Scout motto, the Cub Scout Promise, and the Law of the Pack and tell what they mean

•Show the Cub Scout sign, salute, and handshake and tell what they mean

•Show that you understand and believe that it is important to be honest and trustworthy.

On the advancement trail, a Cub Scout progresses from rank to rank, learning new skills as he goes. Each of the ranks and awards in Cub Scouting has its own requirements. As you advance through the ranks, the requirements get more challenging, to match the new skills and abilities you learn as you get older.
