Bridging The Program Levels In Cub Scouting
To help pack leaders ensure the retention of boys through the transitional phases of Cub Scouting.
In 1982, TIGER CUBS was introduced for boys in the first grade. It fills a great need in America today by providing a simple, uncomplicated program for bringing boys and their families close together.
TIGER CUBS U.S.A. is an exciting program for first grade boys and an adult member of his family. The program calls for equal participation from the boy and the adult. The TIGER CUB program stresses fun, activity, and the building of relationships between the boy and the adult as well as among the TIGER CUB group.
The motto of the TIGER CUBS is "SEARCH, DISCOVER, SHARE". The motto is derived from the opportunities to out new activities, new things, and them with one another.
TIGER CUB groups are organized by the chartered organization and the Cub Scout Pack. A member of the pack organization acts as the "organizer". The leadership for the monthly activity is rotated among the adults in each group. TIGER CUB groups are affiliated with the Pack but meet separately. The TIGER CUB group meets monthly with both BOY and ADULT being present. Most meetings involve an activity or a field trip. Twice a year the TIGER CUB group meets with the Pack - at the annual Blue and Gold Dinner and as they graduate into the Pack in June or August. TIGER CUBS is a school year program, after which the boy is eligible to join the Cub Scouts.
