Cub Scout Den Leader Meeting Resources

We are excited to be able to provide these video resources to our new and experienced den leaders.  We are thankful for several local councils that put these videos together! Below are two links.  One is linked to an orientation video for den leaders to show them how to use these videos.  The other is a link to the video resources and Scoutbook resources.

Invite your Friends to Join Scouting!

Scouting gives young people the opportunity to explore a world beyond the boundaries of everyday life. It presents them with chances to try new things, provide service to others, build self-confidence and develop leadership skills. These experiences help Scouts while they are young, and stay with them throughout their adult lives, helping them to grow into exceptional men and women who respect their families, communities, religions, countries and themselves and are Prepared. For Life.

As a new adult leader in the Scouting program, we are committed to get you the resources that you need to put on a quality Scouting program for your Scouts. Program Resources and information on the PA Act 15 (volunteer clearances) are available on this site. Please note that all new leaders need to have the clearances prior to becoming a Scout leader. Please use the Volunteer Background Check Upload Portal to upload the needed forms in pdf format.
