If a Cub Scout has completed the second grade (or is 9 years old) and has earned the Bobcat Badge, they may start earning the Bear rank. They receive a Bear Scout handbook and Bear neckerchief, but continues to use the Wolf neckerchief slide when beginning the Bear portion of the boy scout trail. They will continue to use the blue Cub Scout Uniform. This part of the boy scout trail is intended to take one school year, preparing the scout to begin earning the Webelos rank after completing third grade.
