Tiger Adventure Requirements: Tigers in the Wild

This is a preview of one of the new Cub Scout requirements which will go into effect in the 2015-2016 program year. See the BSA Program Updates page for complete information.

Tigers in the Wild is one of the Tiger CORE Adventure Requirements.  In the current Tiger Cub program, it is most similar to Tiger Achievement 5 – Lets Go Outdoors and the Hiking Belt Loop and Pin.

For this adventure, Tiger Cubs and their adult partners learn some outdoor skills, go hiking, and participate in other outdoor activities.

The requirement for this adventure are shown below. Upon completion of this adventure, Tiger Cubs will receive a belt loop.

  3. Do the following:
    1. Listen while your leader reads the Outdoor Code. Talk about how you can be clean in your outdoor manners.
    2. Listen while your leader reads the Leave No Trace Principles for Kids. Discuss why you should “Trash Your Trash.”
    3. Apply the Outdoor Code and Leave No Trace Principles for Kids on your Tiger den and pack outings. After one outing, list the things you did to demonstrate the principles you discussed.
  4. While on the hike, find three different kinds of plants, animals, or signs that animals have been on the trail. List what you saw in your Tiger handbook.
  5. Participate in an outdoor pack meeting or pack campout campfire. Sing a song and act out a skit with your Tiger den as part of the program.
