Boy-Scout-Image-Den-Chiefs
Cubmasters do you have Den Chiefs helping in your dens?
Scout Masters do you have Scouts looking for leadership positions?

 We are losing our scouts after Webelos.  They are not transitioning into Scouts.  We hope that you will encourage your dens to use the Den Chief Program.  This will help not only your Cubs but also the Scouter learn leadership skills.  It’s a win- win.  Check out our Den Chief Page on our District site for more information.
Den Chief duties (pick from):  lead den in games, songs, skits;  teach skills that he knows;  help maintain order;  coach the Cubs;  stories on campouts;  coach sporting events;  basically be a “big” brother to the Cubs.
To find a scout troop that your Webelos can join after they graduate from Cubs go to beascout.org
