Den Chief Training (Boy Scouts)
A den chief is a Boy Scout, Varsity Scout, or Venturer assisting a Tiger Cub, Wolf, Bear, or Webelos Scout den. But the story is far more important than those words suggest.
The den chief: • Holds a leadership position in the troop, team, or crew, a requirement for many steps in Boy Scout and Venturer advancement • Is a model for the boys in the den, as well as the entire pack • Promotes Scouting in general and the local troop in particular
• Facilitates the transition of Webelos Scouts into Boy Scouting In addition, a trained den chief:
• Is capable of effectively assisting the den leader with planning and conducting den meetings • Understands the Cub Scouting program and the differences between Cub Scouting and Boy Scouting •Will be comfortable with the den leader's duties and confident in carrying them out
• Is familiar with resources for age-appropriate activities for Cub Scouts • Has a repertoire of activities that Cub Scouts enjoy
Den Chief Training will be held on June 27 at the same time and location as the Upper Desert Merit Badge Fair!

National Youth Leadership Training

Course Dates:  June 15 - 20, 2015



NYLT (National Youth Leadership Training) is advance leadership training for youth troop, team and crew leaders. NYLT is leadership training for young men and young women. National Youth Leadership Training is an exciting, action packed program designed to provide youth members of the Boy Scouts of America with leadership skills and experience they can use in their home troops, teams or crews. NYLT teaches life long leadership skills.

NYLT uses the patrol method to teach team leadership. The NYLT course centers around the concepts of what a leader must BE, what a leader must KNOW and what a leader must DO. NYLT provides youth leaders with the HOW TO skills they need to be strong youth and strong youth leaders.

Camp Wiley Cub Scout Resident Camp
Every Cub should go to camp!
An update from our Council: Attention Cub Scouts and Parents! 
There have been several changes influenced by BSA National this year. You already know about Tigers now being allowed to attend Camp Wiley, but starting this year we are relaxing the one scout to one parent ratio for Cubs and instead will only require that two adults be present for every group of up to eight boys.  We must still require, because of youth protection standards, that each camp site have a registered leader over 21 and either an additional registered leader over 18 or the parent of a scout, but other than those requirements we can now offer the more relaxed ratio of two adults to eight Cub Scouts. It is our hope that these new standards will allow Scouts to come to camp who might not otherwise get to go because parents couldn't get the time off. See ya at Camp!
