The Tiger rank is for boys and girls who are in first grade or are age 7. To earn the TIGER badge, a boy or girl must complete six required adventures with their den or family and one elective adventure of their den or family's choosing.

The Bobcat badge is the first badge that is earned by all Tiger, Cub, and Webelos Scouts. This badge is required for all Scouts because it involves learning the Cub Scout Promise, the Law of the Pack and other fundamental aspects of Cub Scouting.

All Scouts Grade 1 and on begin by earning the Bobcat Badge!

  1. Complete each of the six required Adventures.

  2. In addition to the four required adventures listed above, complete at least one elective Adventure of your den's 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.)
