WELCOME TO CUB SCOUTING: EARNING THE TIGER RANK
A boy who is 7 years old or is in the first grade is a Tiger, and his adventures are found in the Tiger Handbook.
A 7 year old or boy in the first grade
joins Cub Scouting with his parent or adult guardian. This is unique
relative to other ranks in Cub Scouting. Tigers and their adult partners
are just that, partners. They attend meetings together, go on
adventures like field trips together, and complete requirements
Like all other new Cub Scouts, a Tiger must first earn his Bobcat rank.
After completing the requirements for Bobcat he may go on to complete
the requirements for the Tiger rank and the many electives that are
offered for his rank.
- Complete each of the following Tiger required adventures with your den or family:
a. Backyard Jungle
b. Games Tigers Play
c. My Family’s Duty to God
d. Team Tiger
e. Tiger Bites
f. Tigers in the Wild
- Complete one Tiger elective adventure of your den or family’s choosing.
- With your parent or adult partner, complete the exercises in the
pamphlet How to Protect Your Children From Child Abuse: A Parent’s
Guide, and earn the Cyber Chip award for your age.*
*If your family does not have Internet
access at home AND you do not have ready Internet access at school or
another public place or via a mobile device, the Cyber Chip portion of
this requirement may be waived by your parent or adult partner.
|For each adventure, the Tiger and adult partner team must complete
the requirements as outlined in the Tiger Cub Scout Handbook.
Requirement 7 of Bobcat and requirement 3 of Tiger are identical. If a
Cub Scout earns his Bobcat
rank during the same year that he begins working on his Tiger rank, he needs to complete the requirement only one time.
The adult partner acknowledges the
completion of each achievement part by signing the boy’s handbook
(Akela’s OK). The den leader also signs each boy’s handbook (Den
Leader’s OK) and records progress in the den’s advancement records. The
Tiger Scouts also keep track of their own advancement using the
Adventure Tracking section in the back of their handbooks, and under the
guidance of the den leader, they can also keep a record of their
individual progress on a den advancement chart and den doodle.
