Purview:Pack Leadership
Reports to:Pack Committee Chairperson

The Pack Trainer conducts, or facilitates, the training of leaders and parents in the pack. Pack Trainer is a registered pack position and is a voting member of the pack Committee. Under the direction of the Pack Committee Chairperson, the pack trainer helps leaders and parents understand purposes, policies, and procedures of the Cub Scouting program. The pack trainer orients parents and leaders and guides pack leaders in carrying out their specific position responsibilities. The pack trainer promotes training to help leaders learn to plan and conduct pack and den meetings and activities. Regardless of the size of the pack committee, every pack should have one of its committee members registered as a pack trainer.

The goal of the pack trainer is to have 100 percent of the pack leaders trained in their position responsibilities. New leaders and adult family members should receive orientation within one week of joining the pack, and leaders should receive position-specific training within 30 days.

  • It is recommended that the pack trainer have at least one year of experience in a leadership position in Cub Scouting, preferably as a Cub Scout or Webelos den leader. Pack trainers should be trained at a district or council Trainer's EDGE (Formerly Trainer Development Conference). The Pack Trainer is a member of the Pack Committee. For new packs and those lacking experienced leaders, an experienced leader from the district training team or another pack may be appointed as pack trainer until the new leaders gain experience.
