1st grade - Tigers

Welcome to the Tiger Den!

Tigers is an exciting introduction to the scouting program for first grade boys and girls (or 7 years old) excited to get going! Tigers do stuff - lots of stuff - with their adult partners. This program is intended to open up the world to inquisitive minds along with the caring guidance of adults. The first steps along the Boy Scout Trail are laid here and every rank advancement through the scouting program builds on the basic categories of activity done as Tigers.

This first year in Scouting requires that an adult partner participate with Tigers in all den meetings and activities.

The Tiger works toward earning his Bobcat rank and then his Tiger Rank badge with his den or family. Each Tiger must complete six core Tiger adventures and one of the thirteen Tiger elective adventures to receive his Tiger Rank badge. After completing an adventure each Cub Scout will receive an immediate recognition award in the form of a adventure loop that he can wear on his belt. Adventure loops are color coded and specific to each Scouting year. Tiger year adventure loops have orange edges. 

After earning the Tiger badge, a Tiger Scout can work on the remaining 12 Tiger electives until he finishes first grade (or turn 8 years old). He can choose elective adventures that may show him new hobbies and teach him skills that will be useful during his Boy Scout years. When he completes an elective adventure, he receives an additional adventure loop to wear on his belt.

Pack 475 Tiger Den meetings are held at the Guilford Lakes School. Look at the Tiger calendar on this page for more information on Tiger Den specific meetings as well as the monthly Pack 475 meetings.

Please wear Class A Uniform to all functions/meetings (unless your den leader has specified otherwise).
