A child who is 6 years old or is in the year 1 or kindergarten is a Lion, and their adventures are found in the Lion Handbook.
is a fun introduction to the Scouting program for kindergarten-age youth eager to get going! Lions do adventures with their adult partners and other Lions every month. This program introduces youth and their families to Scouting and the outdoors as it builds a foundation of character. Everything as a Lion is done with an adult partner.
A new Lion Scout receives a Lion Adventure Book. This is an activity book with pages to color, draw, and cut, all with guidance from the Lion's adult partner.
A Lion will need a Lion Scout Uniform which is a blue shirt and hat. This part of the cub scout trail is intended to take one school year, preparing the scout to begin Tiger adventures after kindergarten is completed.
The Lion program provides fun, hands-on activities for scouts to learn and grow while having a good time with their friends and family. The scout and adult partner do every part of the program together under the facilitation of a Lion Guide. The Lion den meets once a month to do things separately from the rest of the pack. These den meetings are done at a place and time convenient for the den members. The Lion den also joins all the other scouts to participate in a Pack meeting once a month. Meeting sounds pretty boring, but a good scout meeting is active, fun, and interesting. The 45 minutes to an hour time should be packed with games, activities, and safe adventure.
Lion Scouts have fun exploring and doing adventures that move them ahead towards their Lion rank. The Lion rank is earned by completing five adventures. The Lion's adult partner participates the whole time, but the recognition items are only for the scouts.
