Bobcat Beginnings

September 28, 2022 | Earning the Bobcat Rank is among a scout’s first achievements in Cub Scouts. The Bobcat Rank teaches scouts and scouters the basic values and commitments of scouting. (This is not required for Kindergarteners in the Lion Den.)

The Bobcat badge is worn on the left pocket and is the top of the diamond-shaped collection of ranks of Cub Scouts before Webelos.
