Our Goals  Much of the advancement for the Bear rank is done by the scout with his family outside of the den.  The parent signs off in the scout’s handbook and the Den Leader records the advancements from the handbook in our tracking Software.  The Bear program relies heavily on family involvement, but you will see this gradually change with the scout doing more with his den and more individual direction as he graduates to Webelos.
