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.
When do we meet?
We meet on Tuesday evenings.
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 the Group Scout Leader in consultation with the 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. Please refer to the ‘Badges’ link on our web site.
There are activity badges and Challenge Awards that we can achieve.
The highest award that we can gain in the Cub Section is the CHIEF SCOUT’S SILVER AWARD.
Cub Scouts also get to go on trips and days out and they will be able to go camping with the rest of the Pack and take part in all kinds of outdoor activities.
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.
The recommended maximum size of a Cub Scout Pack is 36 Cub Scouts. To meet local circumstances this maximum number may be increased, either in the long term or the short term with the agreement of the Group Scout Leader.
