The Wolf Trail

To earn the Wolf rank a Cub Scout must complete six core adventures.  Your scout will need a Wolf Handbook (cost is $12.99) to begin his trail.  Below is an outline of the material covered in the handbook. 

Note: Many activities are done at home and signed off by the parent after the boy has completed each task. The book is then shown to the Den Leader who records the progress.

If the Cub Scout has not previously earned the Bobcat Badge, it must be earned before the scout hits the Trail toward his Wolf Badge.
