Cub Scout Tiger Cub Rank

These are the requirements as they appear
in the 2001 edition of the Cub Scout Tiger Cub Handbook,
and became effective on June 1, 2001.

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

* Learn the Tiger Cub Motto: Search, Discover, Share
* Learn the Cub Scout Sign
* Learn the Cub Scout Salute

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:

1. Making My Family Special
2. Where I Live
3. Keeping Myself Healthy and Safe
4. How I Tell It
5. 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.
* He earns a BLACK bead for each required GO SEE IT Activity.

Remember, there are NO performance requirements for a boy. Simply participating and doing one's best in an activity constitutes completion.

1. Making My Family Special

Practice the Pledge of Allegiance with your den, and participate in a den or pack flag ceremony.

3. Keeping Myself Healthy and Safe

4. How I Tell It

At a family meal, have each family member take turns telling the others one thing that happened to him or her that day. Remember to practice being a good listener while you wait for your turn to talk.
o Character Connection: Respect
* 4D - Den Activity
Play "Tell It Like It Isn't"
* 4G - Go See It Activity

5. Let's Go Outdoors
This achievement is also part of Cub Scouting's Leave No Trace Award.

After completing the fifteen Achievements, the Tiger Cub is awarded the Tiger Cub Patch. The patch is affixed to the reverse side of the Tiger Cub Totem until he advances to the Bobcat Rank and begins working on his Wolf Rank. At that point the Tiger Cub and Bobcat Rank patches are sewn on the Blue Cub Scout Uniform shirt.

Also, after completing the achievements, the Tiger Cub can be awarded Tiger Track Beads, which are YELLOW disks attached to the Totem. One bead is awarded for each group of TEN Electives the Tiger Cub completes. A boy can work on both Achievements and electives concurrently, but he can't receive Tiger Track beads until he has earned the Tiger Cub Badge.
