The Tiger Den, Den 5, is comprised of Scouts who are in the first grade or are 6 years old.
Cameron Baker – Den Leader
Cub Scouts earn adventures that are specific to their grade and rank. A number of adventures must be completed to earn the badge of rank for each grade level. Adventures may be earned in any order. Completion of adventures is how the aims of character, citizenship, leadership, and personal fitness are developed.

Our past is exciting and important for Scouts to understand. Tiger Tales offers a glimpse of songs, stories, and customs that have been passed down through families and groups of people about the history of America. Some stories are about real people such as Davy Crockett or Daniel Boone. Their stories tend to be exaggerated to make them seem bigger than life. Other times, stories are about fictional characters capable of amazing things that seem impossible. Either way, tall tales and folk songs offer the spirit of American life from our ancestors telling us about their happiness, fears, dreams, and the hopes they shared.
Children love to pretend. They start at a young age by imitating what is around them. By the time they reach school age, they are ready for the next step: creating their own adventures to share. Theater provides an avenue to learn about public presentations and builds confidence in public speaking. Encouraging Tigers to perform helps them to become strong speakers and leaders, both in Scouting and in their daily lives.
