Earning Your Bobcat Badge

To earn the Bobcat rank the new Cub Scout does the following:

  1. Learn and say the SCOUT OATH, with help if needed:

    “On my honor, I will do my best
    To do my duty to God and my Country and to obey the Scout Law;
    To help other people at all times;
    To keep myself physically strong, mentally awake, and morally straight. “

  2. Learn and say the Scout Law, with help if needed.

    “A Scout is:
    Trustworthy, Loyal, Helpful
    Friendly, Courteous, Kind
    Obedient, Cheerful, Thrifty
    Brave, Clean, and Reverent.”

  3. ¬†Show the CUB SCOUT SIGN. Tell what it means.Make the sign with your right hand and with your arm held straight up. The two fingers stand for the Scout Oath and the Scout Law. They look like a wolf’s ears ready to listen to Akela. Give the Cub Scout Sign when you say the Scout Oath or Scout Law.
