A scout who is 7 years old or is in the first grade is a Tiger, and their adventures are found in the Tiger Handbook.
A 7-year-old or scout in the first grade joins Cub Scouting with his parent or adult guardian. This is unique relative to other ranks in Cub Scouting. Tigers and their adult partners are just that, partners. They attend meetings together, go on adventures like field trips together, and complete requirements together.
Like all other new Cub Scouts, a Tiger must first earn their Bobcat rank. After completing the requirements for Bobcat they may go on to complete the requirements for the Tiger rank and the many electives that are offered for their rank.
|For each adventure, the Tiger and adult partner team must complete the requirements as outlined in the Tiger Cub Scout Handbook. Requirement 7 of Bobcat and requirement 3 of Tiger are identical. If a Cub Scout earns his Bobcat
rank during the same year that he begins working on his Tiger rank, he needs to complete the requirement only one time.
The adult partner acknowledges the completion of each achievement part by signing the boy’s handbook (Akela’s OK). The den leader also signs each scout's handbook (Den Leader’s OK) and records progress in the den’s advancement records. The Tiger Scouts also keep track of their own advancement using the Adventure Tracking section in the back of their handbooks, and under the guidance of the den leader, they can also keep a record of their individual progress on a den advancement chart and den doodle.
Meet the Leaders
The Tiger Den volunteer leaders below are responsible for the amazing adventures that the Tigers have.
Michael is a United States Army Veteran. He is a Den Leader for Pack 982 and the assistant committee chair. He is a strong advocate for the fun and safe education of tomorrow’s leaders. His belief is that an educational system isn’t worth a great deal if it teaches young people how to make a living but doesn’t teach them how to live a life.
Personal quote: “Don’t just teach your kids to read, teach them to question what they read. Teach them to question everything.”
Come join us and experience the fun of scouting!
