The Lion (Kindergarten) and Tiger (First Grade) Dens - Parents are most involved at these levels. The boy and his parent or guardian join the Den together and attend all meetings and activities together. An adult is selected to serve as the Den Leader (usually one of the parents) and coordinates the meetings. The Lion Den meets every other week and the Tiger Den meets weekly. Both Dens meet on a Tuesday at 6:30pm at Friedens Lutheran Church in Myerstown to participate in adventures, some of which involve outings; and they both attend the monthly Pack meeting.
The Wolf (Second Grade) and Bear (Third Grade) Dens -
Boys at this age are beginning to be more independent, and not every boy needs a parent at every meeting. The activities at these levels are designed to meet the boys' developmental needs. The Den consists of the boys, a Den Leader and Assistant Den Leader (usually parents of some of the boys), and sometimes a Den Chief (an older Boy Scout who helps the Den Leader). They meet on a Tuesday at 6:30pm at Friedens Lutheran Church in Myerstown, and they also attend the Pack meeting with their families.
The Webelos (Fourth Grade) and Arrow of Light (Fifth Grade) Dens - The Webelos Dens are much like the Wolf and Bear Dens, but there is more emphasis on the boys learning to take leadership roles, interacting more with Troop 20, and preparing them to become Boy Scouts.
