Cub Scout Leader Training

Do you have what it takes to be a pack trainer?

Good Cub Scout packs take adult dedication, planning and training. Under the direction of the pack committee chair or the Cubmaster, the pack trainer helps leaders and parents understand the purposes, policies and procedures of the Cub Scouting program. The pack trainer must meet BSA membership requirements, be at least 21 years of age and be registered with the Boy Scouts of America as a pack trainer.

It is recommended the Pack Trainer have at least one year of experience in a leadership position in Cub Scouting, preferably as a Cub Scout den leader, Webelos den leader, or Cubmaster. Contact your committee chair or Cubmaster to sign up as pack trainer. Every Scout deserves a trained leader.

For training requirements for Cub Scout Leader, Cub Scout Committee Member, Cub Scout Webelos Leader, Cub Scout Camping, contact your District Training Chair today!

All District Training Chairs encourage each unit or group of units, to contact them to arrange for eight or more leaders to receive training at a convenient time and place.
