The Tiger Scout program is for boys who have completed Kindergarten (or are age 7).

"The Bobcat badge is earned prior to all other ranks. If a boy joins Cub Scouting as a Wolf, Bear, or Webelos, he must earn the Bobcat badge first before receiving any other award or rank. - Advancement Policies, pp. 18-21 For Tiger through Bear ranks, if the activity is completed outside of the den meeting, the parent, adult partner, or another trusted adult should sign in the boy’s handbook, indicating the Cub Scout has done his best to complete the requirement. The den leader then approves that requirement after consultation with the family or the boy to confirm completion. If the requirement is completed in a den meeting, the den leader signs in both places. Den leaders may, however, ask an assistant or parent who helps at meetings to play the role of “Akela” and assist with the approvals. For Webelos and Arrow of Light ranks, the den leader signs for approval of all requirements, unless the den leader delegates this responsibility.

Tigers can complete Tiger Scout Adventures at any time. The Tiger Scout uniform has six parts.

“A boy on joining wants to begin Scouting right away.”
Robert Baden-Powell

History of the Tiger program

In 1982, Tiger Cubs was started as a "Pack-associated" program with Tiger Cubs being 7 years old. They wore special orange T-shirts with iron-on "badges". Beginning in 1996, when a Tiger Cub graduated to the Pack, he was presented with a "Tiger Cub BSA" strip that would be worn just below the right pocket of the blue uniform shirt: Image:TigerCubsBSApatch.jpg When the grade-based rank system was phased in in 1986, the age for beginning Tiger Cubs was lowered to First grade. In 2001, the current diamond-shaped Tiger Cub rank badge was introduced. In 2007, the Tiger Cub Den was fully integrated into the pack; Tiger Cubs now wear the blue Cub Scout shirt. In 2015, "Tiger Cub" was renamed "Tiger" with a new image and program requirements. The individual rank parts now receive a belt loop for the immediate reward, with the actual rank presentation occurring at a Court of Honor.
