Scouts who are in the second grade or who are 8 years old are members of a Wolf den. Working with their parents, these scouts earn their Bobcat badge, then start along the trail to Wolf rank.
The Wolf Handbook gives the 12 achievements that a boy must pass to earn the Wolf badge. It also has electives that a Wolf Cub Scout can work on to earn Arrow Points. There are chapters, too, on the Cub Scout World Conservation Award, Cub Scouting's Leave No Trace Awareness Award, and Cub Scout Academics and Sports. The "Get Set for Bear" chapter helps a Wolf Cub Scout move along the advancement trail to the next rank in Cub Scouting.
