Our Bear Dens
When a Cub Scout has completed the second grade (or is 9 years old) he begins working on his Bear achievements.
There are 24 achievements in four different groups: God, Country, Family, and Self. To achieve the Bear rank, the Cub Scout must earn his choice of 12: one from the first group, three from the second group, and four from each of the third and fourth groups.
The achievements are: Ways We Worship; Emblems of Faith; What Makes America Special?; Tall Tales; Sharing Your World With Wildlife; Take Care of Your Planet; Law Enforcement Is a Big Job!; The Past Is Exciting and Important; What's Cooking?; Family Fun; Be Ready!; Family Outdoor Adventures; Saving Well, Spending Well; Ride Right; Games-Games-Games!; Building Muscles; Information, Please; Jot It Down; Shavings and Chips; Sawdust and Nails; Build a Model; Typing It All Up; Sports, Sports, Sports; and Be a Leader.
After achieving the Bear badge, a boy may concentrate on 24 Bear elective areas until he becomes a Webelos Scout. Gold and Silver Arrow Points are also awarded for these projects.
