If a boy has completed the first grade and has earned the Bobcat Badge, he may start earning the Wolf rank. He needs a Wolf Scout handbook, Wolf neckerchief, and Wolf neckerchief slide. He will also need a blue Cub Scout Uniform. This part of the boy scout trail is intended to take one school year, preparing the scout to begin his Bear adventures after he completes second grade.

Wolf Advancement
Wolf Scouts do adventures described in their Wolf handbook that advance them towards their Wolf rank. By completing seven adventures, the Wolf rank is earned.

Wolf Rank Requirements:

Complete each of the following Wolf required adventures with your den or family:

Complete one Wolf elective adventure of your den or family’s choosing from this list:

With your parent or guardian, complete the exercises in the pamphlet How to Protect Your Children From Child Abuse: A Parent’s Guide and earn the Cyber Chip award for your age.*

* If your family does not have Internet access at home AND you do not have ready Internet access at school or another public place or via a mobile device, the Cyber Chip portion of this requirement may be waived by your parent or guardian.

Akela is the name given to the Cub Scout’s parent or guardian, the caring adult guiding him along his Cub Scouting trail. Akela is responsible for acknowledging completion of each adventure requirement by signing and dating the appropriate spot in the Wolf’s handbook. There is also a spot for the Wolf Den Leader to sign for each requirement. The Adventure Tracking pages in the back of the Wolf handbook can be used by the Wolf to track his progress all in one spot. His den leader will enter his advancement information into our Pack’s advancement tracking software, known as Packmaster.

A Wolf that has fulfilled his rank requirements still has a lot more adventure waiting for him. He can continue to complete elective adventures with his Akela or his den, or at district and council hosted events. Some scouts set a goal to earn the remaining dozen adventure belt loops before moving on to a Bear den.
