What is the Lion Pilot Program?
This is a Boy Scouts of America pilot being tested this year in Councils across the country, including ours.
The Lion Pilot Program – launched in select Cub Scout Packs across the Simon Kenton Council in the Fall of 2016!
The Lion Pilot Program was developed by the BSA to provide kindergarten-age boys with a Scouting experience that is suitable to their age, skills and experience levels. Kindergarten is a time where doors are opening – going to a school, perhaps getting on the bus, building strong foundations that will carry on through school careers. It’s also a time where families are exploring options when it comes to engaging their children in the community.
The Lion Pilot Program…
IS an introduction to Cub Scouts
IS for Kindergarten Boys only
IS a Family shared program
IS NOT a Sibling program
IS NOT designed for other age groups, they have their own program

Pack Registration is Now Open for Fall Participation in the Lion Pilot
In view of this successful first year, Simon Kenton Council has committed to continuing our participation in the national Lion pilot program. In fact, we are expanding it. This year ALL packs in the Simon Kenton Council are invited to participate. Here are the steps to join the program:
- Register your Pack now for participation in the Fall here.
- Identify an existing, experienced Scouter in your pack to serve as a “Lion Guide.” Note: this person will serve as a facilitator for the new Scout parents in the Fall rather than a traditional Den Leader. More on the role here.
- Recruit Kindergarteners in the Fall.
- Run the program as designed.
