Boy Scouts wishing to become den chiefs will take this course to learn the Den Chief’s responsibilities, tasks, relationship to adult den leaders, and receive many suggestions to ensure a smooth start and continuing success for all den chiefs. Because it teaches and models many leadership skills, the course can be taken by all Boy Scouts as an excellent supplemental leadership training course between Introduction to Leadership Skills-Troop and NYLT.
Scouts will receive the Den Chief Handbook and prepare a den chief kit for use with their dens. This training is one of the requirements to qualify for the Den Chief Service Award. Scout uniform without sash is expected. Estimated class time is 4 hours. Upon successful completion, scouts will receive a certificate of training.
