Cub Scout Leader Specific Training gives a leader the knowledge and skills needed for a specific position. Leader Specific Training is available for the following positions in Cub Scouting:
- Tiger Cub leader
- Cub Scout den leader and assistant
- Webelos den leader and assistant
- Cubmaster and assistant
- Pack committee members
Basic Leader Training goes into greater detail on youth development and boy behavior, program planning, activities, and the purposes of the program. It is usually presented in one or two group sessions, but can be delivered to small groups or even individuals through personal coaching.
Every Cub Scout leader should complete Basic Leader Training; it prepares leaders to deliver a quality, fun-filled program. Leaders who understand the whys and hows of the program are more effective in their roles. They know how to use available resources to provide an exciting and worthwhile program for boys. Trained leaders have confidence in carrying out their responsibilities and, along with the boys, have more fun.
Tiger Cub den leaders, Cub Scout den leaders, Webelos den leaders, Cubmasters, and Pack Committee members can complete this training in one day or two or three evenings. These trainings will cover in detail your role in the Pack and what you will be working on with the Scouts in your den. Additionally, the following brochures (pdf) are designed to provide an at-a-glance orientation for new Cub Scout leaders:

BALOO stands for Basic Adult Leader Outdoor Orientation. It’s designed to introduce Cub Scout leaders to the newly expanded opportunities for pack overnight camping.
This is an energetic training that will cover everything you need to know to plan and run a pack overnighter. It’s more than just camping-it includes ideas for outdoor activities, games and ceremonies; information on selecting and using camping equipment; how to run a campfire program; and hands-on Cub Scout cooking demonstrations! In short, everything you need to know to make your pack overnighter a fun, successful event!
“OWL”, is one of the most comprehensive, informative and fun trainings you will ever attend. You will learn skills and training in areas such as: leadership, communications, campsite preparation, bedding types, weather, building campfires, cooking, skits, songs, ceremonies, and much more. Best of all, you will be better prepared, to lead your boys down the trail to becoming Boy Scouts.
Webelos den campouts serve to move the Webelos Scout to the next level of the BSA’s ever-increasing challenge in the outdoors. The boy and his parent will be introduced to the basics of Boy Scout camping. A trained Webelos den leader who has completed position-specific training and Outdoor Leader Skills for Webelos Leaders should conduct these events. Webelos dens are encouraged to participate in joint den-troop campouts, particularly in the fifth-grade year.
Designed specifically for Webelos den leaders and their assistants, the Outdoor Leader Skills for Webelos Leaders course teaches outdoor-related skills through demonstration and hands-on practice. Webelos den leaders should attend this training before conducting Webelos overnight camping with the boys and parents of the den. In addition to covering basic camping skills, this training features planning campouts and finding resources.
Cub Scout Den Leader training is a great way for you to gain the knowledge of how to safely and effectively run a local den meeting. This training helps Den Leaders and Assistant Den Leaders with the program aids and planning strategies needed to be successful leaders.
The success of a Tiger Cub den depends on active, enthusiastic families working alongside a knowledgeable, well-trained den leader.
The Tiger Cub den leader plans and carries out a year-round program of activities for the Tiger Cub den and gives the
program continuity. Using the concept of shared leadership, the Tiger Cub den leader works with a different boy–adult partner team each month to plan two den meetings, a Go See It outing, and the den’s part in the pack meeting. (Some teams may serve more than one month, depending on den size).
Shared leadership is a key element of the Tiger Cub program because direct adult involvement is important for boys at this age. Through this sharing of leadership, each boy and adult partner team is given an opportunity to lead. Shared leadership also brings a wealth of knowledge and variety to the program as each host team has
something different to bring to the program.
As a Tiger Cub den leader, you willprovide experience and continuity throughout the program year.
Advanced training in leadership and team development, bringing together all programs -
