Boys who are in the first grade or who are 7 years old are members of a Tiger den. Working with their parents, these Scouts earn their Bobcat badge, then start along the trail to Tiger rank.
On the path to earntheir Tiger badge, scouts must first meet the following requirements to earntheir Tiger Cub Totem, which is a tiger paw with four strings for beads that isworn on his right pocket.
- Learn the Cub Scout Motto: Do Your Best
- Learn the Cub Scout Sign
- Learn the Cub Scout Salute
As a boy finishes each part of the five Tiger Cub achievements, he earns an orange bead (for den activities), a white bead (for family activities), or a black bead (for "Go See Its"). When the boy has earned five beads of each color, he can receive his Tiger Cub badge. The Tiger Cub badge is given to the boy's adult partner at a pack meeting. Then, during a grand ceremony, the adult gives the badge to the boy. There are NO performance requirements for a boy in the Tiger Cub trail. Simplyparticipating and doing one's best in an activity constitutes completion.
