Dens – Lions

Lions - kindergarten

The Lion program, like all Scouting programs, weaves the concepts of character development, leadership skills, personal fitness, and citizenship into activities that are age-appropriate and fun.

Lion Adventures, Uniforms and Pack Involvement

“Adventures” (themed sets of activities and experiences) will assist Lion families in exploring the world around them. As they complete the requirements for each adventure, Lions will earn an adventure sticker to be placed in their Lion Adventure Book. Lions earn stickers, not adventure loops (belt loops) as they will do in Cub Scouting. Additionally, Lions will be led by parents filling the role of “Lion Guides” and will meet as dens of six to eight kindergarten-age children.

Lions will wear their own approved uniform, a Lion t-shirt to help the Lions feel unique and special as they should not wear the Cub Scout uniform until they are old enough to officially transition into Cub Scouting as a Tiger. Lion dens may be invited to participate in a few pack meetings, but kids are restless by nature, younger kids even more so.  Instead, meaningful and fun activities are planned for Lions in any meetings they attend. At the end of the kindergarten year, Lions will “graduate” into Cub Scouting as a Tiger – where even more fun and adventure will await!
