Cub Scout Den Meetings
A den is a group of six to eight boys, within the pack, that meets several times a month between pack meetings. The boys in a den are usually all at the same grade level. The den structure allows boys to build relationships with leaders and other boys. The den provides opportunities for activities that would be difficult with a large group. The den also provides leadership opportunities for the boys.
While boys appreciate the fun and fellowship of the regular meetings of their den and pack, outdoor activities play a crucial role in keeping boys interested and active in the Scouting program. Every leader should be sure there are plenty of opportunities for boys and their families to experience the "outing" in "Scouting" by including at least one outdoor activity per month.
Outdoor Program Highlights
Cub Scoutings' camping and outdoor activities fulfill Tiger Cubs, Cub Scouts, and Webelos Scouts dreams of fun, excitement, and adventure. They provide a natural setting for quality time with family and friends. Modern council camps, with qualified leadership, provide an ideal setting for these activities.
Cub Scout Pack Meetings
The monthly pack meeting brings together boys from every den, their leaders, and their families, to participate in a large-scale event that serves as a showcase for everything the boys have learned and done in their individual den meetings. The pack meeting gives the boys a larger experience beyond their own den, and helps them to connect their individual activities to the entire Cub Scouting program.
