The Lion Den is comprised of Scouts who are in kindergarten or are 6 years old.
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 kindergarteners and their parents.
The activities introduce the family to Cub Scouting, and provide an exciting way for the kindergarteners to explore the world around them. The program will fuel their imagination, creativity and fun as they experience the growth Scouting can provide. Lions join with a parent or caring adult partner. Lions form dens of six to eight Lion pairs and have one den meeting and one outing per month.
Lions do not earn the Bobcat rank first. Lions work on their Lion first. When they become a Tiger they then begin to work on their Bobcat. Lions can earn adventure loops, the neckerchief and the Lion rank patch, which is to be worn on the front upper left-hand side of the t-shirt. When Lions cross over into Tigers they may were the patch on the bottom of the left-hand side pocket.

Cub Scouts earn adventures that are specific to their grade and rank. A number of adventures must be completed to earn the badge of rank for each grade level. Adventures may be earned in any order. Completion of adventures is how the aims of character, citizenship, leadership, and personal fitness are developed.
