Tiger Cubs

"I Promise To Love God, and My Family, and My Country, and To Learn About The World" 

In the early 1980's, as a part of the Foundations for Grouth Study, a survey was developed to find out if and how Scouting could meet the abilities, needs, and desires of 7-year-old boys and their families. The boys wanted to have fun, with other boys and their parents. The parents wanted a program in which they could work directly with their sons, exposing them to a variety of experiences. The parents also wanted simplicity and a meeting pattern - once or twice a month - that would fit into a busy schedule.

A group of Cub Scouters and educators gathered the survey results and data from pilot programs to design a program that matches the desires found in the survey with the development needs of boys in this age group. Tiger Cubs BSA was a field tested and approved, and officially became a part of the Boy Scouts of America.

Over the years, parts of the program's structure have envolved, but the basic elements have remained the same: Tiger Cubs BSA is a simple and fun program for first-grade boys and their families.

Tiger Cubs will introduce boys and their adult partners to the excitement of Cub Scouting as they "Search, Discover, and Share" together.
