We have a very strong cub section which meets every Tuesday during term time. Between
them our cub leaders have decades of experience to share.
Cub Scouts are young people aged between 8 and 10 1/2, who make up the second section
of the Scouting family, between Beavers and Scouts.
Under some circumstances, Cub Scouts can join the Pack as young as 7 1/2 if, for
example, they have friends joining at the same time, or are mature enough to move
on early from Beavers, (and there is space in the Pack). Such decisions are taken
by Cub and Beaver Scout leaders.
During their time in the Pack, Cub Scouts will get a chance to try lots of different
activities like swimming, music, exploring, computing and collecting.
There are a range of badges available which Cub Scouts can wear on their uniforms
to show everyone how well they're doing.
Cub Scouts also get to go on camps, trips and days out, to places like the zoo, theme
parks or a farm.
Structure and organisation
A Pack of Cub Scouts is organised into Sixes, with each Six named after a colour,
and a Sixer and a Seconder in charge.
“One of the reasons I became a Scout was to spend more time with friends in the outdoors.
It’s among the greatest experiences in life and should be accessible to everyone,
no matter where they live, what they look like or how they grew up”
