Den Chief Handbook Recommended
Den Chief positions are an excellent opportunity for Boy Scouts who need a leadership position and enjoy working with younger boys. Den Chief training is required for Scouts to receive the Den Chief Service Award. Please note that the Den Chief training available on-line is fast start training which you can take to make you familiar with your position but it does not replace this instructor led course.
The Den Chief works with a den of Cub Scouts led by an adult called a Den Leader. He helps with den meetings, helps the Cub Scouts earn achievements, and serves as a Scout role model for the younger boys. Working with the assistant Scoutmaster for new Scouts, he also acts as a recruiter by bringing graduating Webelos Scouts into the troop and by promoting joint pack-troop activities. He is a key link between the pack and the troop.
It is recommended that participants be at least first class.
Wearing of uniform is strongly encouraged.
