Mary, What you described goes against what is practiced by our district
and what I've practiced. Pack 170 purposefully graduated our Tigers in
May, as it seems many of the list members do, so that the Tigers can
attend the District Day Camp as Wolfs. At Day Camp, my new Wolf
(graduated Tiger) earned 4 belt loops. They can't earn belt loops as
Tigers, but if they've graduated - then they may.
Belt loops, I'm finding are a great way to motivate those Scouts who may
not be able to see a goal as far ahead as Rank. I have a couple who did
not (may not) earn their Wolf, but they will have a couple belt loops.
