About Den Mother Training  
          Crescent Bay Council Den Mothers participated in their own special training.

Beginning in the late 1940's, Los Angeles Area Council teamed up with the May Co. department store to sponsor the annual Den Mother's workshop. The one-day program included information on den organization and activities for Cub Scouts. May Co. Den mother workshops were conducted annually through 1963.

           Two years later, Crescent Bay Council began organizing its own scaled back version of the Den Mother Workshops, which were organized on a District level.

           Over lapping the Work Shops, the Council's training committee developed Cub leader programs in the early 1960's. This training was  open to Den Mothers and other parents involved with Cub Packs.
