Thank you for agreeing to be a den leader, filling one of the most
important roles in Cub Scouting and helping a den thrive and grow.
Without your help and leadership, the den cannot exist, the boy cannot
be served, and the pack cannot be sustained.
Den Leader Responsibilities
In addition to the leader’s responsibility to the boys in Cub
Scouting generally, the den leader has certain other leadership
responsibilities which may be summarized as follows:
- Work directly with other den and pack leaders to ensure that their den is an active and successful part of the pack.
- Plan, prepare for, and conduct den meetings with the assistant den
leader and den chief (if Wolf, Bear or Webelos den leaders) or adult
partners (if Tiger Cub den leaders).
- Attend the pack leaders’ meetings.
- Lead the den at the monthly pack activity.
- Ensure the transition of their Cub Scouts to a den of the next rank (or to a Boy Scout troop if Webelos) at the end of the year.
