Welcome to the Tiger Den!


The Tiger Den meets on the 2nd and 3rd Monday of each month at the Middle Island Presbyterian Church (across the street from the Longwood Junior High School). Meetings run from 6:00-7:00 pm

Please be dressed in full uniform unless told otherwise in advance.

A boy who is 7 years old or in first grade is a Tiger, and his adventures are found in the Tiger handbook.  A Tiger cub joins 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 his Bobcat rank.  After completing the requirements for Bobcat he may go on to complete the requirements for the Tiger rank and many electives that are offered for his rank.

Tiger Requirements

  1. Complete each of the following Tiger required adventures with your den or family:
    a. Backyard Jungle
    b. Games Tigers Play
    c. My Family’s Duty to God
    d. Team Tiger
    e. Tiger Bites
    f. Tigers in the Wild
  2. Complete one Tiger elective adventure of your den or family’s choosing.
  3. With your parent or adult partner, complete the exercises in the pamphlet How to Protect Your Children From Child Abuse: A Parent’s Guide, and earn the Cyber Chip award for your age.*

*If your family does not have Internet access at home AND you do not have ready Internet access at school or another public place or via a mobile device, the Cyber Chip portion of this requirement may be waived by your parent or adult partner.

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 boy’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.
