Introduction to Leadership Skills for Crews is the first course in the series of leadership training offered to Venturers and is a replacement for the Venturing Leadership Skills Course.

Den Chief Training

One of the best helpers for a Cub Scout den leader or Webelos Leader is a den chief, a Boy Scout who can help with activities, advancement, ceremonies, crafts, and other den events. But the best den chief is one who has attended Den Chief Training to learn about games, songs, tricks, puzzles, and other things that help a den chief do a better job.

Pack leaders! Ask your local Scout troop to provide den chiefs. You won’t regret it! You’ll have better dens, and better Webelos-to-Scout transition results.

Troop leaders! Being a den chief qualifies as a leadership position for rank advancement. Encourage your Scouts to volunteer, then sign them up for training! You’ll get more Cubs growing up to join your troop.

Den leaders! Ask your pack leaders or troop leaders to help you get den chiefs. Webelos den chiefs are especially useful for teaching the Boy Scout parts of Webelos advancement requirements and give the boys a friend in the troop when it’s time to graduate. You will get a valuable assistant leader.
