Den Chief Responsibilities in Open Discussion - Program Posted July 30 I am not sure what the purpose of this inspection was, but I would assume looking for "contraband", the Den Chief had already inspected for cleanliness earlier when the cub scouts were present. Neither the Den Leader or Den Chief have confirmed that the belongings were gone through, but they also have not been asked yet. My son and his tent mate approached my spouse saying they thought someone had gone through their stuff, and then later reported the younger sibling of the Den Chief confirmed to them that he went through their stuff while out of camp. I realize this is hardly concrete evidence, but it is enough that it has me questioning what happened. I don't know if the adult's stuff was gone through because my spouse's trunk was locked and we have not spoken to other parents at camp. Before I start asking questions, I wanted to get a frame of reference. Is it typical for a Den Leader to instruct a Den Chief to do these inspections? Is it typical for them to do it on their own? Is in typical to inspect parents tents & stuff? Is it typical to bypass the parents even when they are present for these inspections?
