Rationale for Adventure

This adventure will introduce Tigers to the concept of teamwork and also to the idea that—even at a young age—they can make a difference in the world. Some of the activities in this adventure are home-based and involve the family and/or the adult partner, and others are to be performed with the den.

Takeaways for Cub Scouts

  • Understanding that each Cub Scout is part of many teams and, as such, he can have an impact on his family, his Tiger den, and his community
  • A Scout is trustworthy, loyal. [Tiger character compass]


ADVENTURE Requirements (Tiger Handbook, page 66)

  1. List the different teams of which you are a part.
  2. With your den, make a den job chart that shows everyone doing something to help. As one of the den jobs, lead the Pledge of Allegiance at a den meeting.
  3. Pick two chores you will do at home once a week for a month.
  4. Make a chart to show three ways that members of your Tiger team are different from each other.
  5. Do an activity to help your community or neighborhood team.

NOTES TO DEN LEADER

Meeting 3 will be a den outing to a community services organization. Scouts will brainstorm ideas for the service project during Meeting 1, and they will work out the planning details during Meeting 2. 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.

See the Appendix for optional den meeting activities, including openings, gatherings, and closings.
