Once a Cub Scout has completed the six core adventures including one duty to God adventure, and one of his or his den’s choosing he will have earned his badge of rank.

Notes

Each adventure is designed to take approximately two den meetings to implement. For some adventures, one of the meetings may be an outing, ranging from attending a sporting event as a den, to taking a hike, to visiting a museum or going on a campout. At the conclusion of each adventure, a recognition device (a metal belt loop with the image of the award on it) is awarded.
