Pack 566 Den Meeting Page

Den Meetings are a gathering of same aged cub scouts

For our Grade K to 5 (Lions, Tigers, Wolfs, Bears and Webeloes One and Twos Cubs:

A Den Meeting is a gathering of same aged Cubs. When a Den gets to be 8-12 members it may be split into two dens of the same year with separate den meetings. Typically, at least one parent of each Cub attends the meeting which runs about an hour or so with some special events lasting longer. There are generally 2 den meetings per month during the school year. Pack 566 Covid protocol requires all meetings to be held outside. We will try to work in some tours as Covid guidelines allow and parents feel comfortable. These tours may include a field trip to a local destination such as the fire station, sheriff's office, musuem, nature trail, or other locale of interest.
