Cubmaster: Cub Scouting is different than Boy Scouting. Like Boy Scouting, it has its games, crafts, advancements, and goodwill projects. The difference is in the type of activities that younger boys like to do. The person who knows these activities best is one who has been a Cub Scout.
It is the job of the den chief to help lead den activities that will help younger boys to be good Cub Scouts and Webelos Scouts and eventually, good Boy Scouts, Varsity Scouts, and Explorers. Den chiefs set a good example by being both a leader and a friend. Tonight we would like to recognize those who serve our pack a den chiefs.
(Calls names and den numbers of all den chiefs.)
We would like to ask that you re-pledge yourself to your responsibility as den chief. Please repeat the Den Chief Pledge after me:
I promise to help the Cub Scouts in my den To the best of my ability, To encourage, guide, and protect them In all den and pack activities, And to show them by my example what a Boy Scout is. I will strive to be prompt and dependable, And to cooperate with the leaders In carrying out the den program.
As each Cub Scout completes the third grade, I will encourage him to join a Webelos den. As he becomes eligible I will do all in my power to Interest him in becoming a Boy Scout. (Presents each den chief with an appreciation certificate)
