Den leaders should check out this “Helpful Hints for Den Leaders” page at the BSA National website.
Among the useful suggestions are the following:
- Plan meetings in advance and with an emphasis on “the flow of activities.”
- At the beginning of the year, establish clear den rules.
- Tiger Cub, Wolf, and Bear den leaders should encourage advancement with immediate recognition kits (i.e., the beads that go on the uniform).
- Snacks are a great way to end a den meeting.
