Why is a den chief important to the Cub & Boy Scout program?
The den chief program 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 the 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?
