Why A Den Chief Is Important To The Cub & Boy Scout Program:
The den chief is a key means of building relationships between the pack and
troop. The den chief regularly reminds the boys about Boy Scouts in a
positive way as he leads activities and shares his enthusiasm for
Scouting with Cub Scouts. His presence adds another important asset.
He can tell them about Boy Scouting, with its outdoor activities,
trips, summer camp, and opportunities for advancement. When it's time
for them to move up to a Webelos den or a Boy Scout troop, his
example and encouragement can help them decide to make that transition.
A den chief is a Boy Scout who assists a Cub Scout den leader or
Webelos den leader at den meetings, pack meetings, and other
events. He's a ready source of games, songs, skits, and skills, and he
encourages the boys in their advancement.
Do you have a Scout that needs a leadership position and wants to work with younger Scouts?
