BSA -- Cub Scouting - What happened to Lion?

The Lion program was dropped in 1967 when the Webelos program became
the program for 10 year-olds. The WEBELOS rank replaced the Lion rank,
and the Arrow of Light replaced the Webelos rank. Also, in 1967, the
Bobcat cloth patch was introduced.

1973 - updated Cub Scout program introduced with new colorful insignia for Wolf
and Bear and NEW patch insignia (in addition to pin) for Bobcat.

1980 - Term "Den Mother" officially retired; all male and female leaders of
dens will now be simply called "Den Leaders" and "Assistant Den Leaders".

1986 - Cub Scouting expands to a four-year program, to include a two-year
WEBELOS Cub Scout program. Tiger Cubs implemented as separate Pack program
