The Cub Pack is the second section of the Scout Group following on from Beavers. Cubs are boys and girls aged between 8 and 10 ½. They enjoy a 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.
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. The Sixers and Seconders help the Leaders, lead their Six and ensure everyone gets involved.
Thursday 18:00 – 19:30
Cub Scout Leader – Carolyn Butcher
Assistant Cub Scout Leaders – Kevin Wade, Oenone McKellar, Toby Clay, Alex Underwood, Deanna O’Brien
Cubs wear navy activity trousers, green polo shirt, green sweatshirt with a Group scarf (often called a Necker) and a coloured woggle which identifies their Six. The Group scarf and woggle are given to the Cub at their investiture.
There are more than 43 badges that the Cubs can work towards during their time in the Pack. These are split into four groups, Core Badges, Activity Badges, Challenge Badges and Staged Badges
Each of these badge areas helps Leaders to deliver a quality and diverse programme covering a range of themes from the physical and outdoorsy to challenges dealing with the local community or issues connected with the Scouting world.
The highest award in Cubs is the Chief Scout Silver Award which is awarded when a Cubs completes all 7 Challenge Badges and 6 Activity or Staged Badges.
