To receive the Tiger Cub rank, the Tiger Cub must complete all 15 parts of the following five achievements with you, his adult partner. You will approve each part after your boy does his best to finish it and sign where it says "Akela's OK."

Remember that there are no performance requirements for a boy. Simply participating and doing one's best in the activity constitutes completion.
