Tiger Graduation



Tiger Cub Graduation
Circle 10 Council

Cubmaster: Tonight, we honor our Tiger Cubs. Will __________, our Tiger Cub Group Coach please come and introduce them.  (Tigers and adults come to the front.)

Group Coach lights the candles saying:

White is for the Purity of Living.
Black is for the unknown, the fear and doubt.
Orange is for knowledge, joy and confidence.

These are the colors of the Tigers. You have completed the tenure of the Tiger Cub program.  Adults here is the patch for your Tigers.  Please place it on his right pocket. Tigers here is the pin for your adult partner who worked with you through your deeds as Tigers.  Place their pin on their collar.  Here, too, is the certificate for all to see.  As your Group Coach, I bid you farewell and show you the path of a new challenge.  The challenge of Cub Scouts.  Each step you take tells you what you must learn, so you can earn your next rank.  Walk the bridge of Cub Scouts and meet you new leaders.

Across the bridge stands the Cubmaster, Den Leader and Den Chief

Cubmaster: Welcome to Pack _____.  This is your Den Leader and den chief of den _____.  Your meetings are at ______, at ____ p.m., at location_____.

The Den Leader puts the Cub Scout (Wolf-yellow) neckerchief on the Tigers.  (Optional, each pack or leader decides.)

Den Chief hands each boy the Wolf book and says, “These are your next challenges.  Read and do each requirement of the Bobcat.  When you are done, you will earn the Bobcat rank patch.  The Cubmaster asks each boy and adult team to sit with the pack.

Ceremony ends with a “Round of Applause”.


Tiger/Webelos Ceremony
Circle 10 Council

Personnel: Cubmaster, Webelos, Tiger Cubs, Parents, Akela and Den Leader

Props: Table with candles for each boy with their names in front of candles

Cubmaster: Tonight we have the pleasure of welcoming new Cub Scouts into the pack.  Parents and graduating Tiger Cubs, would you please be escorted forward by our Webelos.

Assistant CM: The Webelos Scout provided a path for you to follow into the pack and now he relinquishes his place in the pack to you.

(Webelos Scouts hand lighted candles to boys and return to their seats.)

Den Leader: You and your parents both were asked to come forward.  This symbolizes that the family is a necessary base for Cub Scouting and that Cub Scouting supports a strong family unit.  The candles you received represent the promise of every Cub Scout to “Do Your Best.”

Do you promise to Do Your Best?

Tiger Cubs: We Do.

(Den Leader instructs Tigers to blow out the candles and return them to the table.)

(As the right of the group Akela appears in costume.)

Akela: (To Cubmaster) My Brother, have these new cubs prepared to join our Pack?

Cubmaster: They have by completing the Tiger Cub program.  As we call your name, please step forward to receive your graduation patch and certificate.

(Call out names and distribute graduation materials.

After all have been distributed Cubmaster turns to Akela and Pack)

Cubmaster: Akela, Members of the Pack, please welcome our new Cub Scouts.
