Wolf – Second Grade
A 8 year old boy or girl in the second grade joins Cub Scouting as a Wolf.
Our Wolf Program
Wolf is a family-oriented program! A group of six to eight boys or girls meet together in a group called a den. Dens meet approximately twice per month. Wolf scouts have fun participating in den meetings and outings while making memories together.
In addition to den meetings, Wolf scouts attend our monthly pack meetings and other exciting pack activities. Members of the whole family are welcome to participate in meetings and events!
Like all other new Cub Scouts, a Wolf must first earn their Bobcat rank. After completing the requirements for Bobcat they may go on to complete the requirements for the Wolf rank and the many
electives that are offered for the rank.

The uniform is an important part of the Wolf Cub program. It identifies the youth and adults with the program and gives them a sense of belonging to the den, to the pack, and to the Boy Scouts of America. Most youth love wearing their Wolf Cub uniform. They should wear it to all den meetings, pack meetings, and special pack activities.
The Wolf Cub uniform is the navy blue Cub Scout uniform shirt, with the yellow Wolf Cub neckerchief and slide. The official Wolf Cub cap and blue web belt with a Cub Scout buckle are also required.
Cub Scouts are provided with a Pack t-shirt as part of their membership. The Pack 142 t-shirt is to be worn during certain activities and outings.
The success of a Wolf Cub den depends on active, enthusiastic families working alongside a knowledgeable, well-trained den leader. The Wolf Cub den leader plans and carries out a year-round program of activities for the Wolf Cub den and gives the program continuity. Using the concept of shared leadership, the Wolf Cub den leader works with a different youth–adult partner team each month to plan den meetings, a Go See It outing, and the den’s part in the pack meeting. (Some teams may serve more than one month, depending on den size.)
Shared leadership is a key element of the Wolf Cub program because direct adult involvement is important for youth at this age. Through this sharing of leadership, each Cub Scout and adult partner team is given an opportunity to lead. Shared leadership also brings a wealth of knowledge and variety to the program as each host team has something different to bring to the program.
