Times the are a changin’. Oops,
I mean, the Tiger Program has undergone a few official changes as of June 1st,
2001. Here are some
of the changes put out by National. Leslie,
who does a great job at Pow Wow Online, got this info.
I found the info here http://members.tripod.com/cubbobwhite/tcchanges.htm
part of the effort to remove barriers from Tiger Cubs participating fully in
Cub Scouting and to create additional fun and excitement for first-grade boys,
key enhancements are listed below:
Tiger Cubs and adult partners
participate in den and pack activities together.
A Tiger Cub den leader coordinates
shared leadership among 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 along with an optional, newly designed blue and orange cap.
The Tiger Cub badge is earned after
completing five achievements grouped in three areas: den activity, family
activity, and a 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 totem, which is worn on the Tiger Cub belt.
The recommended monthly meeting
pattern consists of den, family, Go See It activities, and participation in
the monthly pack meeting. Suggested
meeting plans are included in Cub Scout Program Helps.
Tiger Cubs and adult partners use the
Tiger Cub Handbook to complete achievements and electives and plan activities.
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
Tiger Cub badges should be presented
in meaningful pack meeting ceremonies; the Tiger Cub badge is a badge of rank.
Tiger Cub dens actively participate
in pack meetings and activities.
Tiger Cubs and their adult partners
are the future of your pack.
To begin his path to the Tiger Cub
rank, the Tiger Cub must learn the Tiger Cub motto (Search, Discover, Share),
the Cub Scout Sign, and the Cub Scout salute. When he has accomplished these
tasks, he will be awarded his Tiger Cub belt totem.
The Tiger Cub Promise has been
eliminated. Tiger Cubs must now learn the Cub Scout Promise.
