Traditional Scouting Programs ð
Cubs - An Introduction to Cub Scouting for 1st Grade Boys
Tiger Cubs have been members of Cub Scout packs for years, but the Tiger Cub
program has recently been given a whole new look, while keeping
its most important elements. A new advancement plan has been added to
create additional challenges and excitement for first-grade boys.
The Tiger Cub program is still a fun-filled, age-appropriate introduction to
Cub Scouting. Tiger Cubs still participate along with an adult partner,
and those adult partners share leadership in the Tiger Cub den.
Highlights of the Tiger Cub
Tiger Cubs and adult partners participate in den
and pack activities together.
A Tiger Cub den leader coordinates shared
leadership among the adult partners in the den. A Tiger Cub den leader
is required if a pack registers Tiger Cubs.
Tiger Cubs wear an orange uniform T-shirt, Nos.
83391-96, along with an optional, newly designed blue and orange cap, Nos.
The Tiger Cub badge, No. 80369, is earned after
completing five achievements grouped in three areas: den activity,
family activity and Go See It. After completing the rank of Tiger Cub,
boys may earn one Tiger Track bead when he completes 10 electives. There
is no limit to the number of Tiger Track beads a boy can earn.
Advancement is displayed on a Tiger Cub immediate
recognition kit, which is worn on the Tiger Cub belt.
The recommended monthly meeting pattern consists
or den, family, Go See It activities, and participation in the monthly pack
meeting. Suggested den meeting plans are included in Cub Scout
Program Helps, No. 34304D.
Tiger Cubs and adult partners work out of the
Tiger Cub Handbook, No. 34713, to complete achievements and electives, and
A complete description of the Tiger Cub program
can be found in the "Tiger Cub Program" chapter of the Cub Scout Leader
Book, No. 33221A.
Each pack should have one or more Tiger Cub dens,
each consisting of five to nine boys and adult partners.
The Tiger Cub den leaders are members of the pack
leadership team and receive support and coaching from the pack committee,
which includes the pack trainer and Cubmaster or assistant Cubmaster.
Tiger Cub badges should be presented in meaningful
pack meeting ceremonies.
Tiger Cub dens actively participate in pack
meetings and activities.
Tiger Cubs and their adult partners are the future
of your pack!
