Cub Scout Wolf Rank

Wolf Badge
Target age group:2nd grade
Current status:Active
Latest Requirements Revision:2003
Latest Handbook Revision:#33450
Previous rank:
Tiger Cub Scout
Next rank:
Bear Cub Scout


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.

Often, den meeting activities enable the Wolf Scouts to complete requirements toward an award or rank. The den leader can initial the requirement in the boys' handbooks, but it must also be signed by a parent or guardian to indicate the requirement has been completed. The Den Chief helps lead the meetings. The Denners and Assistant Den Leaders lead Opening and Closing flag ceremonies and help with setup and cleanup.

After he has earned the Wolf badge, a boy is encouraged to work on any of the 100 Wolf Electives projects. When he completes 10 elective projects, he earns a Gold Arrow Point to wear under the Wolf badge. For each additional 10 elective projects completed, he earns a Silver Arrow Point.

Wolf Cub Scouts can complete and repeat Belt Loops and Pins at any time.

“A boy is not a sitting-down animal.”
Robert Baden-Powell

History of Wolf Cubbing

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.
