How it Works
This is a big adventure for a boy, one the Boy Scouts of America hopes all boys will complete. The Bobcat trail has only seven tracks; the Wolf's trail is much longer than the Bobcat's. To earn the Wolf rank a Cub Scout must complete 58 tasks out of a possible 74 tasks that are offered in the book.
When a boy's parent has okayed the tracks your boy has filled in for all twelve achievements in his Wolf handbook, he may become a Wolf Cub Scout. The Progress Towards Ranks badge is available as an incentive during the Wolf program to encourage a Cub on his achievement work. How quickly a boy progresses is up to him and you. He should do his best to complete each track, that's part of the promise he made to become a Bobcat and it is the Cub Scout Motto - DO YOUR BEST. Don't okay a track if you both know he can do a better job. Go on to something else, then come back to the problem track. The important thing is to keep him interested.
