Third grade children form the Bear den. New Cub Scouts will begin with their Bobcat rank, but all the kids will have fun earning their Bear adventure loops.
Additionally, beginning at the Bear rank , Cub Scouts may earn the Whittling Chip. This is a required training for Scouts in order to use and carry a pocketknife during Scouting activities. The Scout must demonstrate to their adult leader the safe way to use a knife as a tool.
This group is a pretty solid mix of experienced an first year Scouts who continually find a way to balance their schedule with both Scouting and other [sports] activities throughout the year.
