To participate in this pilot, please complete the memorandum of understanding (MOU) at the link provided below.
Only family packs approved by the Midnight Sun Council with approval from their chartered organization may conduct the Family Den Pilot Program.
If all conditions of the MOU are met by your pack, it will stay in the pilot as long as the pilot remains active.
Please ensure your pack is designated as a family pack. Here’s an easy way to check:
– Visit BeAScout.org
– Enter the zip code for your chartered organization
– Find your pack in the search results. You’re a family pack if the entry indicates: Dens for Boys and Girls
Any Pack that would like to participate will be able to structure dens with both boys and girls in the same dens assuming they meet the following criteria:
- The chartering organization agrees.
- The Pack will use Scoutbook to assign dens.
- Understand that Arrow of Light dens WILL remain single gender in preparation for Scouts BSA
- Assign a registered leader to represent the Pack to the council for the purpose of this pilot.
Units approved will be provided a Memorandum of Understanding that must be signed by the Chartering Organization Representative and Pack Committee Chair.
