Bear Scout (3rd Grade)

Boys entering the Bear Scout program must have completed the 2nd grade, or be 9 years old. Before working toward completing the Bear adventures, the scout must have completed the Bobcat Trail.

In the third level of Cub Scouts, boys will work toward their Bear rank. In this year, your scout will start to work more independently, but will still require adult supervision. Bear Scouts will refine skills they have acquired in previous ranks and will start to learn new skills as they work through their adventures. As with all other ranks, the Bear Scout should simply do his best and have fun. He need not worry about competency or skill level. 

To earn the Bear rank, the Bear Scout will need to complete 7 adventures and the exercises in the pamphlet found in the Bear handbook. While some activities will need to be completed at home, others will be completed in den meetings or through pack activities.  

Bear Rank Requirements

1. Complete each of the following Bear required adventures with your den or family:
a. Bear Claws
b. Bear Necessities
c. Fellowship and Duty to God
d. Fur, Feathers, and Ferns
e. Grin and Bear It
f. Paws for Action
2. Complete one Bear elective adventure of your den or family's choosing.
3. With your parent or adult partner, complete the exercises in the pamphlet How to 
    Protect Your Children from Child Abuse: A Parent's Guide, and earn the Cyber Chip 
    award for your age.*

*If your family does not have internet access at home AND you do not have ready internet access at school or another public place or via mobile device, the Cyber Chip portion may be waived by your parent or adult partner.
