Baloo's Bugle

May 2006 Cub Scout Roundtable Issue

Volume 12, Issue 10
June 2006 Theme

Theme: Invent a Reason to Celebrate
Webelos: Traveler and Artist
Tiger Cub


As of June first your Tigers will be Wolfs.  They should have already earned their Bobcat awards and be ready to start on the trail to Wolf.  Has your pack awarded them books and neckerchiefs??  We give the books out in June so the boys have them for summer camp and family adventures in the summer.  We award the neckerchiefs in the Fall at the first Pack Meeting.

Here is a graduation ceremony for you to use as your Tigers move up to Wolf -

Tiger Cub Graduation

Heart of America Council

Equipment:   Four candles with holders, Wolf scarves and slides.   Table in front of room

Cubmaster:  Will (names) please come forward with their parents.   Search, Discover, Share has been the motto of this Tiger Cub Den for the past few months exploring many new things and places using the motto in home, school and neighborhood.  (Light candle on left.) 
Assistant CM: You and your partner have searched out your home community and have worked together and had fun.  (Light middle candle.) 

Cubmaster: You and your adult partner have discovered new things together with family and friends and had a sense of being part of a community and country.  (Light third candle.) 
Assistant CM: You and your partner have shared with your family, friends and fellow Tiger Cubs which let them learn about you and the great things you did.   Now, it is time for you to move up the Scouting Trail.  (Light fourth candle.) 

Cubmaster: In Cub Scouting, your family is still important as it is throughout you whole Scouting experience.   Support in learning each badge comes from your family as well as from your den leader.  Your parents will help you each step of the way.

Den Leader: (Boy’s name) and (adult’s name) on behalf of Den ___, I would like to welcome you to the Wolf den.  Your new den leader is (name).  (New Den Leader presents scarves and slides.)

Because this past year’s Tigers are Wolfs as of June 1 and Kindergartners are not eligible to be Tigers until June 1, there are no Tiger activities this month.  But I recommend you read the Spring Recruiting ideas in Pack Admin closely and implement a good summer program to keep those Tigers you recruit in the Spring just as eager when September rolls around.
