New and existing Cub Scouts are invited to come. *New Lion Scouts (kindergarten) should checkout the Mountain Lion Adventure Hike on October 4th.

Lions answers the call for fun, character-building after-school adventures for boys 5 or 6 years old or in kindergarten. Lions begins its second season as a nationwide pilot program in the 2017-2018 Scouting year. Pilot is the operative word here. It means this program is evolving based on feedback from parents and BSA professionals. Based on that feedback, as well as surveys and focus groups, the BSA has some changes to announce for this fall.

Congratulations on Joining Scouting as a Kindergartener! You are now a Lion Scout. Your first year of scouting will hold many adventures, and we want to start you out on the right foot! All the Kindergarten Lion Families are invited to a Lion Event from 6 to 7:30 pm on Wed, October 4 at Cornhusker Council's Outdoor Education Center. We will complete requirements for the Mountain Lion Adventure including a Hike, Snack Station, and Learn about the Cub Scout 6 Essentials.
