Tiger Den


Den Leader

Girl's Den Leader:

Melanie Anderson



This is a program of exciting indoor and outdoor activities for children in 1st grade. 

In a Tiger Den, we are introducing scouts and their parents to the Cub Scouting program. The adults are attending with the scouts as support and guidance. Your child will learn by doing things themselves with the help of his/her adult partner when needed!

To earn the Tiger badge, a scout must complete six required adventures with his/her Den or family and one elective adventure of the Den or family’s choosing. As the scout completes each adventure, he/she will receive the adventure loop for that adventure, which can be worn on the scout belt. When they scout has completed the seven required adventures, he/she can receive the Tiger badge. The Tiger badge is given to the adult partner at a Pack meeting. Then, during a grand ceremony, the adult gives the badge to the scout.

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