Cub Scout Advancement: Bobcat Rank Relay Race Game

Cub Scout Bobcat Relay RaceAs you know, all boys (regardless of age) must earn the Bobcat badge before they continue their Cub Scout journey.  To help the boys memorize the Bobcat requirements (and to make it more fun), use this fun game.

The game is called the Bobcat Relay Race.  The race can also help the older boys review the Scout Oath and Scout Law.  And it’s a quick active game if you need one.

Here’s how you play:

Divide the den into two teams and have them line up at one end of the room. At the other end, station a parent for each team.

Have the first boy on each team run to the parent for their team. The parent asks the boy to say or demonstrate one of the following:

  1. Scout Oath
  2. Scout Law
  3. Cub Scout Motto
  4. Cub Scout Sign
  5. Cub Scout Handshake
  6. Cub Scout Salute

If the boy can answer the question with assistance, he runs back to tag the next boy. If he can’t answer the question at all, he runs back to his team to get help then returns and answers the question.

If your boys need a little help, you can use these Bobcat Review Pages.

What ideas do you have for helping the boys learn their Bobcat requirements?

    This is an excellent game to play to help new Cubs learn their Bobcat requirements! I would play this game with my Cubs at every Den meeting following our Round-up Night in September until my new Cubs had earned their Bobcat badge (2-3 weeks max.).
    Of course, my Cubs learned the old Bobcat requirements (Cub Scout Promise, Law of the Pack, etc.). When my Den became Webelos II’s, we played this same game to help us learn our Arrow of Light requirements which included the Scout Oath & Law, the Scout sign, handshake, salute, tying a joining knot, etc. I think that the main reason why this game is so effective in helping the boys learn their requirements is because of the competition factor. And the boys always had a good time when they played this game.
