In Cub Scout packs, Akela is a symbol of wisdom, authority, and leadership. An Akela is anyone who acts as a leader to the Scout. An Akela can be a Cubmaster, Den Leader, parent or teacher depending on where the guidance takes place. In den meetings, it is the Den Leader who is Akela. During pack meetings it is the Cubmaster. At home, parents fill this role.
Like any successful Pack, ours relies completely upon the time, creativity and energy of volunteers. While some volunteers may have prior Scouting experience, many do not...and that is OK! As the Cub Scout motto says, just "do your best".
The descriptions of several Scout Leadership positions are listed on this page. In addition, there are many, many volunteer opportunities available throughout the year. Every scout parent should be ready to volunteer in some capacity. We really need you to participate and help make our Field Trips, Campouts, Bake Sales, Derbys, Regattas, community activities, meetings, and more a success for our boys! Please check our website regularly for openings and sign up.
Youth Protection Training
Prior to participating in scout activities, adults must complete the Boy Scouts of America required online Youth Protection Training. It takes about 20 minutes to complete. Remember to download or print your Certificate of Completion, then send a copy to your Den Leader who will forward it to the Registrar.
