Bobcat Trail

Bobcat Trail for Cub Scouts

When you join the Cub Scouts, no matter how old you are you become a Bobcat first. You must complete all eight steps to become a Bobcat:


Learn the SCOUT OATH
and tell what it means

"On my honor, I will do my best to do my duty to God and my country, and to obey the Scout Law; to help other people at all times; to keep myself physically strong, mentally awake and morally straight."


Promise... To promise means you will keep your word when you tell someone you will do something. People will trust you when you keep your promises.

Do my best... We are not all alike, so when we do our best it means that we have tried as hard as we can.

Do my duty... We know what is right and what is wrong so we know what we should do at all times. When we do our duty to God, this means we practice our religion at home and at our place of worship. When we do our duty to our country, we stand up for our country. Be proud that you are an American. Stand up for your rights and the rights of all Americans.

Help other people... Do things for people even when you are not asked. Be good to people; help them and don’t expect to be rewarded.

Obey the Scout Law... Be a good Cub Scout and follow the 12 points of the Scout Law.

Physically Strong... Take care of body by eating the right foods and getting plenty of exercise.

Mentally Awake... Take care of your mind by working hard in school, learning all you can and asking questions.

Morally Straight... Take care of your spirit by doing the right thing and living your life honestly.

Make the CUB SCOUT SIGN and tell what it means.

 Make this sign with your right hand. Hold your arm up straight. Do not bend your elbow.

The two fingers stand for the two points of the Promise-to help other people and to obey. They look like a wolf’s ears ready to listen to Akela.

When you say the Cub Scout Promise or the Law of the Pack, give the Cub Scout sign. This is the sign of Cub Scouts all over the world.



Make the CUB SCOUT HANDSHAKE and tell what it means.



When you shake hands, use your right hand. Put the first fingers along the inside of your friend’s wrist-This means that you are brothers in Cub Scouting and that both of you help other people and obey the Law of the Pack.



Do Your Best. This means to try as hard as you can in everything you do.


Give the CUB SCOUT SALUTE and tell what it means.


The Cub Scout salute means you respect our country’s flag. Salute with your right hand. If you are wearing your Cub Scout cap, place your two fingers on the brim. If you do not have a cap, place your two fingers over your eyebrow.
