Your Tiger Cub will be a member of a den.
Most dens have five to nine boy-adult partner teams, meet twice a month
in a den meeting, and have one outing a month, called a Go See It. The
den also takes part in the monthly pack meetings. During den meetings,
Go See It outings, and pack meetings, boys learn new things and have
den meeting and den activity is led by a den leader and an adult
partner of one of the Tiger Cubs. An adult partner can be a parent,
relative, or friend who is at least 18 years old and who cares about
the boy. Each adult partner takes a turn working with the den leader to
plan and lead a den meeting and/or activity.
Tiger Cub is also a member of a Cub Scout pack. Most packs are made up
of several dens that gather monthly at a pack meeting. Pack meetings
usually follow a suggested theme and are a time for boys to be
recognized for their accomplishments during the month, to perform skits
and songs they have learned in den meetings, and to have fun with the
are led by a Cubmaster and pack committee. Like the den leaders, the
Cubmaster and assistants are volunteer leaders and are usually family
members of boys in the pack. The pack committee makes plans for pack
meetings and activities and takes care of the "business" items that are
necessary for a pack to operate smoothly.
pack committees consist of family members and members of the pack's
chartered organization. The chartered organization is the community
organization that is granted a charter by the Boy Scouts of America to
use the Scouting program. This chartered organization might be a
school, service club, religious group, or other group interested in
youth. The chartered organization approves the leadership of the pack,
provides a meeting place, and operates the pack within the guidelines
and policies of that organization and the BSA.
