Tigers meet every other Wednesday evening from 6:15 to 7:30 in the Mary Rowlandson cafeteria beginning on September 12. The Den currently has 13 boys led by Sal Bhimji, Nick Facendola and Shawn Kerr.
Boys may join at any time during the year – they are never ‘behind.’
Tiger Cubs begin by working on their Bobcat Badge, which is typically awarded in February at the Blue & Gold Dinner. In earning their Bobcat Badge, the boys learn key Scouting rituals such as the Scout sign, salute and handshake, as well as to begin memorizing the Scout Oath and Law.
During the year, just like the other Scouts, the Tiger Den meetings are built around “Adventures.” Tiger Adventures are:
- My Tiger Jungle (Outdoors awareness)
- Games Tigers Play (Games and sportsmanship)
- Tiger Circles: Duty to God (Non-denominational and personal)
- Team Tiger (Team play and sportsmanship)
- Tiger Bites (Healthy eating habits)
- Tigers in the Wild (Hiking)
Tigers also work with their parent(s) or as a Den to complete one elective Adventure chosen from a group of options.
There is plenty of time in the program for additional activities that take advantage of particular skills, interests or ideas that parents bring to the table. Parents roll up their sleeves and pitch in to make a healthy, memorable experience for their boys.
