I've gotten copies of the new Wolf and Bear Cub Scout Books and looked
over the requirements for changes.
After a preliminary scan of the ACHIEVEMENTS Sections (not the
Electives/Arrow Points), I have found that there are a number of minor
wording changes in both books (including the Bobcat Requirements), but,
in general, there were no MAJOR changes, except as follows:
WOLF ACHIEVEMENT 7 - Your Living World:
This has been rewritten completely.
WOLF ACHIEVEMENT 8 - Cooking and Eating:
Items (a) and (b) have been rewritten to cover the "Food
Guide Pyramid" in place of the old "food groups".
WOLF ACHIEVEMENT 12 - Making Choices:
Items (h) and (i) have been deleted.
New Items (c) and (h) were added, and
Items (c,d,e,f, & g) are now (d,e,f,g, & i)
Items (a) & (b) are unchanged.
BEAR ACHIEVEMENT 16 - Building Muscles:
The following Note to Parents has been added:
"If a licensed physician certifies that the Cub Scout's physical
condition doesn't permit him to do three of the requirements in
this achievement, the Cubmaster and the pack committee may
authorize substitution of any three Arrow Point electives."
I'll look at the electives tonight, and will try to get the usscouts.org
advancement pages updated as quickly as possible. The pages can be
found at the following URL's, and when they are changed, I'll indicate
on the pages that they are the Requirements found in the 1998 edition of
