Lion Trail

The Lion Trail
Lion Den 10

To earn the rank of Lion, your scout needs a Lion Workbook to begin working on the Lion Trail. Below is an outline of the material covered in the workbook. 

NoteSome of these activities are done at home and signed off by the parent after the boy has completed the task. The handbook should be shown to the Den Leader - who records and tracks his progress.

NoteThere are no performance requirements for completing tasks. Simply participating and doing one's best in an activity constitutes completion.
