Program Volunteers


Craig Ficik

In Cub Scouting, the person who leads the pack is called a Cubmaster. The Cubmaster is responsible for the monthly Pack Meeting which includes all boys, leaders and parents from all dens. The Pack Committee develops and funds the pack program with the help of the Cubmaster and Den Leaders.

Assistant Cubmaster

Every pack should have at least one Assistant Cubmaster. In most packs, two or three will be helpful, allowing the Cubmaster to divide responsibilities. At least one assistant Cubmaster should be able to replace the Cubmaster's position in case of an emergency. The assistant Cubmaster is recommended by the Cubmaster, approved by the pack committee and chartered organization, and registered as an adult leader of the BSA.

Den Leader

A Cub Scout Den Leader is the adult volunteer who plans and runs Tiger, Wolf or Bear den meetings and activities, with the assistance of one or more Assistant Cub Scout Den Leaders, the Den Chief, and Denner. They coordinate the den's involvement in pack activities, and facilitate and track the den's advancement. The Cub Scout Den Leader Award is available to Cub Scout Den Leaders who complete training, tenure, and performance requirements. Webelos Den Leaders are assigned to Webelos Patrols of 4th or 5th grade boys.

Assistant Den Leader

The Assistant Cub Scout Den Leader shares the work of the Cub Scout Den Leader and may be called upon to serve as a family contact or record keeper, or to handle other details of den operation. Each den should have at least one assistant den leader, and more if needed. Also see Assistant Webelos Den Leader.
