|TIGER CUB SCOUT ACHIEVEMENTS
Starting the path to the Tiger Cub
Rank, a scout first earns the Bobcat badge - this is
the first step for all Cub Scouts.
But, a Tiger Cub will really earn his
Tiger Cub Totem first because its requirements are very simple and it gives him
something tangible to receive at the first pack meeting, even if he did not
complete all the Bobcat requirements. The Tiger Cub Totem requirements are:
He can then use the totem to display his achievement beads
as he earns them.
- Learn the Cub Scout Motto
- Learn the Cub Scout Sign
- Learn the Cub Scout Salute
The Tiger Cub badge is presented to boys who have
completed all 15 parts of the five separate achievements - five Family
activities, five Den activities, and five Go See It outings. Once a boy, or all
the boys in a den, earn their Tiger Cub badge, it should be presented to the
scout's adult partner at a pack meeting, who then presents it to the boy. The
badge is sewn on the left pocket of the Tiger Scout uniform.
The den activities and Go See It events should be
completed with the entire den. Attendance at den events is important - for both
the scout and adult partner. Of course, if a scout has a conflict with a den
event, he can perform that activity with his adult partner at some other time.
Tip: While your scout is working on
advancement, his den leader will track his progress on the Tiger Cub Den
Advancement Chart. Make this easier by tracking progress in the Tiger Trail
chart of the Tiger Scout handbook. Have your tiger bring his book to every den
meeting so the den leader can transfer marks from book to chart.
Tip: Keep in mind that participation is the
key goal of the Tiger Cub program. There is no level of competence or skill
required to earn the rank badge. Don't push your scout to succeed, just
participate and enjoy the time together.
