The Wolf rank is for boys and girls who have finished first grade (or who are 8 years old). To earn the Wolf badge, a scout must complete the required adventures and one elective adventure. The scout's parent or guardian and den leader approves each requirement by signing the book, and the scout receives an adventure loop for each adventure. When the scout has met all requirements, the Wolf badge is presented to his or her parent or guardian at the Blue and Gold Banquet. During an impressive ceremony, the badge is presented to the scout.
After he or she has earned the Wolf badge, a Wolf Scout can work on the remaining Wolf electives until he or she finishes second grade (or turns 9 years old). The scout can choose elective adventures that may show new hobbies and teach new skills. When an elective adventure is completed, a new adventure loop can be worn on the belt.
