The Tiger Cub program gives parents an opportunity to provide their children with a safe, structured, and nurturing environment. Tiger Cubs and their adult partners have fun together while developing closer family relationships.
Tiger Cubs earn immediate recognition by learning the first three requirements for the Bobcat badge: the Cub Scout motto, Cub Scout salute, and Cub Scout sign. When a Tiger Cub has accomplished these tasks, he should be awarded his Tiger Cub immediate recognition emblem at a pack meeting. The emblem is worn buttoned to the right pocket of the uniform shirt. Tiger Cubs then complete the remaining requirements for the Bobcat badge, which will be presented at their next pack meeting.
Tiger Cub Handbook outlines achievements to be completed in five areas, each of which includes one family activity, one den activity, and one Go See It outing. As each of the 15 achievements is completed, the boy is awarded a bead during a simple den meeting ceremony. These beads go on the first three strands of the Tiger Cub immediate recognition emblem. When all of these achievements are completed, the boy has earned the Tiger Cub badge, which is worn sewn on the left pocket of the uniform shirt.
Once a boy has earned the Tiger Cub badge, he can earn Tiger Track beads by completing elective activities described in the Tiger Cub Handbook. When a boy completes 10 electives, he has earned a Tiger Track bead, which is placed on a fourth strand of the immediate recognition emblem. The Tiger Tracks are presented to the adult partners at the next pack meeting, who in turn present them to the boys. As you can see the adult partners are closely involved in the Tiger Cub's activities and advancement.
