After the scout has earned his Bobcat badge, he can start along the Wolf trail.  The Wolf program is for boys who have completed first grade. To earn the Wolf badge, the scout must pass twelve achievements involving simple physical and mental skills.

At the end of the Wolf program, the Wolf Cub den will take part in a ceremony at a pack meeting.  This ceremony marks the transition to the next level of Cub Scouting - a Bear den.
