Wolf Rank

Wolf Rank

A scout who is 8 years old or is in the second grade is a Wolf, and their adventures are found in the Wolf Handbook.

Like all other new Cub Scouts, a Wolf must first earn his Bobcat rank. After completing the requirements for Bobcat they may go on to complete the requirements for the Wolf rank and the many electives that are offered for their rank.

Wolf Scouts work toward the Wolf rank. The Wolf rank is earned by completing seven adventures.

For each adventure, the Wolf Scout must complete the requirements as outlined in the Wolf Cub Scout Handbook. Requirement 7 of Bobcat and requirement 3 of Wolf are identical. If a Cub Scout earns his Bobcat rank during the same year that he begins working on their Wolf rank, they need to complete the requirement only one time.


A parent, guardian, or other caring adult acknowledges the completion of each achievement part by signing the scout's handbook (Akela’s OK). The den leader also signs each scouts' handbook (Den Leader’s OK) and records progress in the den’s advancement records. The Wolf Scouts also keep track of their own advancement using the Adventure Tracking section in the back of their handbooks, and under the guidance of the den leader, they can also keep a record of their individual progress on a den advancement chart and den doodle.

Elective adventures may be earned during den activities, by a scout with the participation of his family, and during council and district-sponsored program opportunities. There is no required order in which adventures must be earned. The sequence is left to the discretion of the den leader and Cubmaster.

After a scout earns the Wolf badge, they will continue to meet with their den, working on additional elective adventures until they complete second grade (or turns 9 years old) and becomes a Bear Scout.
