wolf adventures requirements
Cub Scouting is all about adventure!  To earn their rank badge, Cub Scouts complete seven “adventures,” which are collections of themed, multidisciplinary activities.  They also complete safety exercises.  Below, you’ll find the exact requirements.

Wolf Cub Scouts are second graders.

Cub Scout Wolf rank requirements include topics such as hiking, playing games, communication skills, and our duty to our country.

Wolf Rank Requirements

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

a. Call of the Wild
b. Council Fire
c. Duty to God Footsteps
d. Howling at the Moon
e. Paws on the Path
f. Running With the Pack

2. Complete one Wolf elective adventure of your den or family’s choosing.

3. With your parent or adult partner, 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 adult partner.
