The Tiger Trail (getting started)


A Tiger first works on earning the Bobcat badge. After completing the requirements for Bobcat they go on to complete the requirements for the Tiger rank and the many electives that are offered.

Note: Once a Bobcat, always a Bobcat… Once he earns his Bobcat Badge he can skip it in other handbooks as he advance through the ranks.   


The Tiger Trail 
This is how our Scouts follow the Tiger Trail to receive their Tiger Badge…
      1. Complete each of the six required Adventures with your den or family:
      2. In addition to the four required adventures listed above, complete at least one elective Adventure of your den or family’s choosing.
      3. With your parent, guardian, or other caring adult, complete the exercises in the pamphlet How to Protect Your Children From Child Abuse: A Parent’s Guide.
      4. Earn the Cyber Chip award for your age. (The Cyber Chip portion of this requirement may be waived by your parent or guardian if you do not have access to the internet.)
      For each adventure, the Tiger and adult partner team must complete the requirements as outlined in the Tiger Cub Scout Handbook. Requirement 7 of Bobcat and requirements 3 of Tiger are identical. If a Cub Scout earns the Bobcat badge during the same year they need only to complete the requirement one time.


After completing the fifteen Achievements, the Tiger Cub is awarded the Tiger Cub Patch.

Also, after completing the achievements, your Tiger will then be awarded Belt Loops. A Scout will earn 7 belt loops as a Tiger.  A Tiger can up to 19 belt loops by completing Tiger Electives.

Note to Parents
Our Pack uses “TroopTrack” software to track the progress of your Scout.  The Den Leaders have access to the software.  Please make sure your child gets credit for completing activities.  A report on your child’s progress can be printed upon request.  We also use TroopTrack to purchase appropriate badges and awards.  Make sure you are getting proper credit (by working with your Den Leader) and the recognition will come at each of the Pack Meetings.  TroopTrack will track your child’s progress for as long as they are in the Pack.
