Den Chief Training

posted Dec 8, 2016, 3:01 PM by Webmaster Troop 13   [ updated Dec 8, 2016, 3:04 PM ]

Jan 7th 9:00 am - 12:30 pm – Den Chief Training - Nobscot Scout Reservation

1 Nobscot Road  Sudbury, MA

·         The Den Chief 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.
