As with all the Cub Scout ranks. All Bears must first earn their Bobcat badge before receiving any other awards.
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, as indicated below. Also, any achievements that they do NOT use to earn the Bear Badge may be used to earn Arrow Points.
(Note that these achievements, as were the Wolf activities, are primarily done at home and signed off by an adult family member after the boy has completed each one. The book is then shown to the Den Leader who records the progress and also signs the boy's book.)
The Bear Achievements are as follows, page number references to the Bear Book are in parenthesis.
If the Cub Scout has not previously earned the Bobcat Badge, it must be earned first.
