Den Chief Training

Den Chief Training is Saturday, September 18, 2021 from 8 to 11 am at Hawker United Church of Christ in Beavercreek. Cost: Free! Please bring a copy of the Den Chief Handbook with you.

A Den Chief is a Scout, Venturer or Sea Scout assisting a Cub Scout den. A 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
  • 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 will build upon the above ideas and have fun while learning the role! Den Leaders are also encouraged to attend with their Den Chiefs (if they have been assigned) to begin learning how to work together effectively.
