I am on our District Training Team in the Capitol Area Council and I
am responsible for the Tiger Den Leader Breakout. Our training was
While you are correct about only being one Den Leader with no
assistants, all information that I found in my research led me to
believe that the Den Leader is to act more in the role of the
Assistant Den Leader each month, offering aide to the host parent-of-
the-month; excepting that the Den Leader is to be responsible for pre-
planning well in advance of particular meetings and to ensure follow-
through of those plans.
In other words, the Den Leader is to initiate contact with the host
parent at approximately the time of the 2nd meeting of the month
prior to the month for which this particular parent is the host.
Example: At the 2nd meeting of September, the Den Leader should make
contact with the upcoming host parent to begin planning for October's
meetings and activities. That is not to disqualify that all ideas
should be pre-planned for the whole year -- just begin working on the
details of those activities about 3 weeks in advance.
