Cub Scout Packs recruit leaders from the parents. Troops get leaders crossing over from Packs with their Scouts. Packs are organized and run by the adult leaders. Troops are “Youth Lead” and the adult leadership is there to give guidance and structure. In scouting, we have two sides of adult leadership. Cub Masters, Den Leaders, and Scoutmasters are “Scout Facing” Leaders. The larger and as important leadership is going on backstage. Committee members and charter organization representatives (COR’s) for Pakes and Troops are a critical role for adults. There is a place for everyone, no matter their commitment level.
