Pack Activity

We are having an activity coming up and have a few parents that are not able to attend. As long as there are two registered leaders at the activity they can leave their kids correct? Or does a parents have to attend? Is it different based on den age?

Lion and Tiger Scouts must be accompanied by their adult partner. Older Cub Scouts are not required to have a parent present, although depending on the type of activity, it might be a good idea to have a parent attend.

Adult Supervision
Two registered adult leaders 21 years of age or over are required at all Scouting activities, including meetings. There must be a registered female adult leader 21 years of age or over in every unit serving females. A registered female adult leader 21 years of age or over must be present for any activity involving female youth. Notwithstanding the minimum leader requirements, age- and program-appropriate supervision must always be provided. (Youth Protection and Barriers to Abuse FAQs)

So if we have a fundraiser dinner and there are 2-4 adult leaders there does that count for the lions and tigers? Can one of those leaders watch over a lion of their parent can’t attend.

Who is/can be considered an “adult partner”

The adult partner is the adult who is registered as an Adult Partner to be present with the Lion or Tiger Scout at all activities. The adult partner is usually a parent or legal guardian.
