What is a Den Walker and Who can be one?

Den Walker is a volunteer that spends the day with the Scouts. They provide support and supervision of the Scouts, making sure everybody moves to the next station with the group, and assisting program staff when necessary. We ask that each pack provide two Den Walkers each day. It can be the same volunteers all week or different volunteers each day. Please let us know in advance who will be attending as Den Walkers. All adults must complete PA Act 15 Background Check and Youth Protection Training. Den Walkers who are in camp all five days will receive a refund for half of their one child’s day camp fee. All Den Walkers will receive a T-shirt to wear for the time they are volunteering. Additional T-shirts are available for purchase.
