Want to know a secret? Den leaders and their sons get more out of scouting than anyone else. It’s true! The planning and preparation of every den meeting is a team effort, even if it’s just bouncing ideas off one another. Your son will be more involved and more engaged in the activities and the meetings, and he will be proud to see his dad or mom “suit up” every week, just like him — even if he never admits it.
Becoming a cub scout den leader will be one of the greatest things you will ever do for yourself, and your family. It will gently nudge you outside your comfort zone in many ways, and you will learn new skills and try new things, but the greatest reward is experiencing it all with your son.
