For Cubs, girls and boys aged 8 to 10.5, excitement and adventure are key. Cubs are introduced to exciting outdoor skills and take part in adventurous activities, as well as camps and residential experiences.
We run two Cub Scout Packs the ‘Wolf Pack’ meets on Friday evenings and the ‘Lion Pack’ on Monday evenings each week during school terms and there are other activities such as outings and camping weekends. The Packs are organised into small groups called Sixes, each led by an older Cub Scout, called a Sixer. After a few weeks of going to meetings, a cub will be welcomed into the Pack at a simple ‘Investiture’ ceremony to recite the Cub Promise. You are welcome to attend the Investiture.
The team running a Cub Pack will comprise of two or more leaders and helpers. The varied programme highlights the care of the environment, personal safety, finding out more about the local community and cultures and customs of other people. Cub Scouts earn joining-in badges for each year of membership, challenge badges for demonstrating skills in different areas and many activity badges leading to the ‘Chief Scout Silver Award’ – the highest award for cub scouts.
Put your phone down and what are you left with? Just teamwork, courage and the skills to succeed.’
