Wolf Advancement

If a Cub Scout has completed the first grade (or is 8 years old) and has earned the Bobcat Badge, the scout may start earning the Wolf rank. The scout receives a Wolf Scout handbook, Wolf neckerchief, and Wolf neckerchief slide when beginning the Wolf portion of the boy scout trail. The scout will also need a blue Cub Scout Uniform. This part of the boy scout trail is intended to take one school year, preparing the scout to begin earning the Bear rank after completing second grade.
