The Wolf Scout program is for boys who have completed first grade (or are age 8). After earning the Bobcat badge, a boy may earn the Wolf badge by completing 12 achievements involving simple physical and mental skills.

History

The British Scouts adopted the Wolf Cubbing program in 1916. In 1918, the first unofficial Wolf Cub packs appeared in the United States. Experimental Cubbing units began in 1928 and in 1930 the Boy Scouts of America began registering the first packs. The original Wolf badge was white on red felt and the current cloth version of the Wolf badge was introduced in 1972. The Wolf program was originally for boys age 9, later changed to age 8, and in 1986 became associated with second grade boys.
