THE TIGER CUB PROGRAM IS:
- For boys in 1st grade or 7 years old
- Boy/Adult partner oriented
- Family oriented program
- All done in the spirit of fun
- An introduction to Cub Scouting
- A September-May program based on a school year)
One of the best sources of boy and adult membership
for the pack is the Tiger Cub den. When a pack has a Tiger Cub den,
these boys graduate as Cub Scouts into the pack as soon as they have
completed first grade. It is a natural progression. The graduation
is held in late spring so the new boys can participate in summer Cub
Scout Activities such as Cub Scout Day camp.
Because the adults
in the Tiger Cub den have had experience in shared leadership, they
are familiar with the boys in the den. Therefore, selection of den
leaders becomes an easy task.
Starting with the September issue
of Baloo's Bugle you will find one or two Tiger Cub Big Ideas each
month. All but two of the Big Ideas can be done in any order. Big
Idea #1 is always done first, and Big Idea #17 is done last. When
planning the rest of the Big Ideas you might want to tie in the Big
Idea/Ideas that fit holidays, seasons or the Cub Scout Themes.
