Den Chief Training

November 16 @ 10:00 am - 2:00 pm


Cost? $10; Each participant will receive a handbook and TRAINED patch upon completion of the course; snacks and beverages provided

This training differs from the course offered by Camp Carpenter each Spring prior to Cub Resident Camp; it focuses on working with a Cub Scout Den during the program year as the Cubs work toward earning their rank badge. It is designed to build on each of the listed goals using a framework that will allow the new Den Chief to have fun and learn the role.

A Den Chief is a Scout, Venturer or Sea Scout assisting a Cub Scout den.

The Den Chief:

  • Serves as a Scouting role model for the Cub Scouts in the den, as well as the entire pack;
  • Promotes Scouting in general and the local troop in particular;
  • Encourages the transition of Webelos Scouts into Scouts BSA;
  • Holds a leadership position in the troop or crew, thus fulfilling an advancement requirement in the unit.

In addition, a trained Den Chief:

  • Assists the Den Leader with planning and conducting den meetings;
  • Understands the Cub Scouting program and the differences between Cubs and older Scouts & Venturers;
  • Understands the Den Leader’s duties and confidently helps lead portions of the den meeting program;
  • Knows a variety of resources for age-appropriate activities for Cub Scouts in the den;
  • Brings a repertoire of activities that Cub Scouts enjoy.

What should I bring?

  • Class A (field) uniform
  • Notebook and pen
  • bagged lunch
  • BSA med form parts A & B (returned at end of class)
  • Enthusiasm and Scout Spirit!
