The fees to be a memeber of Pack 3322 are very modest. There is a small registration fee (about $36) that is due to the district and includes a subscription to Boys Life magazine. The pack asks all families with scouts to sell at least $330 in popcorn during the annual sale. If a family chooses not to sell popcorn, we ask for $110/year pack dues per family. The money raised from popcorn sales pays for the Blue and Gold Dinner for scout, Pinewood Derby kit and awards, camping fees, Pack rechartering fees, Pack Meeting supplies and entertainment, and other Pack expenses.

Tiger Cub Overview
The Tiger Cub program gives parents 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, plus once a month for a "Go See It" activity (sometimes combined with den meetings), and they attend all pack meetings.  The program is designed for First Grade boys, and the ideas are geared to their level. They are also arranged to help the boy and his adult partner interact together in a positive way and fulfill the Tiger Cub motto of “Search, Discover, and Share”.
To earn the Tiger Cub rank, the Tiger Cub Scout must complete a Family Activity, a Den Activity, and a "Go See It" Activity in each of five Achievement Areas: 
  1. Making My Family Special
  2. Where I Live
  3. Keeping Myself Healthy and Safe
  4. How I Tell It
  5. Let's Go Outdoors
As a boy completes each Achievement, he is awarded a bead which is hung from a “Totem” that is affixed to his uniform shirt pocket.  Totem beads are awarded as follows:
  • He earns a WHITE bead for each required FAMILY Activity
  • He earns an ORANGE bead for each required DEN Activity
  • He earns a BLACK bead for each required GO SEE IT Activity
Remember, there are NO performance requirements for a boy.  Simply participating and doing one's best in an activity constitutes completion.  Also, after completing the achievements, the Tiger Cub can be awarded Tiger Track Beads, which are YELLOW disks attached to the Totem.  One bead is awarded for each group of TEN Electives the Tiger Cub completes.
Examples of the requirements for Tiger Cubs:
  1. Making My Family Special
    • Family Activity -  Completed a household chore with adult partner.
    • Den Activity - Made a family scrapbook.
    • Go See It Activity – Went to the Hudson Library and Historical Society for a presentation on Hudson past and present.   
  2. Where I Live
    • Family Activity – Learned about reading a map using a map of Hudson.   
    • Den Activity - Practiced the Pledge of Allegiance and participated in a Pack Meeting flag ceremony.
    • Go See It Activity – Visited the Hudson Police Station for a guided tour.   
  3. Keeping Myself Healthy and Safe
    • Family Activity – A) Within each family, planned and practiced a fire drill at home; and B) As a Den, we planned what to do if you became lost or separated from your family in a strange place.
    • Den Activity – Made and discussed a Food Guide Pyramid
    • Go See It Activity - Learn the rules of the sport Ice Hockey.  Went to watch Hudson vs. WRA Ice Hockey at Kent State Ice Arena.   
  4. How I Tell It

    • Den Activity - Played "Tell It Like It Isn't".
    • Go See It Activity – Visited the Hudson Cable Television Station for a tour and to find out how people there communicate with others.
