Any boy who is 7 years old or in first grade can join as a Tiger. The Tiger Cub program is a one-year introduction to Scouting. The Tiger Cub motto is "Search, Discover, Share." The program transitions the boys (and parents!) to the Cub Scouting program, which lasts 3-1/2 years.
Each Tiger Cub joins with an adult partner and forms a team basis. Tiger Cub groups operate on a system called "shared leadership." Each boy & adult team takes their turn in providing leadership within the Tiger Den. In this way, each boy has the opportunity to serve in a leadership role with an adult partner during his Tiger Cub experience. The Tiger group also attends the monthly Pack meeting. By February they will earn their first achievement rank - Tiger.
