Akela is the name given to the Cub Scout's parent or guardian, the caring adult guiding the scout along the Cub Scouting trail. Akela is responsible for acknowledging completion of each adventure requirement by signing and dating the appropriate spot in the Wolf's handbook. There is also a spot for the Wolf Den Leader to sign for each requirement. The Adventure Tracking pages in the back of the Wolf handbook can be used by the Wolf to track progress all in one spot, and some dens use advancement charts or den doodles to publicly display advancement.

A Wolf that has fulfilled all rank requirements still has a lot more adventure waiting. The scout can continue to complete elective adventures with Akela or his den, or at district and council hosted events. Some scouts set a goal to earn the remaining dozen adventure belt loops before moving on to a Bear den.
