Cub Scout Pack 4173
(Guntersville, Alabama)
ScoutLander Contact Our Pack Member Login

A boy's first step after registering as a Cub Scout, regardless of his age, is to pass the Bobcat requirements.

They are as follows: 

  1. THE CUB SCOUT PROMISE - and its meaning.

"I .....(name).... promise to do my best
To do my duty to God and my country,
To help other people, and
To obey the Law of the Pack."

  1. THE LAW OF THE PACK - and its meaning.

"The Cub Scout follows Akela.
The Cub Scout helps the pack go.
The pack helps the Cub Scout Grow.
The Cub Scout gives goodwill."


 "Do Your Best."


 "WE 'll BE LOyal Scouts"

  1. SHOW THE CUB SCOUT SIGN and tell what it means
  • Make the sign with your right hand, first two fingers raised.
  • Hold your arm straight up.
  • The two raised fingers look like the sharp ears of the wolf listening to Akela, his leader.
  1. GIVE THE CUB SCOUT SALUTE and tell what it means
  • Salute with your right hand. Hold your first two fingers close together.
  • Touch the tips to your cap. Touch your eyebrow if you are not wearing a cap.
  • This is the way to show respect to your leaders.
  • You salute the flag to show respect to our country.
  • And you can greet another Cub Scout this way.
  1. SHOW THE CUB SCOUT HANDSHAKE and tell what it means

When you shake hands with another Cub Scout,
place the first two fingers of your right hand
along the inside of his right wrist.

The Tiger Cub Trail

The Tiger Cub badge is for boys who have completed all 15 parts of the five achievements, that is, five family activities, five den activities, and five Go See It outings. During an impressive ceremony, the Tiger Cub badge is presented to the adult partner at a pack meeting, who in turn presents the badge to the boy. The badge is affixed to the Tiger Cub belt totem in the recessed area.
While your boy is working on advancement, you can help. Besides signing his handbook as Akela once he has done his best, let your den leader know of any completed parts of achievements at your next den meeting. The den leader will keep a record of your boy's individual progress on the Tiger Cub Den Advancement Chart. In addition, your boy, with your help, will keep track of his own advancement on the Tiger Trail chart found on page 152 of his handbook. This encourages him and helps him see his progress toward the Tiger Cub rank.
The advancement requirements are written in such a way as to give you room to customize activities for your boy and your den. There are no performance requirements for Tiger Cubs. Boys should never be "tested" or placed in a position where they will not be successful. Simply participating in the activities and doing his best constitutes completion.
The den activities and 'Go See It' outings are intended to be completed with the den. If a Tiger Cub is unable to participate in an activity because of illness or a conflict, however, you may work with him to complete these requirements. For your boy to receive the full benefit of the program, it is important for you, his adult partner, to make every effort to attend meetings regularly.
At the end of the school year, he will graduate into a Wolf Cub Scout den. Later, he will be in a Bear den, and then he'll become a Webelos Scout.
The following requirement items are prefaced with the letters "F," "C," or "G." These denote:
    • F = A "FAMILY" oriented requirement
    • = A "FAMILY" oriented requirement
    • D = A "DEN" oriented requirement
    • = A "DEN" oriented requirement
    • G = A "GO SEE IT" oriented requirement (i.e. field trip)
    • = A "GO SEE IT" oriented requirement (i.e. field trip)
