tigercub_patchTiger Cubs, BSA, is a program for boys in the first grade and their adult partners. It allows the boy and adult to build strong relationships with each other, the rest of the family, and with other members of the Tiger Cub's group.

Tiger Cubs introduces boys and their adult partners to the excitement of Cub Scouting as they live the Tiger Cub motto together: Search, Discover, Share. A shared leadership component, where a den leader works with boy-adult partner teams, gives everyone input into the planning and carrying out of activities.

This is a tiger paw with four strands for totem beads that he wears on his belt. A boy earns totem beads by working on the five Tiger Cub achievements.
