For Cub Scouts, 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. Cub Scouts 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 Scout 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 help the organisation of the Cub Scout Pack, giving the Cubs experience of leadership and an opportunity to learn new skills.
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.
Cubs Scouts wear a dark green sweatshirt with a Group scarf (called a necker) and a woggle in the colour of their Six. The locations of where the badges are positioned on the uniform is shown below. There is also a great range of Scouting and i-scout leisure wear for the less formal occasions...such as halfway up a mountain!
The Cub Scout Promise
I promise to do my best;
To be kind and helpful;
And to love God.
