Cub Scouts are boys and girls who are aged between 8 and 10½ years. They make up the second section of the Scouting family, between Beavers and Scouts. A young person may join Cub Scouts at 7½ years and remain in the Pack until their 11th birthday, depending on individual circumstances. They meet together for an hour and a half, once a week, in our Cub Scout Pack.
There are loads of fun things to do as a Cub Scout. Cubs get a chance to try lots of different activities like swimming, music, exploring, computing and collecting. There is a wide range of badges available which they can wear on their uniforms to show everyone how well they're doing. These cater for many interests, from Artist to Sports Enthusiast and from Chef to Scientist! The Cub Scouts also work together to gain Challenge Awards - Our Adventure, Our Outdoors, Our Skills, Our World, Personal, Team Leader and Teamwork challenges. Cubs who gain the seven main Challenge Awards qualify for the Chief Scout's Silver Award - the highest award in the Cub Scout Section.
Cub Scouts also get to go on trips and days out and sometimes you will be able to go on a Pack Holiday with the rest of the Cubs. This will mean staying at a Scout Centre for a couple of nights and doing loads of outdoor activities.
