Tiger Den Leaders have one of the hardest jobs.  Every year we recruit the heck out of these first graders, get them to the orientation night, and then ask the parents – “Who wants to be a leader?”

So we shuttle them from the meeting to Youth Protection, to This is Scouting and Tiger Leader Specific Training.  I also print out for them the Den Meeting Resources and as Cub Master try to help them in the first few meetings, both by contacting them prior to the meeting to ensure that they are ready and by helping to facilitate the first few meetings and set expectations with the parents.

So to start the year off right, each Tiger Den should have it’s own Den Box to get the year started.  This will have most of the consumables they will need for the year (according to the resource guide) and I feel that it is easier to replace as you go rather than purchase in preparation, because the Den Leader will be busy enough without having to think about this.
