A boy who is 7 years old or is in the first grade is a Tiger, and his adventures are found in the Tiger Handbook.
A 7 year old or boy in the first grade joins Cub Scouting with his parent or adult guardian. This is unique relative to other ranks in Cub Scouting. Tigers and their adult partners are just that, partners. They attend meetings together, go on adventures like field trips together, and complete requirements together.
Like all other new Cub Scouts, a Tiger must first earn his Bobcat rank. After completing the requirements for Bobcat he may go on to complete the requirements for the Tiger rank and the many electives that are offered for his rank.
- Complete each of the following Tiger required adventures with your den or family:
a. Backyard Jungle
b. Games Tigers Play
c. My Family’s Duty to God
d. Team Tiger
e. Tiger Bites
f. Tigers in the Wild
- Complete one Tiger elective adventure of your den or family’s choosing.
- With your parent or adult partner, complete the exercises in the pamphlet How to Protect Your Children From Child Abuse: A Parent’s Guide, and earn the Cyber Chip award for your age.*
*If your family does not have Internet access at home AND you do not have ready Internet access at school or another public place or via a mobile device, the Cyber Chip portion of this requirement may be waived by your parent or adult partner.
