Tiger Cubs BSA gives parents an opportunity
to provide their children with a safe, structured, and
nurturing environment. Tiger Cubs and their adult partners
have fun together while developing closer family
relationships. Scouting can provide positive, enriching
experiences and activities to complement a child's formal
classroom education. Scouting and education share the common
goal of helping young people grow into self-reliant,
dependable, and caring adults.
Cubs BSA is a simple, fun, easy-to-operate program that
helps a boy and his adult partner gain a better
understanding of and an appreciation for the community
environment in which they live, and even the world at large.
Tiger Cubs BSA offers an opportunity for
boys to enter the Scouting family at an important age.
Research has shown that early involvement in values-based
programs is vital to strong character development. The
longer a boy stays in Scouting, the more likely he is to
develop the values and skills needed to become an ethical
and productive citizen.
The Tiger Cub dens are a part of the Pack.
Tiger Cub dens meet once a month as a den, plus once a
month for a "Go See It" activity, and they attend all pack
meetings. There are Tiger Cub resource books and program
helps available for the Tiger Cub Den Leaders, and a Tiger
Cub Handbook for each Tiger Cub. Tiger Cubs BSA introduces
boys and their adult partners to the excitement of Cub
Scouting as they "Search, Discover, and Share" together.
The Tiger Cub program is designed for
First Grade boys and the ideas are geared to their level.
They are also arranged to help the boy and his adult partner
interact together in a positive way.
