The Den Chief Program is a key means of building relationships between the Cub Scout pack and the Scouts BSA troop. A den chief is a Scout BSA who assists a Cub Scout or Webelos den leader at den and pack meetings and other Scouting events. A valuable source of guidance, skills, songs, and games, the den chief encourages the boys in their advancement and shares his enthusiasm for Scouting with the den.
A den chief mentors Cub Scouts while acquainting them with the world of Scouts BSA, 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 Scouts BSA troop, they will find guidance and help with the transition from the den chief.
Den Chief Training is the perfect course for enthusiastic Scouts who desire a leadership role and are interested in working with younger Scouts.
