Cub Scout Bear Rank

Bear Badge
Target age group:3rd grade
Created:1930
Current status:Active
Latest Requirements Revision:2003
Latest Handbook Revision:#33451
Previous rank:
Wolf Cub Scout
Next rank:
Webelos Scout

The Bear Scout program is for boys who have completed second grade (or are age 9). After earning the Bobcat badge, a boy 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 Scouts to complete requirements toward an award or rank. The den leader can initial the requirement in the boys' handbooks, but it must also be signed by a parent or guardian to indicate the requirement has been completed. The Den Chief helps lead the meetings. The Denners and Assistant Den Leaders lead Opening and Closing flag ceremonies and help with setup and cleanup.

After he has earned the Bear badge, a boy is encouraged to work on any of 100 Bear Electives projects. When he completes 10 elective projects, he earns a Gold Arrow Point to wear under the Bear badge. For each additional 10 elective projects completed, he earns a Silver Arrow Point.

Bear Cub Scouts can complete Belt Loops and Pins at any time. The Bear Scout uniform has six parts.

Progress Toward Ranks

The Progress Toward Ranks emblem is for Wolf and Bear Cub Scouts. While working toward the Wolf or Bear rank badge, Cubs receive one bead for every three achievements completed: Yellow beads for Wolf, Red beads for Bear.

The emblem is worn suspended from the right pocket flap button on the blue Cub Scout uniform shirt.



Arrow Points

Arrow Points are for boys who hold the Wolf and Bear Cub Scout Ranks. Once the rank badge has been earned, Cub Scouts may complete elective requirements to earn Arrow Points. After completing the first ten electives, a gold arrow point is awarded. Each further 10 electives will earn a silver arrow point. They are attached below the left pocket of the blue Cub Scout uniform.

Arrow Points

Example of 1 gold and 4 silver, for 50 completed electives.
Level:Wolf and Bear
Created:1930

Bear Electives

Main article: Bear Electives

Once the rank badge has been earned, Bear Cub Scouts may complete elective requirements to earn Arrow Points. Achievements that were not used to earn the Bear badge may be used as electives; but, unused parts of the achievements that were used for the Bear badge may not be counted towards Arrow Points. Here are two examples:

  • The Scout uses Achievement 5. "Sharing Your World with Wildlife", and completes 5.a, b, c, and e toward earning the Bear badge. After earning the Bear badge, the Scout cannot go back and complete 5.d, and count that as an elective.
  • The Scout does not use Achievement 4. "Tall Tales", as an achievement toward the Bear badge; then, 4.a, b, and c can count as electives for a total of three toward an arrow point.
