Cub Scouts is for boys and girls aged 8-11, meeting on Thursday evenings from 6:30 – 8:00pm.
We have fun doing a lot of interesting things! We play games, learn codes and skills, and go on exciting outings and camps. Cub Scouts all help each other, and try to help other people too.
As a cub scout you’ll get together with other boys and girls your age each week and be led into adventure! You’ll wear your own Cub Scout uniform and collect special badges to put on your uniform to show your achievements.
There are around 24 boys and girls in a full Cub Scout Pack. The Pack is divided into ‘Sixes’, so named because each ‘Six’ aims to have 6 Cubs in it. One of the first badges a cub puts on their uniform is the colour patch of their Six when they are accepted into the pack. One of the boys or girls in the group is the ‘Sixer’ (a bit like the Captain of your school sports team), shown by a Sixer Badge above the pocket of their uniform. The Sixer often has a `Second’ as a helper (a bit like a Vice-Captain) who wears the “Second” badge in the same place.
Cubs is led by a volunteer adult leadership team, mostly made up of parents in the Scout Group. Their names are taken from characters in the famous Rudyard Kipling story “The Jungle Book” and create a fun and friendly setting for Cubs.
