Western District Den Chief Training
A Den Chief is a Scout, Venturer or Sea Scout assisting a Cub Scout den. But the story is far more important than those words suggest as 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 Cub Scouts and other Scouting programs;
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.
This training is designed to build on each of these ideas using a framework that will allow the new Den Chief, or perhaps the experienced Den Chief looking for new ideas, to have fun and learn the role.
