Tiger
(1st Grade)

The Tiger Cub program is for boys in the 1st grade.

Tiger Den’s are made up of 6-8 boys in first grade AND their adult partners.  The boys and their adult partners work on a variety Tiger Cub Achievements throughout the year.  Families usually take turns planning and running the activities for their den meetings for that month.

They will earn their Tiger badge when they have completed the following achievements:  Making My Family Special, Where I Live, Keeping Myself Healthy and Safe, How I Tell It, and Let's Go Outdoors.  Each achievement has three components, A family activity, A den activity and a field trip called a GO SEE IT.

But just to help the boys keep track of their progression toward their Tiger badge, we use the Tiger Belt Totem.  They will receive this when they learn the Tiger Cub motto (Search, Discover, Share), Cub Scout Sign, and the Cub Scout Salute.  Then as they progress toward their Tiger Badge they will earn 1 white bead for completing the "family" activity, 1 orange bead for completing the "Den" activity, and 1 black bead for completing the "Go See It" activity for each of the five achievements mentioned above.


Bobcat

The first rank that EVERY boy earns when entering the Cub Scouting Program after the Tiger Cub program is the Bobcat rank. Tiger Cubs earn the Tiger Cub rank THEN the Bobcat rank.  Boys joining after the Tiger Cub year start with the Bobcat.

To earn the Bobcat rank the new Cub Scout must do the following:

    2. Commit: Discuss these questions with your family. Why is a promise important? Why is it important for people to trust you when you give your word? When might it be difficult to keep your word? List examples.
    3. Practice: Discuss with family members why it is important to be trustworthy and honest and how can you do your best to be honest when you are doing the activities in Cub Scouting.

    "I .....(name).... promise to do my best
    To do my duty to God and my country,
    To help other people, and
    To obey the Law of the Pack. "

  2. Say the LAW OF THE PACK.  Tell what it means.
