Over time people forget the training available that we no longer offer. Below is just  a reminder of how we do Den Chief training now.

Den Chief Training!

Boy Scouts wishing to become den chiefs will take this online course as part of their training to become a den chief. The module identifies den chief responsibilities and tasks, and describes the den chief's relationship to the adult den leaders and how that relates to the den chief's activities with the den. After finishing the online training, den chief candidates print their certificate of completion and undergo further training with their adult den leaders. Estimated time to complete: 45 minutes.


Training is a vital component to all levels of the "Journey to Excellence" (JTE) program and gives you the tools to deliver a program that will retain your scouts. 

Please contact your district training staff if you have any questions:
