A Bear Goes Fishing,
a Bear Elective Adventure
The Bear Cub Scout Den Leader Guide says, “Fishing is a skill that can become a lifelong hobby, or possibly a career. It can be done alone, or with family or friends. This adventure lays some groundwork for the Fishing merit badge once the Bear becomes a Boy Scout. This adventure is meant to be fun and can be used for teaching several points of the Scout Law such as trustworthy, helpful, courteous, obedient, thrifty, cheerful, clean, and even reverent.”
