LIONS:       Cub Scouting’s program for kindergarten-age youth
• Recognizing the success of the national Lion
  pilot program, the Boy Scouts of America’s
  Board of Directors have approved integrating
  Lions into the Cub Scout program empowering
  chartered partners with packs to offer the
  experience to Kindergarten-age children
  nationwide.
• Units are no longer required to be pre-
  approved.
• All supplies will be available in the Scout Shop
  by late summer.
• Lions Guides will now become Den Leaders,
  however they will still continue to engage
  families to take turns leading meetings.

LIONS (continued)
• Lions are kindergarten-age youth who must be 5
  years old or the year before First Grade and not yet 7
  years old.
• These Scouts use the normal BSA application. In the
  grade area put “K.”
• The Lion uniform will remain the t-shirt, hat, and
  belt. Cub Scout blue uniform optional.
• Lions will NOT earn bobcat.
• The den meets twice per month: once for a den
  meeting and once for an outing or pack meeting.
• Once they have completed the Lion program, Scouts
  will wear the blue Cub Scout Uniform wearing the
  patch where the AOL patch normally goes.
• Lions can participate in family camping.
• Lions can participate in popcorn and camp card sales.

Primary Research Key Takeaways To Date
Across all segments:
 • The current curriculum for the Cub Scout and Boy Scout programs is deemed relevant
   for both boys and girls.
 • There is high receptivity and interest in joining the program at both the Cub Scout
   and Boy Scout level.

Among Boy Scouts and Venturers, there is high interest in expanding the
program with minimal impact on current program participation.
If a program for girls age 11 to 18 is added, respondents are generally in favor of
allowing girls to earn the Eagle Scout rank and participate in Order of the Arrow.
Survey-based estimates indicate expanding the Cub Scout program to include
girls 5-10 years old could potentially bring in a significant increase in
membership.
Successful early adopter soft launch of Cub
Here’s where   Scouting, with the official launch later this year.

we are today   A program for older girls is scheduled to launch
               February 1, 2019.

               All youth who join our program and fulfill the
               rank requirements can earn Eagle.

               Troops will be single gender. A linked troop
               structure has been approved where adult
               leadership, except Scoutmaster, may be shared
               between troops.

What Are We Hearing?
One father said he has no plans to put a cap on his
daughter’s dreams.
“My girl can be anything she wants to be...and I’m
not going to stop her.”

“To the BSA staff, thank you for making this
happen. My family is now all in Scouts. My
husband was never registered before because I
did everything (granted he’s very busy). It was the
fact that his daughter wanted to join that he
joined too. Got his full uniform yesterday. Family
scouting is a very real thing.”

“I think it will be a great bonding experience and
will create lifelong memories for us.”

“I’m pleased to say that several of the girls
brought their brothers to join.”
How will it work?
How will it work?
Family Cub Scouting seems straightforward
