About Tiger Dens
Tiger Den 1 is led by John Anderson
Tiger Cubs are boys, aged 6-7, and usually in 1st grade. There are five Tiger Cub achievement areas. The Tiger Cub, working with his adult partner and Den, completes 7 requirements within these areas to earn the Tiger Cub badge. Your boy’s first goal will be to achieve his Bobcat rank, which you will learn about at your first Den Meeting.
The Uniform and Supplies
You will need to buy a uniform for your boy as follows:
- Blue Scout Shirt (buy slightly large so he can reuse it for a few years). See this guide for information on the Cub Scout Uniform.
- Official Cub Scout Belt & Belt Buckle
- Tiger Hat (optional)
- Official Uniform Blue Pants (optional)
- The numbers 106 patches
- World crest patch
- DEN 1, 2 patch
- Mohegan Council shoulder patch
The den will provide each boy with the Tiger Handbook, neckerchief and slide at registration or the first Pack meeting. Any patches, medals or awards earned during the year will also be provided by the pack.
Our Pack meetings will be held monthly usually on Friday evenings from 7:00-8:30 downstairs in St. Mary’s Hall. Pack meetings include all our Cub Scouts – Tigers, Wolves, Bears, and Webelos along with their families.
After earning the Bobcat badge, a boy may earn the Tiger Cub badge by completing 6 adventures and 1 elective involving simple physical and mental skills. This is an excellent Achievements reference.
