Cub Scouts are aged between eight to ten and a half years old.
We have two Cub packs within our group. Spitfire Pack meets every Tuesday evening between 6:30pm and 8:15pm and Mosquito Pack meets every Thursday evening between 6:15pm and 8:15pm.
Cub Scouts get a chance to try a wide range of different activities as well as going on trips, days out, and on camps. The main aims of the section are to encourage self confidence, community involvement and exploring the outdoors.
During investiture, a Cub Scout will be asked to make the Cub Scout promise and law:
The Cub Scout Promise
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 Law
Cub Scouts always do their best
Think of others before themselves
And do a good turn every day.
Once a Cub Scout is invested, they will take part in a Balanced Programme which consists of seven challenge awards including, Our World Challenge, Our Skills Challenge, Our Outdoors Challenge, Our Adventure Challenge, Teamwork Challenge, Personal Challenge and Team Leader Challenge.
Cub Scouts also have the opportunity of earning 38 activity badges which includes badges in Fire Safety, Disability Awareness, Astronomy and many more! There are also 15 staged activity badges which are awarded depending on the level of skill a Cub Scout has earned.
The Chief Scout’s Silver Award is the highest award in the Cub section and is awarded once all the challenge awards and a selection of activity badges have been achieved.
