Tiger Cub Overview
The Tiger Cub program gives parents/guardians an opportunity to provide their son(s) with a safe, structured, and nurturing environment.  Tiger Cubs and their adult partners have fun together, while developing closer family relationships.  Scouting can provide positive, enriching experiences and activities to complement a child's formal classroom education.  Scouting and education share the common goal of helping young people grow into self-reliant, dependable, and caring adults.
Tiger Cubs is a simple, fun, easy-to-operate program that helps a boy and his adult partner gain a better understanding of and an appreciation for the community environment in which they live, and even the world at large.  It offers an opportunity for boys to enter the Scouting family in the first grade - an important age.  Research has shown that early involvement in values-based programs is vital to strong character development. The longer a boy stays in Scouting, the more likely he is to develop the values and skills needed to become an ethical and productive citizen.

The Tiger Cub den(s) is a part of the larger Cub Scout Pack.  The den(s) meets once a month as a den, as needed to complete adventure requirements, and they attend all Pack meetings.  The program is designed for first grade boys, and the adventures are geared to their level.  They are also arranged to help the boy and his adult partner interact together in a positive way.

To earn the Tiger Cub rank, the Tiger Cub Scout must complete the seven required adventures and one elective adventure.  The required adventures include: 
     1. Backyard Jungle
     2. Games Tigers Play
     3. My Family’s Faith
     4. Team Tiger
     5. Tiger Bites
     6. Tigers in the Wild

List of What to Take On a Campout

Cub Scout Pack 3322
CAMP OUT “WHAT TO TAKE” LIST
LABEL EVERYTHING!

For those who have never camped, don't be intimidated -- Pack leaders are there to help.  If you have questions beforehand, please contact us for advice, or if you need help while on site, please ask.  We are there to make this fun and enjoyable for the whole family.
  • Plate, bowl, utensils, and a drinking cup for each camper (travel mugs work great).  This helps avoid the paper, plastic, and styrofoam that goes in the trash on typical campouts.  Wash basins will be provided by the Pack to clean your equipment after meals.  There will be NO disposable plates, bowls, or cups available at campouts!!!
  • Tent (we suggest you set it up beforehand; don't set it up for the first time on a campout)
  • Ground cloth large enough to be below your complete tent footprint
  • Warm sleeping bag - if you’re not sure how warm your sleeping bag is, bring a wool blanket or fleece liner to use inside the sleeping bag.
  • Ground pad or air mattress
  • Pillow
  • Flashlight with fresh batteries
  • Water bottle
  • Warm clothes - don’t forget hats and gloves – nights can get COLD!
  • Rain gear
  • Hiking boots or other waterproof boots
  • Extra change of clothes (including socks) to sleep in - keep these some place you know will stay dry.  If your clothes get wet during the evening, you’ll be glad you have dry clothes to sleep in!  In fact, bring multiple pairs of dry socks.  Wet feet make uncomfortable campers.
  • Toothbrush / toothpaste
  • Compass - if you have one; not required
  • Footballs / Frisbees / Corn Hole / Soccer Ball - anything for outdoor activities the kids might enjoy
  • Swim Trunks and towels, if swimming is available at the campout
  • Camera
  • Bug spray (don't spray on or in tent, though; it can destroy a tent's waterproof status)
  • Sunscreen
  • Hat
  • Scoutbook
PLEASE DO NOT BRING:
  • Matches / Lighters
  • Snack Food (due to potential critter problems)
  • Knives:
    • OK for adults
    • OK for boys who have received their Whittling Chip and have permission of both their parents and den leader
  • Electronic Devices (iPods, Game Boys, etc.)
  • Alcohol (BSA rules strictly prohibit alcohol use)
  • If you must use nicotine products, please go to a place where Scouts cannot see.
  • BSA and the Great Trails Council have rules about whom can occupy a tent together.  Generally, Scouts can tent with Scouts, and Scouts can tent with a biological mother, a biological father, his siblings, and anyone legally married to a biological parent.  If you have questions, please contact the Cubmaster or another leader.
