Monday Night Adventure

Baloo HikingAs our mighty cubs are finishing up their schooling for the day and fueling for our meeting tonight, I want to remind den parents about tonight’s meeting. Weather permitting, the Tigers, Wolves and Bears are going on a one-mile hike around the neighborhood tonight and looking to find evidence of wildlife in nature.

All scouts should have sturdy footwear, a water bottle, flashlight, and appropriate outerwear for the weather. The predicted temperature for 7:00pm is 64 degrees F. Scouts are encouraged to bring a backpack with their six essentials to prepare for longer hikes and adventures if they desire.

Tiger Cubs…

Tiger Cub Parents last night we finished up the elective Earning Your Stripes. Next week we will be working on the Tiger Tales elective, playing a game and sharing a snack.

TIGERS…

Good morning Tiger parents. Last night we worked on and completed the elective “Sky is the Limit”, shared a snack and played hot potato.

Next week we are going to be working on the elective “Earning Your Stripes”. Please have kids do something helpful for the week, a small chore for example. We will talk about what they did during the meeting. I also ask that kids bring in 3-5 ORANGE things they like for show and tell. If it is something that cannot be brought in, a picture is great as well. We’ll discuss these during the meeting as well. We may have a small snack as well. Have a great week, and see you all next week!! Any questions, comments, etc. don’t hesitate to send me an email.

Tigers (1/27/20)

Hello all!! This week in the Tiger den we covered TIGER BITES requirement and SAFE & SMART elective. We all brought yummy and healthy snacks to share, we talked about healthy food choices and not so healthy choices. For our elective we discussed what to do in an emergency; who to call, how to react and respond.

Tiger den: 1/20/20

Tiger Parents, Tonight we reviewed the Bobcat requirements. Please also review them with your Cubs at home, they are as follows:

1. Scout Oath

On my honor I will do my best to do my duty to God and my county.  and to obey the scout law;  to help other people at all times, to keep myself physically strong,  mentally awake and morally straight.

2. Scout Law

A Scout is trustworthy, loyal, helpful, friendly, courteous, kind, obedient, cheerful, thrifty, brave, clean and reverent.

3. The Cub Scout Sign.

The Cub Scout Sign is 2 fingers, held high. It means you are ready to listen. It’s made with the right arm held high and straight up above the shoulder, with the index and middle fingers forming a V.

4. The Cub Scout Handshake.

The handshake is done by putting the index and middle fingers of the right hand against the other person’s wrist when shaking hands.

5. Cub Scout Motto.

Do your best.

6. Cub Scout Salute.

The salute is made by joining the index and middle fingers of the right hand (holding the other fingers with the thumb) and toughing the extended fingers to either the forehead or hat visor.

We will review these for the next few weeks at beginning of our meetings.        If you have any questions/comments/concerns please don’t hesitate to email me at: stracey@scouting1776.org

Have a fantastic week! See you all next Monday!

Tiger Den Update 2/26/18

This week all Den’s worked together and planted a variety of plant seeds. The Tigers were asked to draw and share some of the plants, trees, and/or shrubs that they would see on a hike or during a typical walk around neighborhood. They were then given the opportunity to examine plant leaves, roots, and soil with a magnifying glass. While the Tigers planted their tomato and wild flower seeds, they learned about the needs and growth of the plants. This completed requirement #4 of the My Tiger Jungle Adventure.

As a reminder, please have your scouts bring their handbooks to our weekly meetings. The handbook will allow the scouts see what requirements they have already completed and it will also give them the opportunity to be able to choose what they would like to work on in future meetings.

 

Firehouse Visit (5/15/17)…

Attention LIONS, TIGERS, WOLVES & BEARS we are having our annual Firehouse visit this Monday (5/15/17) at 6:30pm. We will meet AT the Firehouse. It is located at 7818 Frankford Ave, 19136 (right by Holmesburg Branch library). It is Engine 36, Ladder 20.

Tiger Update – January 9th 2017

Tiger Elective Adventure: Family Stories

The Tigers worked on the Family Stories Adventure (page 134 in the Tiger Handbook) which was designed to help Tigers learn about their families and their heritage. It is through this adventure that Tigers begin to learn that a scout is courteous as they learn family differences and explore different cultures.

During the den meeting the Tigers made a family tree (req 5), made a family crest (req 2), talked about their names (req 6), and talked about different families (req 1).

During the week the Tigers should be working with their families to learn why they were given their name and where their families originated from.

 

Fire House Visit (4/25/16)

Hello Parents: Hope you all had a great week/weekend. Tomorrow (4/25/16) the TIGERS, WOLVES & BEARS are going to visit the Fire House in Holmesburg. We’ll be meeting AT the Fire House, on Frankford a few doors down from the library. We ask that the boys be IN uniform. Thanks! We’ll see you all there. Enjoy the rest of your weekend. ?
