Lion Rank Advancement
Here’s How to Help Your Scout Advance!
Our Lion rank has exciting indoor and outdoor activities specifically designed for kindergarten age youth and their adult partners. Adult partners (guardians) are there to support and guide, allowing the new Cub Scout to discover risks and rewards under the security of adult supervision. Lion Scouts learn by doing!
The Lion rank is earned by completing five required adventures:
- "Lion’s Honor" is about Cub Scout Basics and Game Playing with your friends in your Den.
- "Animal Kingdom" is about service in your home and community.
- "Fun on the Run" is about exercise and nutrition and play.
- "King of the Jungle" is about citizenship and leadership.
- "Mountain Lion" is about the outdoors and hiking.
Every Lion Handbook is packaged with an adult leader guide to help you. Parents/guardians or the den leader approve each requirement by signing the youth’s handbook. Youth receive a sticker and/or an adventure loop for each adventure. In addition to the five “required” adventures, a Lion Scout can work on additional “elective” adventures.
More information about the Lion program is available at this Lion resource page, which has both fun ideas for dens to do as a group and Family-Led Adventure resources for parents to do on their own schedules.
