The Bear Program


Welcome to the Bear Den!

Den Number 8

Third Grade
or 8-9 years old
Asst. Den Leader

Tamara Di Cocco

Our Goals
In the Bear Den, there are four general achievement groups: God, Country, Family, and Self. There are 120 achievement tasks and your Bear Scout must complete a certain number of achievements in each of the four groups to earn his Bear Badge.  This year your son will grow in amazing ways. After earning his Bear Rank Badge, the scout may earn arrow points by completing additional achievement tasks.

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.

What the Bears are Doing...
"Hi Bears and prospective Bears! Looking forward to a great year.  When you have registered as a new Bear and have received and accepted your invitation to join Scoutlander, be sure to contact me using the Broadcast System. That way we can at least meet electronically and you can provide input and resources (for example, "my dad is a fireman and we can visit the firehouse") that can become part of our program plan. Our Den Meetings are on Scoutlander.  We don't meet every week and not always at the same location, so be sure to check the scoutlander calendar for bear meeting info.  Feel free to send me a message if you have questions."

We are in desperate need for a leader or co-leader so please feel free to call or e-mail if you may be interested!!

Your son will be encouraged by leaders and should be encouraged by parents to wear his uniform appropriately. The shirt should always be tucked in and orderly. He should understand the importance of representing the entire Boy Scout Organization while in uniform.

Sewing Time...
