The Den Leader, typically a parent of a boy in the den, is the most important volunteer role in the pack. A
den has 5-8 boys, all in the same school grade, who will remain together as they work through the Cub
Scout ranks. The Den Leader plans a program for his or her den that includes at least two meetings per
month in addition to the Pack meeting. These meetings should include fun and exciting activities that
help the boys work toward earning their rank badges or other awards. Meetings can also include field
trips to places like parks, sporting events, police or fire station, or other community organizations. The
Den Leader encourages participation in Pack events, and communicates opportunities for camping and
other outings. The Den Leader works closely with the scouts and parents of the den to make the best
scouting experience possible. As a Den Leader, you would guide and motivate the boys in your den, and
make a positive impact on their lives. You would also get to know your son’s friends and their parents,
making for some lasting friendships!
