‘The best part of Cubs is definitely the camps. I love every activity we do apart from swimming. They told us the pool was 24ºC . Minus 24 more like!’


To be a Cub Scout, you must be aged between 8 and 10½ years of age. You will join a group of boys & girls who meet in a Scout Groups Headquarters where you will work & play in teams called “Sixes”. When you meet together, it is called a pack meeting. All Cubs wear a uniform and the evenings are organised by leaders and parent helpers.

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 such as outdoor and fitness challenges, swimming, music, exploring, computing and creative collecting. If you do them really well (the best that you can do), you can earn badges which you can wear on your uniform.

Cub Scouts also get to go on trips and days out, to places like the zoo, theme parks or a farm. Sometimes you will be able to go camping with the rest of your Pack. This will mean you sleeping in a tent and doing loads of outdoor activities.

We have a Parent’s Guide to Cubs which gives  a brief introduction to the section, outlines the types of activities young people take part in and the skills young people will gain. This guide can be downloaded click here or obtained from our District Scout Shop.
