Cub Scouts (8-10)

What are Cub Scouts?

Cubs, open to boys and girls, are the second section of the Scouting family. They meet weekly in a Cub Scout Pack and are split into smaller groups called Sixes. Cubs take part in a wide range of activities designed to be interesting and challenging. A Cub Scout meeting consists of games and activities with plenty of time spent outdoors.

Camps are some of the most memorable events of the year for Cubs. Cubs follow a progressive programme helping them earn challenge and activity badges, leading to the top award the Chief Scout's Silver Award

Where and when do we meet?

There are 2 Cub Packs in the Scout Group. One meets on Wednesdays from 7pm to 8.30pm and the other on Thursdays, from 7.15 pm to 8 . 45 pm in the Scout Centre during school term time.
