Wolf Cub Scouting is for boys in second grade.
The founder of Scouting, Sir Robert Baden-Powell of England, based his ideas for Cub Scouts on a Rudyard Kipling book called Mowgli's Brothers. The story is part of Kipling's Jungle Books series and is set in India.
In the story, a young boy is separated from his family when his village is attacked by a tiger named Shere Khan. A family of wolves finds him and raises him. When the boy grows older, the family asks Akela, the great leader of the wolf pack, if he may join the pack. The pack council allows him to join so that they can protect him from Shere Khan and other dangers in the jungle.
Once a boy receives his Bobcat badge he can then begin the Wolf Trail, where he must complete a series of 12 Requirements to earn the Wolf badge. Once you have received the Wolf badge you are eligible to receive Wolf Arrow Points
