Scouts-L Mail Archive for June of 1999: Den Chief Recruiting
Den Chief Recruiting
Fri, 25 Jun 1999 16:14:02 EDT
We have been looking at the barriers that keep Scouts
from becoming Den Chiefs. One is the availability of
leadership positions that count towards advancement
but require little/no work or time investment such as Troop
Guide and Instructor. Why sign up for the additional work?
To decrease the amount of work to fulfill the position, we
are beginning to work on a "Den Chief Tool Kit". This would
be a troop-owned resource that would include materials for
games and activities as well as a guide book for running the
games and activities. The Tool Kit would allow the Den Chief
to spend more time woking with the Cubs and less time
running around looking for materials and games.
We don't want to reinvent the wheel, so I'm looking to see if
any other enterprising Scouter has already created such a
resource. If so, would you be willing to share a copy of the
kit contents and printed material?
