Tiger Den Meeting Ideas - Go See It: Work
Preparation and Before the Meeting
To prepare for this meeting, arrange to visit the workplace of one of the adult partners. This is a good way to get another parent involved in your Cub Scout program. Chances are that one of the adult partners in your den works someplace which would be interesting for the Tiger Cubs to visit.
Make thank you cards or a poster for the place you are visiting. Or see my gathering activities page for some other ideas.
Opening and Business
Keep it simple. You might not have a flag where you are visiting, but you could say the Cub Scout Promise.
You will be doing one of the Tiger Cub Scout electives:
Tiger Elective 39 – Go to Work: Visit the place where your adult partner or another adult works.
What you will do there depends on the location. Depending on where you visit, you might be fulfilling one of these other Tiger electives also:
