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.
