Lion Required Adventures

2016-2017 Pilot Program


PILOT PROGRAM

The LION program is being tested in 198 Boy Scout Councils during the 2016-2017 program year.
Only those Cub Scout Packs in those councils that wish to use the program may do so.


The Lion program forms a strong foundation for a lifetime of fun and meaningful family adventures. There are 12 adventures in the Lion program. The Five adventures described below are required for the Lion to earn the Lion badge. The required adventures help boys explore important Scouting ideas. The remaining seven adventures are known as elective adventures. Each adventure is designed to help your son have fun and learn useful things.

There is no required order for the adventures; however, it is recommend that dens complete the Lion's Honor adventure first. Dens should use local climate and other considerations to determine the best order of delivery of the adventures.
