The Tiger Cubs program is for first-graders (or those who are 7 years old) and adult family members. When the scout registers as a Tiger Cub, Mom or Dad also registers as a Tiger Cub Partner. The program provides many opportunities for the Tiger Cub and family to search out new activities, discover new things, and share them with each other. The program is designed with a minimum of organization. There are 17 big ideas. Built around each big idea are family activities that the Tiger Cub and the family can do, and family activities for the whole Tiger den. The tiger cub den usually meets once or twice a month, with a different family presiding over each meeting. The tiger cubs join the rest of the pack in the monthly Pack meetings.
