Scout Requirements changed in 2015. Please click on your dens name to learn the new requirements. All new scouts must earn the Bobcat Rank before starting other adventures.
Bobcat Rank Requirements:
1. Learn and say the Scout Oath:
"On my honor, I will do my best
To do my duty to God and my Country and to obey the Scout Law;
To help other people at all times;
To keep myself physically strong, mentally awake, and morally straight."
2. Learn and say the Scout Law:
"A Scout is:
Trustworthy, Loyal, Helpful,
Friendly, Courteous, Kind,
Obedient, Cheerful, Thrifty,
Brave, Clean, and Reverent."
3. Show the Cub Scout Sign and what it means:
Make the sign with your right hand and with your arm held straight up. The two fingers look like a wolf's ears ready to listen to Akela. Give the sign when you say the Oath or Law.
4. Show the Cub Scout Handshake and what it means:
Using your right hand, place your first two fingers along the inside of the other scout's wrist. This means that you help each other remember and obey the Oath and Law.
5. Say the Cub Scout Motto:
"Do Your Best"
6. Give the Cub Scout Salute and what it means:
Point your first two fingers of your right hand out straight and close together. Touch the tips of the fingers to your cap or if not wearing a cap then to your eyebrow. A salute is a way to show respect. Salute the flag when reciting the pledge to show you are proud of your country.
7. With your parent or guardian, complete the exercises in the booklet, How to Protect Your Children from Child Abuse.
