About Bear Dens
We have 1 Bear Den
- Den 1 is lead by Kelly Benoit and Mark Benoit
Bear Scouts are boys, aged 8-9, and usually in 3rd grade. There are 24 Bear achievements in four categories. You must complete 12 of these to earn the Bear badge. These requirements are somewhat more difficult and challenging than those for Wolf rank. If you are brand new to Scouting, your first goal will be to achieve your Bobcat rank, which your leaders will go over with you at our first Den Meeting.
The Uniform and Supplies
You will need to buy a uniform for your boy as follows:
- Blue Scout Shirt (buy slightly large so he can reuse it for a few years). See this guide for information on the Cub Scout Uniform.
- Official Cub Scout Belt & Belt Buckle
- Bear Hat (optional)
- Official Uniform Blue Pants (optional)
- The numbers 106 patches
- World crest patch
- DEN 1,2 patch
- Mohegan Council shoulder patch
The den will provide each boy with the Bear Handbook, neckerchief and slide at registration or the first Pack meeting. Any patches, medals or awards earned during the year will also be provided by the pack. Click here for more information about Belt Loops and Pins.
Our Pack meetings will be held monthly usually on Friday evenings from 7:00-8:30 downstairs in St. Mary’s Hall. Pack meetings include all our Cub Scouts – Tigers, Wolves, Bears, and Webelos along with their families.
After earning the Bobcat badge, a boy may earn the Bear badge by completing 12 achievements in four different categories: God, Country, Family, and Self. This is an excellent Achievements reference.
