The Cub Scout Dens form the basic unit of Cub Scouting. Dens are composed of up to 8 boys of the same rank and meet 1 to 2 times a month in addition to the Pack Meeting or additional pack events. Den Leaders conduct meetings with additional help from parent volunteers and occasionally a Boy Scout from a local Troop may assist as a Den Chief. NOTE: Tiger Cubs require an adult partner at all Pack or Den events. While some activities may be worked on at the Den Meetings, it is the parents’ responsibility to assist Scouts in completing a good share of the advancement requirements.
Field trips may be held as planned by the Den Leader or Scout parents. If the outing is outside the greater Goose Creek area, a local Tour Permit (LTP) is required. Two adults must be present at every Den Meeting and function. No exception – this is the BSA two-deep leadership policy.
