Welcome to Tiger Den 5

Our Goals  The Tiger rank is for scouts who are in first grade or are age 7. To earn the Tiger badge, a scout must complete six required adventures with their den or family and one elective adventure of their den or family’s choosing. As the scout completes each adventure, they will receive the adventure loop for that adventure, which scouts can wear on their belt. When the scout has completed the seven required adventures, they can receive the Tiger badge. The Tiger badge is given to the scout’s adult partner at a pack meeting. Then, during a grand ceremony, the adult gives the badge to the scout.

After they have earned the Tiger badge, a Tiger Scout can work on the remaining 12 Tiger electives until they finish first grade. They can choose elective adventures that may show them new hobbies and teach them skills that will be useful during their Boy Scout years. When they complete an elective adventure, they receive an additional adventure loop to wear on their belt.

The Bobcat Trail

The first rank that EVERY boy MUST earn when entering the Cub Scouting Program is the Bobcat rank.

To earn the Bobcat rank the new Cub Scout must do the following:

1. Learn and say the Scout Oath, with help if needed.

        On my honor I will do my best
        To do my duty to God and my Country
        And to obey the Scout Law;
        To help other people at all times;
        To keep myself physically strong,
        Mentally awake, and morally straight.

2.    Learn and say the Scout Law, with help if needed.

A Scout is …
