LION DEN LEADER TRAINING

THURSDAY, AUGUST 24, 2017

7:00PM - 8:30PM

The Heart of Virginia Council is participating in the national Lion Pilot Program.  Lions are Kindergarten aged Cub Scouts.  Having a Lion Den Leader take this training is one of the requirements for a pack to participate in the pilot program.  Anyone who wishes to learn more about the Lion Program can participate in the training.  The Lion Den Leader Training will go over: how a Lion Den should be run, the differences and similarities between the Lion and Tiger program, the Lion uniform, and the Lion advancement trail.

 

Packs are welcome to sign up to participate in the Lion Program for the first time during the 2017-2018 school year by doing the following (returning packs only need to let their District Executive know that they will participate again this year):   

1.  The pack must have the approval of the District Key-3 to have a Lion Program.

2.  The Cubmaster, the Pack Committee Chairman, and the Charter Representative must all agree to have and support a Lion Den.

3.  The pack leadership must recruit a Lion Den Leader and an Assistant Lion Den Leader.  These people will run Lion Den Meetings, and function just like regular Den Leaders and Assistants.

4.  The Lion Den Leader must attend a face to face training for Lion Den Leaders.

5.  The pack must have a calendar of events and meetings for Lions turned in to their District Executive before we will allow them to invite kindergarteners to join.

6.  Lion Den Leaders and Cubmasters with Lion Dens must agree to participate in two online surveys, one conducted mid-year and one conducted at the end of the program year.

Cub Packs that meet the criteria above will be prepared to support their Lion dens and the program quality will be strong, leading to good retention of the boys and their parents. Packs wishing to apply to have a Lion Den should complete the “HOVC Lion Den Application Form” and give it to their District Executive.

Our Membership team and our Districts are excited about this opportunity to add the Lion program to Cub Scouting. We are confident this will be a success. Please let us know if you have questions or comments regarding the implementation of the Lion Program.
