The Cub Pack is the second section of the Scout Group following on from Beavers and they are young people aged between 8 and 10 ½ who meet on a Monday Evening. For Cubs, excitement and adventure are key. Their programme offers a huge variety of activities whilst allowing them to be creative and get involved in their local community. Cubs are introduced to exciting outdoor skills and take part in adventurous activities, as well as camps and residential experiences. Click Here to see where badges go on the uniform!
A Cub Pack is usually organised into small groups called Sixes, each headed up by an older Cub called a Sixer, and 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 before, during or after the Six meeting.
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 rather than meeting set standards is the key approach, and there are a range of challenge awards and badges available that Cub Scouts can gain during their time in the section to recognise their achievements.
