Become a Leader

Parents are the lifeblood of our pack. Without them, our program would be limited and our Scouts would be missing out on the fun.

It is easy to become a Trained Leader in our pack. ALL the required training can be taken online - so you can take the training at your own pace.

There are many positions with varying responsibility and skills required. Some positions work directly with Scouts to deliver the program and others work more behind the scenes to ensure the pack is a healthy functioning organization able to deliver maximum adventure.

Are you interested in any of these leadership roles? Please contact us, we can accommodate any level of involvement. Afterall, many hands make light work.
