Welcome to the Pack Site – we are currently updating the site so any suggestions are welcome!
The Cub Pack meets on Wednesday evenings from 18:30-20:00.
Boys & girls join Cubs when they are 8 years old and move up to Scouts when they are 10½.
There are a number of awards and proficiency badges for the Cubs to achieve and they have a handbook which lists these. The Cubs usually take part in at least one camp a year and a number of Section, Group and District activities.
For Cubs, excitement and adventure are key. Their programme offers a huge variety of activities surrounding areas of fitness, global and beliefs; whilst allowing them to be creative and get involved in their local communities. Cubs are introduced to exciting outdoor skills and take part in adventurous activities, as well as camps and residential experiences.
The Cub Pack is the second section of the Scout Group following on from Beavers. Cub Scouts are young people aged between 8 and 10 ½.
There is core flexibility in the age range: young people can join from age 7½ and can move to Scouts between age 10 and 11.
A Cub Pack is usually organised into small groups called Sixes, each headed up by an older Cub called a Sixer, and often 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 at the start, during or at the end of the Pack 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 and personal development, rather than meeting set standards, is the key approach, and there are a range of badges and challenge awards that Cub Scouts can gain to recognise their achievements.
