What is a Den Chief & Den Chief Training?




A Den Chief is a youth member of Boy Scout Troop, Venturing Crew or Varsity Team who works within a
den in a Cub Scout Pack. Yes, even GIRLS who are members of a co-ed Venturing Crew can serve as a Den
Chief! To be an effective Den Chief, you must be trained, so register now for the Den Chief Conference at
HOAC’s University of Scouting 2009. Bring your Den Chief Handbook (Can be ordered online or purchased at
the Scout Shop). There is a requirement that one adult Scouter, parent or guardian must accompany every
two youth Scouters attending. The adult must stay with the youth Scout throughout the training. There is no
cost for the adult who accompanies the two youth during this training.
