Wolf Cubs


Once a scout has graduated from Tiger Cubs, or has completed the first grade, or is 8 years old, they begin their Cub Scouting journey! There are lots of exciting and interesting things to do as a Wolf Cub Scout. To start off, the scouts begins working on Wolf achievements. There are 12 in all, and are listed in the Wolf Cub Scout book. As the scout completes each adventure, an adult member of his family must approve the achievement by signing the handbook. The Den Leader keeps a record of the scouts’ progress on the Cub Scout Den Advancement Chart, and gives scouts recognition at a Den Meeting for passing each milestone. When a scout has completed all twelve parts of the Wolf trail, they have earned the right to wear the Wolf badge which is presented at a ceremony during a Pack Meeting.

The founder of Scouting, Sir Robert Baden-Powell of England, based his ideas for Cub Scouts on a Rudyard Kipling book called Mowgli’s Brothers. The story is part of Kipling’s Jungle Books series and is set in India.

In the story, a young boy is separated from his family when his village is attacked by a tiger named Shere Khan. A family of wolves finds him and raises him. When the boy grows older, the family asks Akela, the great leader of the wolf pack, if he may join the pack. The pack council allows him to join so that they can protect him from Shere Khan and other dangers in the jungle.
