Den Leader: Tom Carter

The Bear rank is for boys or girls  who have finished second grade (or who are 9 years old). To earn the Bear badge, a Scout must complete six required adventures and one elective adventure. The Scouts parent or guardian and den leader approves each requirement by signing their book, and the Scout receives an adventure loop for each adventure. When the scout has met all requirements, the Bear badge is presented to the Scout at the next pack awards ceremony. 

After a Scout has earned the Bear badge, a Bear Scout can work on the remaining 12 Bear electives until they finish third grade (or turn 10 years old). They can choose elective adventures that may show new hobbies and teach skills that will be useful during theur Scouting BSA years. When the Scout completes an elective adventure, they receive an additional adventure loop to wear on their belt.
