Den Chief Pledge

I promise to help the Scouts of my den to the best of my ability; to encourage, guide, and protect them in all den and pack activities, and to show them by my example what Boy Scouts of America stands for.

I will strive to be prompt and dependable, and to cooperate with the leaders in carrying out the den program As each Scout becomes eligible to move along the Cub Scouting trail, I will encourage the member and do all in my power to interest the Cub Scout in some day becoming a Boy Scout.
