Our Goals To earn the Bear badge, a scout must complete six required adventures and one elective adventure. Their parent or guardian and den leader approves each requirement by signing their book, and the scout receives an adventure loop for each adventure. When the scout has met all requirements, the Bear badge is presented to their parent or guardian at the next pack meeting. During an impressive ceremony, the parent or guardian then presents the badge to the scout.
After they have earned the Bear badge, a Bear Scout can work on the remaining 12 Bear electives until they finish third grade. They can choose elective adventures that may show them new hobbies and teach them skills that will be useful during Boy Scout years. When they complete an elective adventure, they receive an additional belt adventure loop to wear on their belt.
