The Den Meeting is the most important part of Cub Scouting. It is where Cub Scouts build friendships, work together to learn new things, and progress towards earning their common badge of rank. Dens are made up of around 6-8 boys or girls (although some dens can be smaller or larger) and are organized by Scout rank (grade level of the Scouts). Each rank has its own set of requirements for advancement that the individual dens work on. Dens in Pack 198 often meet together to work on common adventures (like STEM Nova awards) or adventures who have similar requirements (like aquatics). For specific information about each rank and the dens within each rank, see the links below.
