Den Chief

Den Chief Pledge

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.

    Tiger dens shouldn’t have den chiefs or assistant den leaders. This is the year that they have Tiger Adult Partners. They are the ones who are supposed to take turns running or assisting in meetings, providing a fun game, teaching a skit or song. This will not only get the parents involved with their son, this will give the pack future leaders, because once they survive their first meeting as a leader, they realize they can do this and it’s fun. From Wolf on up, then you can have den chiefs, den leader and asst den leader, the traditional den organization. .
