Maureen Clapp – Bear Den Leader | Andrew Doughty – Asst Bear Den Leader


The Bear Cub Scout (Grade 3)

Dens Parents are vital to the Cub Scout dens, both in the role of home support and to help the den leader, but their sons are beginning to be more independent, and not every boy needs a parent at every meeting. The den consists of four to eight boys, a den leader and assistant den leader (usually parents of some of the boys), and often a den chief (an older Boy Scout or Venturer who helps the den leader). They meet once a week at a regularly scheduled time and place, and they also attend the pack meeting with their families.
