2nd - Wolves

Welcome to the Wolf Year

Wolf Scout Leaders: 

Wolf Scouts are typically second grade boys. 

Wolf Scouts generally have four meetings each month: two to three Den Meetings, and the Pack meeting. The Den meetings may be held on the same day/time of the week, or different days/times, depending on families schedules. 
The Wolf Den Leaders can still participate in shared-leadership with the parents, especially if this worked well during the Tiger year. This is a good way for the parents to continue to stay involved with their son’s Scouting progress, and can be helpful for busy leaders.

Between the opening and closing ceremonies, the Den meeting is divided into two parts:
  • Talk Time: the Den Leaders/adult partners may have announcements, introduce the adventure, and talk about what the Den will be doing for upcoming Den meetings or the Pack meeting. Each boy has a chance to share something that he's done since the last meeting. 
  • Activity: This activity could fulfill one of the required or elective adventures.

To achieve the Wolf Badge, boys must do the following:
  • Complete each of the following required Wolf adventures with their den or family:
    • Call of the Wild,
    • Council Fire,
    • Footsteps of Faith (with family),
    • Howling at the Moon,
    • Paws on the Path,
    • Running With the Pack;
  • Complete one Wolf elective adventure of your den or family’s choosing; and
  • With a parent or adult partner, complete the exercises in the pamphlet How to Protect Your Children from Child Abuse: A Parent’s Guide, and earn the Cyber Chip award for your age.
Updates to the requirements are in the addendum below.

Adventures can be performed in any order. Achievement of each required and elective adventure is marked by a metal belt loop stamped with the symbol for that adventure; the Cub Scout wears it on his belt.
