Welcome Tigers

Tiger Leaders and Adult partners. I'm going to use this forum to help you all keep on track and know whats coming up, as well as provide some suggestions.

Tiger Cubs
Tigers earn their Bobcat first and use the Cub Scout motto.
Tigers wear the blue uniform.

Requirements for the Tiger Cub Totem
Learn the Cub Scout motto:
Learn the Cub Scout sign
Learn the Cub Scout salute

A Tiger Cub must finish Bobcat before beginning to earn his Tiger Cub rank. But hey, once he has learned the Cub Scout Motto, Sign and Salute, the Immediate Recognition Emblem is already earned, it's a done deal except for presentation.

So even if the Law of the Pack or the Promise take a bit longer, the Immediate Recognition Emblem requirements are in fact already done. Applying a bucket of common sense, and as we favor instant recognition in Cubs, I would say go ahead and do the Immediate Recognition Emblem at the latest the next pack meeting, even if Bobcat is not yet completed.

After earning his Bobcat Badge, the Tiger Cub must then complete one Den Activity, one Family Activity, and one Go See It Activity within each of the five achievement areas to earn the Tiger Cub rank. He works with his adult partner to do this. As he completes each of the 15 requirements, he receives the appropriate orange, white, or black bead at the next den meeting to add to his totem.

What is Tiger Cubs?

T - Time spent building a stronger relationship with a boy and his family

I - Introducing a boy and his family to Scouting.

G - Getting to know others and one's self better.

E - Entering into a group; being part of something special.

R - Reaching out to one another and getting hands on experiences.

S - Sharing and discovering new things and ideas.

This is what Tiger Cubs is all about!
