Regarding Jan's posting on Tigers recruited in May...
Our council recruits Tigers in April for the upcoming year. These
are boys who are in kindergarten, about to be first graders. In the
past, they have not been allowed to attend district day camp, unless they
attend in the "Pixie Camp" (due to a parent serving in a camp
leadership role with an older Cub brother). These Tigers have not
been able to earn belt loops.
They remain in the Tiger program until the following year when they
graduate into a Wolf den and then can attend day camp as a Wolf.
I've seen many references to Tigers not being Cubs. According to the
literature I've read on the new guidelines for the Tiger program, Tigers
are a full part of the Cubs' program.
I've not heard if this will change the criteria for our district day
camps this year. Think I will ask when I go to the council office.
