Cubs (8-10½)

                              We meet on a Monday evening during term time from 6.30 pm  to 8.00 pm .

                    The Cub Pack is the second section of the Scout Group following on from Beavers.

     There is core flexibility in the age range: young people can join from age 7½ and can move to Scouts between age 10 and 11                It may sometimes be appropriate to extend this flexibility for young people with additional needs.

A Cub Scout Pack can have up to 36 Cub Scouts and is split into smaller groups called Sixes. Cubs take part in a wide range of activities designed to be interesting and challenging. A Cub Scout meeting consists of games and activities with plenty of time spent outdoors.

Camps and holidays are some of the most memorable events of the year for Cubs.

 Our Pack Name is "Sword" 

       Structure

A Cub Pack is usually organised into 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. They may provide a ‘home’ area for Cub Scouts to gather at points at the start, during or at the end of the Pack meeting.

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.

      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. 

. But most  important of of all making new friends and having fun.

Cubs also earn badges  and information can be found at....Badges
