The Wolf rank is for children who have finished first grade (or who are 8 years old). To earn the Wolf badge, a Scout must complete six required adventures and one elective adventure. His parent or guardian and den leader approves each requirement by signing his book, and the Scout receives an adventure loop for each adventure.
After earning the Wolf badge, a Wolf Scout can work on the remaining 12 Wolf electives until finishing second grade (or turns 9 years old).
The Wolf Scout receives an additional adventure loop to wear on his belt with each elective adventure completed.
