The Lion Program is Coming to Coronado Area Council!
The Lion Program is coming to the Coronado Area Council for Kindergarten boys starting in the fall of 2016.
Units may apply to host a Lion Den in their Pack.
Lion is a national pilot program of the Boy Scouts of America for kindergarten-age boys. The mission of the Boy Scouts of America is to help young people build character, learn citizenship, develop personal fitness, become effective leaders, and have fun in the outdoors. Cub Scouting is a program of the Boy Scouts of America for boys in the first through fifth grades. The Lion pilot is exploring the value of a Scouting program for kindergarten-age boys. (Boys must be 5 years old by September 1.)
Council's that have been using the Lion Program are seeing great results with families expressing the fun and enjoyment they are having as a result of their participation in the Lion Program.
The Lion Program has been designed to be utilized exactly as planned so that a proper evaluation of its outcomes and results can be conducted. It will be most important that Lion Dens follow the prescribed program exactly, making no changes or edits.
