Lions are a new pilot programmed that the Orange County Boy Scouts is running. Boys must be 5 years old by September 30 to participate.
This is a great way to get new members into your units. Studies have shown that parents want to put their kids in extracurricular activities at a younger age.
Lions, and tigers, and bears, oh my!
Lion Program Is Permanent
The pilot label on the Lions program has been removed after one year of beta testing in selected councils. Lion Dens are now an official permanent part of the BSA program. So what are you waiting for? Go get some lions!
