Our Cubs are aged between 8 and 10 ½ years old who are the second youngest section of the Scouting family.
During their time in the group, 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.
Easily recognised by their distinctive green sweatshirts, Cubs are organised in small groups called Sixes, each headed up by an older Cub called a Sixer, and often with a Seconder as well. Sixes can be used in a number of ways to facilitate the organisation of the Cub Scout Pack.
The Cub Scout Promise
There are a number of variations of the Cub Scout Promise to reflect the range of faiths, beliefs and attitudes; and nationalities in the UK within Scouting. Further information about The Promise can be found here.
The Cub Scout Law
Cub Scouts always do their best
Think of others before themselves
And do a good turn every day.
