Lions Program Coming this Fall!

Lions is a national pilot program of the Boy Scouts of America for kindergarten-age boys (5 years old by September 1). This program will only be offered by packs in the Northern Lights Council that apply and are selected to participate.

Lions is a family-oriented program. A youth and his parent or caring adult partner join Scouting together. A collection of six to eight boys and their adult partners meet in a group called a Den. Dens will meet approximately twice per month. They have fun participating in den meetings and outings while making memories together. The Lion pilot encourages boys to learn and explore through hands-on, high-energy activities. Adult partners take turns leading a den meeting or outing during the year. Most meetings and outings are approximately 45 minutes in length. Boys are recognized for their accomplishments as they work towards the Lion badge. The Lion badge is earned by completing five adventures (out of a total of 12). Adventures are completed during the den meetings and outings. When an adventure is completed, the youth receives a sticker to put in his keepsake Lion Adventure Book. Den meetings and outings are facilitated by a Lion Guide and participating parents. The Lion Guide is an experienced Cub Scout leader. He or She will lead the first den meeting of the year. The Lion Guide will help each adult partner lead one of the remaining meetings. The den meeting plans are provided in the Lion Parent and Leader Guidebook. The uniform is a Lion t-shirt, available at Scout Shop locations in August.

A fact sheet and Pack Interest form can be downloaded here. The interest forms must be submitted by June 1 to be considered for inclusion in the pilot for 2017.
