Dens

Our pack is made up of a number of dens. Kids are grouped into dens by grade level:

  • Lions - 5-6 years old (kindergarten)
  • Tigers - 6-7 years old (first grade)
  • Wolves - 7-8 years old (second grade)
  • Bears - 8-9 years old (third grade)
  • Webelos I - 9-10 years old (forth grade)
  • Webelos II - 10-11 years old (fifth grade)

There may be multiple dens of any age group depending on the number of kids in the pack. Dens are lead by an adult Den Leader. There may also be Assistant Den Leaders, and/or a Den Chief. A Den Chief is a Boy Scout (12-18 year old) who assists the Den Leader and helps run the Den. Dens meet one to four times a month outside of pack meetings.
