PERSONNEL: Cubmaster, committee chairman, den leaders.
EQUIPMENT: Candles, copies of the Cub Scout Leader Book, table.
ARRANGEMENT: The Committee Chairman and Cubmaster stand behind the table. On the table is a lighted candle and a copy of the Cub Scout Leader Book for each new leader.
Chairman: The den leader occupies a unique and essential place in Cub Scouting. Den leaders fill a particular need for boys of Cub Scout age and perform a fundamental service that no one else can give. They, therefore, become indispensable leaders in the operation of our pack.
The following den leaders have been selected by our pack committee. (Reads names and den numbers). Would you please come forward.
Will you promise to-
Show interest and concern for all boys in your den.
Take advantage of all training opportunities.
Be responsible for the organization and operation of your den.
Lead the den chief, helping him learn to lead the activities of your den.
Attend pack leader meetings, pack meetings, and roundtables when possible.
Work with the parents of your Cub Scouts (and/or Webelos Scouts) so they will have an opportunity to share in the fun of Cub Scouting.
Observe the policies of our chartered organization and of the Boy Scouts of America.
Keep your den in operation 12 months a year.
If so, please answer 'I will' (Leaders respond.)
Cubmaster: Wearing the den leader's uniform not only identifies you as a very important member of the Boy Scouts of America, the largest boys' organization of its kind in the world, but it also sets a good example for the boys in your den. We would like to welcome you as new leaders in our pack and present you with copies of the Cub Scout Leader Book. Congratulations and good Scouting!
