Who are Cub Scouts?
Cub Scouts are young girls and boys between the ages of eight and ten and a half years old. They meet at Pack meetings and usually work in small groups called Sixes. There will be activities such as outings, visits and camps for them to enjoy.
The Cub Scout Pack
The Cub Scout Pack is composed of a group of Cub Scouts, which meet weekly. The Cub Pack will also include a team of dedicated adults. The team is likely to include Cub Scout Leaders, Assistant Cub Scout Leaders and Sectional Assistant who attend regularly. There may also be Young Leaders, who are members of the Explorer Scout Section to help with activities.
Leaders are usually named after characters from Rudyard Kiplings 'Jungle Book'
Cub Scout Balanced Programme
The Cub Scout Balanced Programme supports and promotes a variety of activities which cover different aspects called 'Programme Zones'.
Progress is rewarded in the Cub Pack with a series of badges which Cub Scouts will love to gain and wear on their uniforms.
Using the 'Programme Zones' the Cub leaders will ensure that these badges are achievable.
Camps and Pack Holidays
Leaders have to meet special training obligations before they are able to take Cub Scouts away on what is probably the highlight and most memorable part of the Pack’s year where they have the opportunity of going away together for a weekend or longer.
