The Bear Cub Scout program is for 3rd graders (Ages 8-9)
After earning the Bobcat badge, the scout may earn the Bear badge by completing 6 Bear Adventures and one elective adventure.
The Bear rank is earned by completing these six adventures and one Elective adventure.
Fellowship and Duty to God
Fur, Feathers, and Ferns
Baloo the Builder
Paws for Action
Bear Scouts may also complete any number of the following elective adventures.
On the advancement trail, a Cub Scout progresses towards a badge of rank based on their grade. They need not have earned the previous rank in order to earn the next. Each of the ranks in Cub Scouting has its own requirements that are age appropriate, so earning a rank below a Cub Scout’s current grade is not permitted. As a Cub Scout advances through the ranks, the requirements get more challenging, to match the new skills and abilities they have learned.
