When a boy is in the second grade or 8 years old, he can enter the scouting program as a Wolf. The Wolf scouts do all the fun things Tiger Cubs do. They go places and do things under the close supervision of adults.
Like the Tiger Cubs, Wolves work on projects and other things with their parents, guardians, brothers, sisters and friends. They also meet once a week with their Den. During the Den meetings, they will discuss their projects, play games, go places and do other fun things with their adult leaders and partners. In addition to the other fun activities, Wolves start participating in Pack meetings by performing in skits, leading songs and games.
The Wolf program starts and ends with the school year. By the end of the school year, the Wolf scout should have completed all the requirements for that rank. The next year the Wolf scout can advance to the rank of Bear.
Second graders work toward the Wolf rank. The Wolf rank is earned by completing seven adventures as described below.
- Complete each of the six required adventures:
- Call of the Wild
- Council Fire (Duty to Country)
- Duty to God Footsteps
- Howling at the Moon
- Paws on the Path
- Running With the Pack
- In addition to the six required adventures, complete at least one elective adventure of your den’s or family’s choosing.
- With your parent, guardian, or other caring adult, complete the exercises in the pamphlet entitled How to Protect Your Children From Child Abuse: A Parent’s Guide.
- Earn the Cyber Chip award for your age. (The Cyber Chip portion of this requirement may be waived by your parent or guardian if you do not have access to the internet.) OR Earn the Protect Yourself Rules Preview Adventure for Wolf.
