Fast Tracks for Bear Cub Scouts are your first 16 Den Meeting plans
designed to help active Bear Cubs earn their rank by February.
Also see the Cub Scout Leader Resources and the Den Leader Getting Started Guide.

Fast Tracks is a series of den meeting plans (two den meetings per month) designed to
be used in conjunction with the youth handbooks. By following the these plans, active
Scouts can earn their Tiger, Wolf, Bear, or Webelos rank by February, usually in time for
the Blue & Gold Banquet. After these meetings, Scouts continue to meet to work on other
electives, Belt Loops and Pins, and other Cub Scout Awards through the rest of the year.
All Cub Scouts must first earn their Bobcat Badge.

Use the Fast Tracks as-is or as a resource for your own meeting plans. MeritBadge.Org
offers a wealth of other resources to get you started, Belt Loop and Pin Worksheets and
Cub Scout Monthly Themes with Program Helps! Also see the Fast Tracks FAQ.

            Active Scouts can earn their Bear Rank in five months.
