The first rank every Scout must earn when entering the Cub Scouting Program is the Bobcat rank, regardless of age, grade, or whether starting out as a Tiger, Wolf, Bear, or Webelos.
These requirements are meant to demonstrate the Scout is making a commitment to participating in the scouting program.

To earn the Bobcat Badge the Scout must complete these eight tracks of Akela:

  1. LEARN AND SAY THE CUB SCOUT PROMISE

"I ____(name)____ promise to do my best
To do my duty to God and my country,
To help other people, and
To obey the Law of the Pack."

... AND COMPLETE THE HONESTY CHARACTER CONNECTION.

    1. Know: Discuss these questions with your family. What is a promise? What does it mean to "keep your word?" What does honesty mean? What does it mean to "do your best?"
