The Program
The Lion program weaves traditional Scouting concepts of character development, leadership skills, personal fitness and citizenship into activities that are age-appropriate and fun for the boys and their parents.

The activities introduce the family to Cub Scouting, and provide an exciting way for the little guys to explore the world around them. The program will fuel their imagination, creativity and fun as they experience the growth Scouting can provide. At the end of the Lion year, they “graduate” to Tiger and advance through Cub Scouting.

Lion Adventures and Pack Involvement
"Adventures" (themed 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. They earn stickers, not beltloops like the Cub Scouts. Additionally, Lion parent partners will each take turns filling the role as the "Lion Guide" as they meet two times a month.  

Lion dens may be invited to participate in a few of the monthly Pack meetings, but care has been taken to ensure that any meetings or activities they attend are lively, fun and engaging for boys of Lion age. Boys are restless by nature, younger boys even more so. So, we hand-select the best of the best for our Lions to engage with the Pack. 

Pack 1910 Lions:
Not all Packs were permitted to participate in part of this pilot program. Pack 1910 was part of a chosen group in the Mustang District of the Longhorn Council to be part of a national group which will provide continual feedback with the experiences of our participants to help this grow and be offered everywhere!  Pack 1910 has a rich Scouting program with experienced, trained leadership to help make this successful! 
More information is available by watching this informational video for Lion adult partners.

Meetings

Lions meet twice a month.  One for a den meeting and another for an outing. Meeting nights are set based on the den members' preferences and mutual availability.
