New Scouts obtain Bobcat Badge

On December 4 new Cub Scouts from Pack 164 celebrated obtaining their Bobcat Badges. No matter what age or grade a boy joins Cub Scouting, he must earn his Bobcat Badge before he can advance to the rank of Tiger Cub, Wolf,Bear, or Webelos. A boy must complete the Bobcat requirements, which include demonstrating his understanding of Scouting’s core values. He must be able to recite the Cub Scout Promise, Law of the Pack, and motto and demonstrate the Cub Scout sign, handshake, and salute. He must also explain what each of these ideals means, in addition to demonstrating his understanding of the core values of honesty and trustworthiness, and explaining their importance.

We are very proud of our new Bobcats as they start their journey down the Cub Scout Trail to the Arrow of Light.
