A new Scouting program called “Lion” for Kindergarten-aged boys will be available as a national pilot for select Boy Scouts of America councils, including the Maui County Council.

Starting this fall, the new program will combine traditional Scouting concepts of character development, leadership skills, personal fitness, and citizenship into activities that are age-appropriate and fun for the boys and their parents.

The Maui County Council says the activities introduce the family to Scouting activities and principles while providing an exciting way for the boys to explore the world around them and that the program will fuel their imagination, creativity, and fun as they experience the growth Scouting can provide.

At the end of the Lion year, they “graduate” to Tiger, and advance through Cub Scouting.

For more information, visit the Scouting table at the “Back to School” event at Queen Ka‘ahumanu Center on Saturday, Aug. 5, from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. or call Maui County Council Scout Executive Duc Button at 244-3724.
