The den meetings will cover most, but not all, of the Bear badge requirements. Here are a list of activities to do at home as they will not be covered as a group
If this is your first year scouting, start by completing the Bobcat requirements. (See Bear handbook.)
Complete all of the following.
1) Read, commit to, and sign the Level I Internet Safety Pledge. (BSA Cyber Chip blue card)
4) Show and tell your family what you have learned.
Note: All Cyber Chips will expire annually. Each Scout will need to “recharge” the chip by going back to the Netsmartz Recharge area. This space will hold new information, news, and a place for the Scout to recommit to net safety and netiquette. Then, with the unit leader, the Scout can add the new date to the Cyber Chip card or certificate.
How to Protect Your Children From Child Abuse: A Parent’s Guide
With your parent, guardian, or other caring adult, complete the exercises in the pamphlet. (See Bear handbook.)
Paws for Action
After the October visit to the Police Department (tentative) complete either 3B or 3C.
3B) Make a list of emergency numbers and discuss with your family where the list should be kept. Show your family that you know how to call for help in an emergency. Talk with your family about people who could help you if a parent is not available.
3C) With your family, develop a plan to follow in case of an emergency, and practice the plan at least three times. Your family can determine the emergency, or you can develop several plans.

A) Earn the religious emblem of your faith that is appropriate for your age, if you have not done so already.
