Leaders and Roles

In Cub Scout packs, Akela is a symbol of wisdom, authority, and leadership. Akela is anyone who acts as a leader to the Scout. Akela can be a Cubmaster, Den Leader, teacher, parent or guardian depending on where the guidance takes place. In den meetings, it is the Den Leader who is Akela. During pack meetings it is the Cubmaster. At home, the parents fill this role.


Below is a list of leaders who make Pack 198 great for your boys.

Every pack is under the supervision of a pack committee consisting of at least three members (chair, secretary, and treasurer). By handling administrative and support tasks, the pack committee allows the Cubmaster, den leaders, and their assistants to focus on working directly with the Cub Scouts. Our pack committee members are denoted with * below, and are led by the pack committee chair.
