Cronk's Club - Cub Scout Leader Training Challenge
"Because Every Cub Scouts Deserves a Trained Leader"
Trained leaders provide an active, quality program at the den and pack levels and keep Tiger Cubs and their partners, Cub Scouts, and Webelos Scouts coming back for more fun week after week and month after month. When Cub Scouts participate regularly, the many purposes of Cub Scouting are achieved. Trained leaders increase boy retention and leader tenure.
Rick Cronk, Boy Scouts of America national president and sponsor of Cronk’s Club, will recognize Scouters at all levels for their efforts in increasing the number of trained leaders who are delivering a dynamic program. A special neckerchief will be awarded to those who meet the challenge.
