Tiger Cubs is an exciting introduction to the scouting program for first grade boys (or 7 years old) excited to get going! Tiger Cubs do stuff – lots of stuff – with their adult partners. This program is intended to open up the world to inquisitive minds along with the caring guidance of adults. The first steps along the Boy Scout Trail are laid here and every rank advancement through the scouting program builds on the basic categories of activity done as tigers.

The Tiger Cub program
runs on two levels. The scout and his adult partner meet weekly to do activities centered around the Family. Then, the scout and adult partner meet with the rest of the tiger den to fulfill Den Activity and Go See It requirements.

1. Cub Scout Tiger Book – we recommend the spiral bound Tiger Scout books, they cost a little more but lay flat opposed to the standard binded ones-

2 .Class A Uniform- this includes the following

Blue Cub Scout shirt, please buy your shirt a little large, most boys will be wearing the same shirt for the next 3 years. American Flag and Boy Scouts of America are all ready stitched on. We recommend getting a short sleeve shirt.

Additional Required Patches on Cub Scout shirt

– Pack Number “99” – buy 2 Red Number “9” to make the “99”

Applying Patches to Uniform Tip: buy the Badge Magic self adhesive from the Scout Store, just cut out the shape and stick on the back of the patches, peal off the backing and press onto uniform. Then press with an hot iron to secure (not sewing needed).  Avoid the patch adhesives from craft stores, they are worthless, get Badge Magic or get ready to spend a few hours sewing.

Please do not buy any other patches than the ones listed above, Boys will earn patches throughout the year and will be presented at Pack and Den Meetings.

3. Blue Cub Scout Web Belt – Blue with Brass Cub Scout Logo

TIGER CUB SCOUT ACHIEVEMENTS

Starting the path to the Tiger Cub Rank, a scout first earns the Bobcat badge – this is the first step for all Cub Scouts. But, a Tiger Cub will really earn his Tiger Cub Totem first because its requirements are very simple and it gives him something tangible to receive at the first pack meeting, even if he did not complete all the Bobcat requirements. The Tiger Cub Totem requirements are:

Learn the Cub Scout Motto

Learn the Cub Scout Sign

Learn the Cub Scout Salute

He can then use the totem to display his achievement beads as he earns them.

The Tiger Cub badge is presented to boys who have completed all 15 parts of the five separate achievements – five Family activities, five Den activities, and five Go See It outings. Once a boy, or all the boys in a den, earn their Tiger Cub badge, it should be presented to the scout’s adult partner at a pack meeting, who then presents it to the boy. The badge is sewn on the left pocket of the Tiger Scout uniform.

The den activities and Go See It events should be completed with the entire den. Attendance at den events is important – for both the scout and adult partner. Of course, if a scout has a conflict with a den event, he can perform that activity with his adult partner at some other time.

Tip: While your scout is working on advancement, his den leader will track his progress on the Tiger Cub Den Advancement Chart. Make this easier by tracking progress in the Tiger Trail chart of the Tiger Scout handbook. Have your tiger bring his book to every den meeting so the den leader can transfer marks from book to chart.

Tip: Keep in mind that participation is the key goal of the Tiger Cub program. There is no level of competence or skill required to earn the rank badge. Don’t push your scout to succeed, just participate and enjoy the time together.
