|Cub Scout Bobcat Rank|
The Bobcat badge is the first rank earned by every boy in Cub Scouting. All boys will first work on their Bobcat badge to complete the Cub Scout joining requirements. Once the Bobcat badge requirements have been completed, the Cub Scout will continue with the age appropriate program.
The Bobcat rank was introduced in 1938 as the entry-level rank for every new Cub. The badge was a pin that was to be worn on civilian clothing and was not officially approved to be worn on the uniform shirt until 1959. In late 1972, the Bobcat pin was replaced with an embroidered rank patch and the Wolf and Bear rank badges were updated to the designs currently in use.
