No matter what age or grade a boy joins Cub Scouting, he must first earn the rank of Bobcat. Requirements for earning this rank include:
- Learn and say the Cub Scout motto, the Scout Oath, and the Scout Law, and tell what they mean;
- Show the Cub Scout sign, salute, and handshake and tell what they mean; and
- With your parent or guardian complete the exercises in the pamphlet How to Protect Your Children from Child Abuse: A Parent’s Guide.
For a step-by-step guide to these requirements, view the Bobcat Learning Unit page on our Facebook group!
