To get started, each new Scout needs only:
-The Cub Scout Handbook (appropriate for their grade level), which explains EVERYTHING about the Cub Scout program. The handbook should be brought to each meeting. Write your son's name in the inside cover of his handbook!
-The Cub Scout uniform. Pack 7 Scouts do NOT need the uniform pants or socks. Our cubs usually wear jeans, khakis, or shorts with the cub scout belt. The upper uniform - belt, shirt, shirt insignia, neckerchief, neckerchief "slider", and cap is all you need; you will need the patches for the "Connecticut Yankee Council", "Pack 7" and th Den # of your assigned den. Write your son's name or initials on the inside tag in his cap!
The first thing Tigers and new Scouts work on as a den is earning the Bobcat Badge. This must be done before he works on the Tiger badge requirements – but it’s really easy to earn this first badge! Here is a link to a general outline of the Bobcat Badge Requirements.
