Cubs

Cub Packs cater for 8 to 10½ year olds for whom excitement and adventure are key. Their programme offers a huge variety of activities surrounding areas of fitness, global and beliefs; whilst allowing them to be creative and get involved in their local communities. Cubs are introduced to exciting outdoor skills and take part in adventurous activities, as well as camps and residential experiences. The children’s individuality, skills, friendship and teamwork are established with activities undertaken in teams called Sixes led by older Cubs called Sixers.

Young people can join from age 8, and generally move to Scouts between 10½ and 11.

We have 3 Cub Packs:

Saxons: Mondays (6:45-8:15pm)

Celts: Tuesdays (6:00-7:30pm)

Normans: Wednesdays (6:30-8:00pm)

Activities

During their time in the Pack, 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 and personal development, rather than meeting set standards, is the key approach, and there are a range of badges and challenge awards that Cub Scouts can gain to recognise their achievements.

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.

I promise that I will do my best to do my duty to God
and to the Queen,
to help other people
and to keep the Cub Scout Law.

The Cub Scout Motto

Be prepared

The Cub Scout Law

Cub Scouts always do their best
Think of others before themselves
And do a good turn every day.
