A Den Chief is a Boy Scout who assists a Cub Scout Den Leader or Webelos Scout Den Leader at den meetings, pack meetings, and other events. He's a ready source of games, songs, skits, and skills, and he encourages the boys in their advancement.
 
Do you have a Scout that needs a leadership position and wants to work with younger Scouts? 

If your scout wishes to become a Den Chief for a Cub Scout Den, please get in contact with ASM Rich Michelson on or before the September 9th Troop Meeting to ensure that your scout gets the appropriate training.  Please also get the approval and sponsorship from the the Cub Master and Den Leader of the Den that your scout wishes to become the Den Chief.

Why A Den Chief Is Important To The Cub & Boy Scout Program:
The Den Chief program is a key means of building relationships between the Pack and Troop. The Den Chief regularly reminds the boys about Boy Scouts in a positive way as he leads activities and shares his enthusiasm for Scouting with the Cub Scouts. His presence adds another important asset. He can tell them about Boy Scouting, with its outdoor activities, trips, summer camp, and opportunities for advancement. When it's time for them to move up to a Webelos Scout den or a Boy Scout troop, his example and encouragement can help them decide to make that transition.
