Tiger Cub Requirements

Before Earning The Tiger Cub Rank, The Bobcat Rank must first be earned.

To begin his path to the Tiger Cub Rank, a boy must do the following to earn the Tiger Cub Totem:

Learn the Cub Scout Motto: Do Your Best
Learn the Cub Scout Sign (See also Bobcat Rank)
Learn the Cub Scout Salute (See Also Bobcat Rank)

Once he earns the Totem, to earn the Tiger Cub rank the Tiger Cub Scout must complete a Family Activity, a Den Activity, and a “Go See It” Activity in each of five Achievement Areas:

Making My Family Special
Where I Live
Keeping Myself Healthy and Safe
How I Tell It
Let’s Go Outdoors

As he completes each Achievement, he is awarded a bead which is hung from the Totem.

He earns a WHITE bead for each required FAMILY Activity.
He earns an ORANGE bead for each required DEN Activity.
