Lions (Kindergarten)

Our Lion Den is made up of scouts that are in Kindergarten. The Den is led by Heather Williamson and meets bi-weekly at 6:30pm.

The lion rank is an official part of Cub Scouting — just like Tiger, Wolf, Bear and Webelos, and like their older pack-mates, will get to earn adventure loops.

Over the course of a year, Lions will complete all five of the required adventures (compared to at least seven for Tiger and above). They also may complete one or more of the nine elective adventures.

Lions can also have lots of fun doing elective adventures and earning additional adventure loops beyond what’s required.

Can Lions camp?

Yes. Lions can participate in family camping with their pack.

Lion dens shouldn’t participate in overnight den-specific camping, but pack and family camping are encouraged. Day camp and activities such as shooting sports are reserved for older Cub Scouts. Lion dens should focus on exciting (and age-appropriate) adventures and fun family outings.

Can Lions participate in the Pinewood Derby?

Yep!

Do Lions wear the blue Cub Scout uniform shirt?

No. They wear the blue Lion T-shirt and blue Cub Scout belt. The hat, neckerchief and neckerchief slide are optional and can be worn after the completion of the “Gizmos and Gadgets” adventure.

What is the Lion rank strip?

Once Lions complete their rank, they can wear the rectangular Lion patch on the upper left of their T-shirt. (That’s the Lion’s left, or over his or her heart.)

When Lions move into Tigers, they can sew the patch under the left pocket — below where the Tiger rank patch will go.

Do Lions now earn Bobcat first before working on the Lion rank?

No, Lions work on their Lion rank first. When they become a Tiger, they’ll begin to work on Bobcat.
