Our Bear den is comprised of boys and girls in third grade coming from Due West, Hayes, Vaughn & Ford Elementary Schools.  Currently, our den has 9 members – a crew of spirited young men with lots of energy!

Meetings: Bears meet the Second and Fourth Thursday of each month at 6:30 pm at the Troop 540 Boy Scout Hut adjacent to Due West United Methodist Church (DWUMC).  We know that your child often also participate in one or more sports or other activities and conflicts happen. We get it. It’s okay! Scouts can work on many achievements at home so they can still work through the program.

Den Leader: Our Bear den is being led by Mr. Giovanni Pipia and assisted by Mr. Kevin Luczynski and Mr. Emilio Mattricciani  along with our Cubmaster, Chris Hannah.  Contact Giovanni at .

Parent Involvement: Scouts will have a much better scouting experience if parents (dads and/or moms) get involved!  What does that mean?  Help out at den meetings with our activity and go on our camping trips and other outings.  We have some great stuff planned for this year, so take advantage of it!

Bear Priorities: The Bear achievement program focuses on attaining our six requirements, along with one elective achievement.  Requirements include pocket knife safety, campsite and camping preparation, outdoor code and wildlife conservation, building projects with hand tools, duty to God and community service.
