Rationale for Adventure

In this adventure, Tigers will learn about what it means to wear Tiger orange. The color orange represents warmth, cheer, enthusiasm, creativity, and energy. Tigers are proud to wear the color orange; they like to show their enthusiasm by helping others and by using their energy to complete tasks. Helping others provides the opportunity to build self-esteem, give goodwill, and create a cheerful attitude. The warmth in the color orange is shared by using proper manners when speaking to others.

Tigers will need to collect five orange items at home to share during Meeting 2. During Meeting 1, Tigers will choose a service project for their pack’s meeting place or chartered organization.

Meeting 3 will be a den outing to perform the service project. In advance of the outing, the leader will need to make arrangements with the outing location and confirm the outing plan with families, including transportation and any additional items they need to bring. Make sure a tour and activity plan has been submitted, if required, and activity consent forms are distributed, signed, and collected.
