Welcome to the Bear Den

Boys entering 3rd Grade may register to become Bear Scouts. To earn the Bear Badge, a Cub Scout must complete 12 achievements out of a possible 24 that are offered in the book. The achievements are grouped in 4 major areas, GOD, COUNTRY, FAMILY, and SELF. Activities are done at home, during den meetings or outings. After he earns his Bear badge, a boy may earn Arrow Points by working on electives in different interest areas until he crosses over to the next rank. Greater leadership and responsibility is gained at this level.

Our Goals: This is the year your son will grow in amazing ways. After earning their Bear Badge, the scout may earn arrow points by completing additional achievement tasks.

Summary: Much of the advancement for the Bear 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 in our tracking software. The Bear program relies heavily on family involvement, but you will see this gradually change with the scout doing more with his den and more individual direction as he graduates to Webelos.
