Bear Den

Welcome to the Pack 273 Bear Den.  To earn the Bear Badge, a Cub Scout must complete 12 achievements out of a possible 24 that are offered in the book. The achievements are grouped in 4 major areas, GOD, COUNTRY, FAMILY, and SELF. Within each group, a required number of achievements must be completed. Also, any achievements that they do NOT use to earn the Bear Badge may be used to earn Arrow Points.

Once the Cub Scouts achieve the Bear rank they will receive the Bear Badge for their uniform. The Cub Scout can continue on the Bear trail by performing Bear Electives. In this rank the Cub Scout can go back and do requirements from the ACHIEVEMENTS section of the book and use them as requirements for arrow points, as long as they do not count any requirements from achievements that they used to earn the Bear Badge
