Our Goals

In the Bear Den, 3rd grade boys and girls begin to take on more personal responsibility. To earn his/her Bear Badge, each child will learn about safe use of tools and begin developing confidence in skills required for outdoor activities such as camping and safe knife handling. This is the year your Scout will grow in amazing ways.

Summary

Much of the advancement for the Bear rank is done by the scout with his/her family outside of the den. Parents can sign off on achievements in Scoutbook (the BSA's advancment tracking software) as they are completed. The Bear program relies heavily on family involvement, with emphasis on the scout doing more with his/her den and more individual direction as s/he graduates to Webelos.
