What Is Cubs?

For Cubs, 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 Cub Pack is the second section of the Scout Group following on from Beavers. Cub Scouts are young people aged between 8 and 10 ½.

Cubs originally started in 1916 for younger brothers who wanted a “look-in”. In nearly a century, the section has constantly evolved and adapted its programme and methods to meet the changing needs of each generation of young people and these days admits girls as well as boys.

Within the pack activities are based around a programme defined by the Scout Association, developing skills and interests that lead, ultimately, to the Chief Scout’s Award. There are loads of fun things that you can do as a Cub Scout. You will get a chance to try lots of different activities like swimming, music, exploring, computing and collecting. If you do them properly you will get a badge which you can wear on your uniform.

Where Are We?

Our Cubs meet on a Wednesday evening from 6.30pm – 8.00pm at St Marys Church Hall.
