The next step on the advancement trail is:
Tiger Cub learns the Cub Scout motto, the Cub Scout sign, and the Cub Scout Salute he earns his Tiger Cub immediate recognition emblem Belt Totem.
To earn the Tiger rank a Cub Scout must
complete all 15 parts of the 5 Achievements that
are offered in the book. Tiger Rank Requirements (366 KB)
Note that these activities are in three parts:
- a Family Activity
- a Den activity
- a Go See It Outing.
As the Tiger Cub finishes achievements he earns a totem bead. There are:
- White beads for the Family activities,
- Orange beads for the Den activities,
- and Black beads for the Go See It activities for a total of 15 beads (5 of each color).
The totem has 4 lanyard strands for the three
colored beads and the last strand is for the
Tiger Tracks (yellow circle beads bought separately).
For every 10 electives he completes the Tiger is awarded 1 Tiger Track bead. These can be worked on at the same time as the Achievements but the Tiger can’t receive the Tiger Track beads until he earns his Tiger Cub Badge.
(Note the adult partner approves the completion of the requirements and the book is then shown to the Den Leader who records the progress and also signs the boy's book).
Also, I have created an overview Cub Advancement Trail sheet that can help you answer questions at Round-ups, Pack Meetings or Den Meetings. Check out the Cub Advancement Trail in color (979KB) and the Cub Advancement Trail in B & W(488KB)
