Third Grade (or 8-9 Years Old)
Welcome to the Bear Den
In the Bear Den, there are 5 adventures to travel: Bear Claws, Bear Necessities, Fellowship and Duty to God, Fur Feathers and Ferns, Grin and Bear it, Paws for Action. Each of these adventures will help your son grow as a young man, and work his way towards earning the Bear rank.
Much of the advancement for the Bear rank can be done by the scout with his family outside of the den. The parent signs off in the scout's handbook and the Den Leader records the advancements from the handbook in our tracking Software. The Bear program relies heavily on family involvement, but you will see this gradually change with the scout doing more with his den and more individual direction as he graduates to Webelos.
