Cub Scout Bear Requirements | Rank Adventures

Cub Scout Bear requirements for rank include many great adventures. They are designed for our younger enrolled scouts to earn their Bear rank. Our Adventure CUBS manual includes guidance to complete the requisite core Bear Rank Adventures needed for your scout to earn the Bear rank. However, you can pick and choose to delve into the adventures individually.

The CUBS program is designed to be extremely easy to use. Materials are often items you have at home already or are easy and inexpensive to source. Each adventure begins with a list of materials you should acquire. Let’s take a look at some examples:

Intro | The adventure is introduced and the supplies are listed.

Printables | Any helpful printables are included or linked to a useful outside source.

Other Information | Some adventure requirements do not lend themselves to being “bagged.” We include relevant links to help these situations.

If you are using our program manual to complete Cub Scout Bear requirements, at the beginning of each adventure are the requirements to complete the adventure and the corresponding number of paws to color in as you go along. You can use this to help you track and your scout’s achievements. Likewise, there is a place in the rank book to track completions.

When all the paws are colored in transfer the information to Scoutbook and your pack leadership can approve it remotely. Or, share it with your scout’s den or pack leader – per pack advancement procedures.
