Tiger Cub Scouting Trail Crossover
Posted On: 2021-03-06
PERSONNEL: Cubmaster, Tiger Cub Coach
PROPS: Crossover Bridge, Cub Scout neckerchiefs.
CUBMASTER: _____, as Tiger Cub Coach, would you please assemble the Tiger Cubs and their parents on the far side of the bridge?
TIGER CUB COACH: (Addressing the Tiger Cubs and their parents) For the past several months, you have met together to Search, Discover, and Share new experiences as a fulfillment of the Tiger Cub Motto. I would now like to present you with your Tiger Cub graduate patch and certificate.
CUBMASTER: It is now time to move along the Scouting trail to the next part of the program. In Cub Scouting, your family is as important as it is throughout your whole Scouting experience. You have just witnessed another important part of Scouting - the awarding of badges and achievements. Support in earning each badge comes from your family, as well as from your den leader. Your parents will help you each step of the way.
Parents, we would now ask that you present your son with his Cub Scout shirt so that he may cross the bridge from Tiger to Cub Scout. (Parents put Cub Scout shirt on Tigers.)
(Tiger Cub Coach), would you please escort our new Cub Scouts across the bridge to be welcomed into the Pack?
On behalf of the Pack _____, I would like to welcome you and present each of you with your official Cub Scout neckerchief (have scarves rolled and ready to put on). Parents, as you help your son with his scarf, I will read to you the Cub Scout Parents promise which we will ask you to repeat when your son receives his first badge, the Bobcat:
As a parent of a Cub Scout, I will do my best to help my boy live up to the Cub Scout promise and obey the Law of the Pack. I will work with my boy on his achievements and projects. I will attend the pack meetings and help as needed to make the pack go.
Pack ____, please join me in a big round of applause for these new Cub Scouts and their parents as they return to their seats.
