  1. Thank you all for the quick responses and helpful info. I'm still slowly digging through all the material, but I think the best course of action would be to press on forward as a Lone Scout. I am located in Asia, and have contacted the local district about getting started. I will certainly be using this forum heavily as a resource in the future!
  2. Greetings, Scouters. A couple of weeks ago I was approached by a friend who asked if I was interested in leading his 7-year-old in scouts. I know nothing about scouts but I wanted to help out and told him I would do some research on how to make that happen. Holy wow. What an information overload. I definitely see the incredible value of the program but it's very overwhelming for someone like me with little prior experience. My main question revolves around something that might have appeared obvious: There is no den around here. I would have to become a Den Leader for this one child. This is because we are living overseas and there isn't any interest from the other American children around to have more than a one-person den. So many of the activities I see throughout the handbook seem like they'd be difficult/impossible to pull off due to our location and lack of numbers. Is this even possible? How would I go about facilitating this? I'm worried that we will get neck-deep in the program and realize we can't actually complete it. I'm still not even sure I understand the difference between a Cubmaster and Den Leader. I obviously don't have a uniform and getting an official one here would be tricky and significantly more expensive. Would anyone be able to give a few tips or pointers on where to go from here? This child really wants to be involved with the program but I'm at a bit of a loss.
