Bobcat - The First Step for Every Cub Scout

Boys who join the Cub Scout program on June 1, 2015, or later must complete the Bobcat requirements listed below 
before earning the rank badge for their school or birth year.  This is true if they are earning Tiger, Wolf, Bear, or Webelos.  Once earned as a Cub Scout, they do not need to re-earn Bobcat in subsequent years.

Earning the Bobcat badge is easy, it can be done in 30 minutes or less!
  1. Learn and say the Scout Oath, with help if needed.

    On my honor I will do my best
    To do my duty to God and my country
    and to obey the Scout Law;
    To help other people at all times;
    To keep myself physically strong,
    mentally awake, and morally straight.

  2. Learn and say the Scout Law, with help if needed.

    A Scout is trustworthy, loyal, helpful, friendly
    courteous, kind, obedient, cheerful, thrifty
    brave, clean, and reverent.

  3. Show the Cub Scout sign. Tell what it means.

    The Cub Scout sign is made with the right arm held straight up.

    They stand for the Scout Oath and Scout Law.
    The two fingers look like a wolf's ears, ready to listen to Akela.
    Give the Cub Scout sign when reciting the Scout Oath or Law.
