Why be a Den Chief?

Who is a Den Chief?  The Den Chief supports the Cub Scout Den Leader, serving as a helper, role model, and a friend to the Wolf and Bear Cub Scouts and Webelos Scouts.

Qualifications: Be an experienced Boy Scout, (at least one full year or more), and First Class rank or above. A Varsity Scout or a Venturer Scout (male or female) can also be a Den Chief. Take Den Chief Fast Start online and the in person Den Chief training.

Who Else Should Come?? Boy Scout and Cub Scout Leader(s) who will be working with the Den Chief (s) are encouraged to attend this course at NO charge, but you MUST register. To be credited for the course you will need to complete the same prerequisite as the boys and provided proof of completion. 

This is a FULL uniformed event; Class A (not just waist up). Dress for the weather – you will be outside for part of the training.
