Lion Pilot Program Update

The Lion pilot program continues to go strong in 2017 at Patriots’ Path Council.  We wanted to share with you some updates from the national service center regarding the Lion pilot program.

  • The Lion pilot program ended 2016 with 204 councils and 30,559 new members. Unofficial year-end numbers for 2017 are 46,851 in 245 councils.
  • Focus groups and surveys were conducted that indicate overall success of the program – youth and families are enjoying the program, indicating that they believe it provides value to their child.
  • Adventure Loops are now available to Lions, in addition to their stickers.
  • A motion has been made and unanimously approved by the Program Development Support Committee for a recommendation to the Membership Growth Standing Committee to move the Lion program from a pilot to an official part of the Cub Scouting program. Pending approval by the committee, it may be on the consent agenda for the National Executive Board during the February meeting.
