Life as a Cub Scout

Cub Scouts is the second section into Scouts. It’s for boys and girls aged 8 to 10 and it’s all about adventure! These ages may vary up to 6 months. If you enjoy fun, games and learning new skills then you’ll love being a Cub Scout! Life as a Cub Scout is full of adventure and teamwork. As a member of a ‘Six’ you and your Pack will work together to explore the world. Your Cub Scout Leader will help you along the way and encourage you to participate in Scouting activities. You’ll learn life-long skills and participate in the Cub Scouts Award Scheme and earn badges, make friends and have fun! Cub Scouts are keen to learn, belong, and have fun, so our activities are designed to stimulate their emotional and adventurous spirits.

Cub Scout Meetings

Cub Scout Packs usually meet once a week at their local Scout or community hall. The trained Cub Scout Leader and their assistants are in charge of ensuring that the Cub Scouts work well together and challenge themselves to do their best, while also meeting the development program goals for the week. The Leaders encourage their Cubs to use their imaginations and foster their creative and mental abilities. Cub Scout meetings are full of energy and fun and our Cubs go home with the confidence and the abilities to face whatever challenges or goals they set for themselves. “Cub Scouts are keen to learn, belong, and have fun, so our activities are designed to stimulate their emotional and adventurous spirits.”
