The Tiger Cub Program

Tiger Cubs BSA gives parents an opportunity to provide their children with a safe, structured, and nurturing environment. Tiger Cubs and their adult partners have fun together while developing closer family relationships. Scouting can provide positive, enriching experiences and activities to complement a child's formal classroom education. Scouting and education share the common goal of helping young people grow into self-reliant, dependable, and caring adults.

Tiger Cubs BSA is a simple, fun, easy-to-operate program that helps a boy and his adult partner gain a better understanding of and an appreciation for the community environment in which they live, and even the world at large.

Tiger Cubs BSA offers an opportunity for boys to enter the Scouting family at an important age. Research has shown that early involvement in values-based programs is vital to strong character development. The longer a boy stays in Scouting, the more likely he is to develop the values and skills needed to become an ethical and productive citizen.

The Tiger Cub dens are a part of the Pack. Tiger Cub dens meet twice a month and attendance at all pack meetings is urged. There are Tiger Cub resource books and program helps available for the Tiger Cub Den Leaders. Tiger Cubs are not first-grade Cub Scouts. Tiger Cubs BSA introduces boys and their adult partners to the excitement of Cub Scouting as they "Search, Discover, and Share" together.

The Tiger Cub program has a series of "Big Ideas" that are designed to fulfill many specific purposes. The Tiger Cub program is designed for First Grade boys and the ideas are geared to their level. They are also arranged to help the boy and his adult partner interact together in a positive way.
