Den meetings are a time for learning new things and having fun. Dens are led by a team of adult volunteers - the den leader and assistant den leader(s). Den leaders are usually adult family members of boys in the den.

How are Parents involved?
Cub Scouting is a family program. Parents or a responsible adult
accompany their scouts to most events and use this time to create
lasting memories. Our pack has a good balance of moms, dads and
siblings participating as their schedules allow. All camping for the
pack is family camping and siblings are welcome and encouraged.
are encouraged to use their talents to help the pack in whatever way
they are comfortable. Parents who want to become more involved can
become den leaders, assistant den leaders, committee members or
volunteer to help set up or clean up events. Parents can arrange for
tours of their places of work, or help scouts learn about a hobby of
theirs (such as wildlife watching). There are lots of big and small
ways to become involved.
