Our Council has been approved for the Lion Scouts Program!

Starting this fall, our council will be participating in the Lion Scouts pilot program.  We received official approval from national & our Council Executive Board recently approved our implementation of this program. This new program will welcome kindergarten-age boys into the Scouting family for the first time. It’s an exciting opportunity to grow the Scouting movement and we’ve heard through the grapevine that many of our packs are looking forward to offering the Lion Scouts program in their packs!

There is still a lot of planning work and training yet to happen in getting ready for Lion Scouts in our council and offering the Lion Scouts program may not be right for every pack at this time.

Why is the BSA moving now to implement the Lion Scouts program?  Rather than restate what’s already been written by our Chief Scout Executive Mike Surbaugh, please take a few minutes to read this article about Lion Scouts.

Stay tuned & check back to this website for more information in the weeks ahead.  For now, click on the Read more: link below for more information.
