Boys who are in the second grade are members of a Wolf den. Working with their parents, these Scouts earn their Bobcat badge, then start along the trail to Wolf rank.
Much of the Wolf work is done at home by the Scouts. While some of the requirements are incorporated into den meetings, many tasks required for the badge should be completed at home with a parent or other leader. Suggested dates for completion will be provided to ensure boys receive rank advancement badges by the end of the scouting year.
Earning Badges: Scouts are encouraged to work ahead. Badges can be earned any time during the year so long as they complete 58 of the 74 requirements.
Arrow Points: Scouts at the Wolf level also earn arrow points by completing electives. There are 12 achievement areas and 23 interesting elective topics. These are located at the end of the Wolf handbook.
The Wolf badge must be earned first before any arrow points are awarded. A gold arrow point is awarded for the first 10 electives. A silver arrow point is awarded for each additional 10 tasks completed.
