Den Chief Training 2018
Den Chief Training is a meeting of den chiefs and prospective den chiefs on a council basis. It is planned and operated by council trainers who are familiar with Cub Scouting.
How long and how effectively a den chief will serve depends upon how seriously the position is valued. That opinion is based largely on how the den chief is treated by the adults in the troop, team, or crew and in the pack. If the adults rate the position highly, the den chief will take it seriously. Den Chief Training is intended to build enthusiasm; to develop higher morale among den chiefs, and to provide the tools a new den chief will need to be successful.
The training is designed for den chiefs. However, all adult leaders who recruit or work with den chiefs are encouraged to attend with them. Leaders of dens should be encouraged to attend as well, to learn how to make the best use of a den chief. Leaders from their units who are responsible for den chiefs should be invited to attend and participate in the training.
The Den Chief who completes this training session will be better able to function in that position.
