TIGER CUBS: First Graders / Seven-Year-Olds
Tiger Cub Motto: Search, Discover, Share.
Recognition is important to young boys. The Cub Scouting advancement plan provides fun for the boys, gives them a sense of personal achievement as they earn badges, and strengthens family understanding as adult family members work with boys on advancement projects.
There are five Tiger Cub achievement areas. The Tiger Cub, working with his adult partner, completes 15 requirements within these areas to earn the Tiger Cub badge. These requirements consist of an exciting series of indoor and outdoor activities just right for a boy in the first grade.
Tiger Cub dens meet two times per month. Meetings consist of a gathering activity, an activity to keep the boys engaged while everyone arrives, the opening which usually consists of the recitation of the cub scout motto and the Pledge of Allegiance, a sharing activity, based on "cub work" done at home and a den activity based on advancement or elective requirements.
Tiger Cub dens also participate in Go See Its, usually one time per month, where the boys and their adult partners visit places of interest. These outings may be part of the monthly theme or one of the advancement requirements.
Tiger cubs also attend the monthly pack meeting. The pack meetings, attended by all Tiger Cub, Bear Cubs, Wolf Cubs and Webelo dens, are where advancement badges and other achievements are recognized. The pack meetings also consist of a fun activity for all.
All activities are family friendly and siblings are welcome to attend, though some activities may be limited to the scouts.
