It is difficult to make generic rules about who makes a decision about
splitting dens. Den leaders and cubmaster might not exactly agree
whether a split is a good thing or not. I have however never
overruled a den leader on such a decision but always let the den
leader decide; (with a little push when necessary).
Can a committee chair split a den by himself? Can the den leader make
the decision alone? You won't find an exact answer for this question in
the v Cub Scout Leader Book. In my opinion the committee (not the chair)
ought to have the last word, but different packs have different personality
>I do feel really abused
I understand. But, make sure that this will not impair your judgement. If
you want to confront the CC, tell him that den split need some time: Ask
to see whether the boys are there for real and appear for two weeks
before you split your den.
