|The Tiger Cub program is for first-grade (or age 7) boys
and their adult partners. There are five
Tiger Cub achievement
areas. The Tiger Cub, working with his adult partner, completes 15
requirements within these areas to earn the Tiger Cub badge. These
requirements consist of an exciting series of indoor and outdoor
activities just right for a boy in the first grade.
Tiger Cubs BSA gives parents an opportunity to provide their
children 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 BSA 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.
Tiger Cubs BSA offers an opportunity for boys to enter the Scouting family at 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.

ScoutingBSA.org web site is a
legacy site of the Viking Council BSA, now Northern Star Council.
This site was the original council site and was active from 1996 to
2002 and run by volunteers. As the web became more important to
Scouting, the council took over with paid staff. This site is no
longer maintained but is an interesting snapshot of an early Scouting
web site. You can share your comments
