cubs

 

Cub scouts, in various guises, have been part of Scouting since 1916. Originally known as Wolf Cubs, they represent the energy, optimism and cheerfulness for which Scouting is famous.

Cub scouts are boys and girls aged between 8-10½ years old and are the second section in the Scouting family in the UK. They enjoy new adventures while making new friends along the way. As well as regular weekly meetings, cub scouts also enjoy:

  • activity days
  • weekend camps
  • playing games
  • trying adventurous activities – such as climbing, sailing and archery
  • exploring the outdoors
  • meeting people from their local community
  • and having lots of fun!

Our cubs meet on a Wednesday evening during term time.  If you have a son or daughter who would like to join, please get in touch via the form on the Find & Contact Us page.  We’ll let you know a probable start date (we tend not to have a waiting list for cubs) and some more information about our pack.

If you’d like to find out more about cubs in general, a good place to start is the Scout Association website.  Here you can learn about the programme we follow, the requirements for the different cub badges and where they go on the uniform.
