Bear Cubs are Third grade boys who work together toward earning their Bear badge. If a Bear is new to Cub Scouting, he must first earn his Bobcat rank. “To earn the Bear Badge, a Cub Scout must complete 12 achievements out of a possible 24 that are offered in the book. The achievements are grouped in 4 major areas, GOD, COUNTRY, FAMILY, and SELF. Within each group, a required number of achievements must be completed, as indicated below. Also, any achievements that they do NOT use to earn the Bear Badge may be used to earn Arrow Points.” Resource: Bear Badge Requirements
