For Cubs, excitement and adventure are key. Their programme offers 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.
The Cub Pack is the second section of the Scout Group following on from Beavers. Cub Scouts are young people aged between 8 and 10 ½.
The Cub Pack is organised into small groups called Sixes, each headed up by an older Cub called a Sixer, with a Seconder as well. Sixes can be used in a number of ways to facilitate the organisation of the Cub Scout Pack.
We award points to the six whenever we see examples of being a great Cub! The six with the most points at the end of the term gets prizes! The current table of points is below.
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 and personal development, rather than meeting set standards, is the key approach, and there are a range of badges and challenge awards that Cub Scouts can gain to recognise their achievements.
Further information about badges and awards for the Cub section can be found here.
The Cub Scout Promise
I promise that I will do my best to do my duty to God
and to the Queen,
to help other people
and to keep the Cub Scout Law.
The Cub Scout Law:
Cub Scouts always do their best
Think of others before themselves
And do a good turn every day.
The Cub Scout Motto:
Cubs wear a dark green sweatshirt with a Group scarf (often called a necker) and a woggle in the colour of their Six. The expectation is that for most evenings Cubs will wear smart trousers and smart shoes.
