Cubs – 8-10½ yrs

Cub_CMYK_green_linear Cub Scouting began in 1916, originally known as Wolf Cubs, and has gone from strength to strength ever since. Cub Scouts is open to young people between eight and ten and a half years old.

Wearing a green sweatshirt, Cub Scouts meet together as a Pack and work within a variety of small groups called “Sixes”. The Cub Scout Pack is run by Akela and other adult helpers who take their names from the Rudyard Kipling’s story The Jungle Book.

Cubs take part in a wide range of activities that are designed to be interesting and to challenge them. At the same time they have fun, adventure and make friends along the way. They do this through taking part in a programme of activities such as camping, playing games, trying new things and exploring the outdoors.

Cubs gives young people a taster of the exciting activities they will do more of in Scouts. They will go camping, try adventurous activities outdoors, make new friends and enjoy themselves whatever they are doing!
