A child who is 7 years old or is in the year 2 or first grade is a Tiger, and his adventures are found in the Tiger Handbook. Tiger Scouts will first earn their Bobcat rank while in the Tiger Den.
is an exciting scouting program for first grade youth (or 7 years old) ready to get going! Tigers do stuff
- lots of stuff - and all 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 activities done as Tigers.
If a youth has completed kindergarten (or is 7 years old) and has earned the Bobcat Badge, earning the Tiger rank is next. The scout receives a Tiger Scout handbook, Tiger neckerchief, and Tiger neckerchief slide. A blue Cub Scout Uniform is also needed. This part of the boy scout trail is intended to take one school year, preparing the scout to begin Wolf adventures after completing first grade.
The Tiger Cub program runs on two levels. The scout and adult partner do Do-At-Home Projects as a family. Then, the scout and adult partner meet with the rest of the Tiger Den at den meetings, den outings, and pack meetings. Meeting sounds pretty boring, but a good scout meeting is active, fun, and interesting. The hour is often packed with games, activities, and safe adventure.
Tiger Scouts spend their time doing adventures that move them ahead towards their Tiger rank. By completing seven adventures, the Tiger rank is earned. The Tiger's adult partner participates the entire way, but the recognition items are only for the scouts.
