The Boy Scout troop had elections last night. In Boy Scout troops, after the Senior Patrol Leader and patrol leaders are elected, the SPL starts asking the other Boy Scouts to fill leadership positions.
One of those positions is Den Chief, and we have a new Tiger Cub den in our Cub Scout pack which does not have a Den Chief yet. So for his Scoutmaster Minute, my husband read the Den Chief Pledge and asked any of the Scouts who are interested in learning more about being a Den Chief to see him.
Den Chief Pledge
I promise to help the scouts in my den to the best of my ability, to encourage, guide, and protect them in all den and pack activities, and show them by my example what Boy Scouts of America stands for.
I will strive to be prompt and dependable, and to cooperate with the leaders in carrying out the den program.
As each boy becomes eligible to move along the Cub Scouting trail (earning the Bobcat, Tiger Cub, Wolf, Bear, or Webelos badge, or the Arrow of Light), I will encourage him and do all in my power to interest him in someday becoming a Boy Scout.
