Cub Scouts

The Cub Section is the second of the Scouting ladder and is for boys and girls usually aged between 8 and 10½. For Cubs, excitement and adventure are key. Our programmes offer a huge variety of activities surrounding areas of fitness, global and beliefs; whilst allowing them to be creative and get involved in their local communities. Cubs are introduced to exciting outdoor skills and take part in adventurous activities, as well as camps and residential experiences. Structure
A Cub Pack is usually organised into small groups called Sixes, each headed up by an older Cub called a Sixer, and often with a Seconder as well. Sixes can be used in a number of ways to facilitate the organisation of the Cub Scout Pack. They may provide a ‘home’ area for Cub Scouts to gather at points before, during or after the Six meeting.

During their time in the Pack, Cub Scouts will get a chance to try a wide range of different activities as well as going on trips, days out, and on camps. Participation rather than meeting set standards is the key approach, and there are a range of challenge awards and badges available that Cub Scouts can gain during their time in the section to recognise their achievements.

Cub Scouts enjoy new adventures while making new friends along the way. As well as regular weekly meeting, Cub Scouts also enjoy activity days, weekend camps and pack holidays. Boys and girls:

  • Go camping.
  • Play games.
  • Explore the outdoors.
  • Try adventurous activities – such as climbing, sailing and archery.
  • Meet people from their local community.
  • Experience the culture of other countries.
  • Keep themselves and others safe.
