The Cub pack is the second section of the Scout Group following on from Beavers. Cub scouts are young people aged between 8 and 10½. There is flexibility in the age range: young people can join from 7½, and can move on to Scout any time between the ages of 10 and 11.
Cub Scouts take part in a programme packed with fun, surprises and most importantly adventure!
There are lots of exciting things that Cub Scouts aged eight to ten and a half do. Cubs are introduced to exciting outdoor skills and take part in adventurous activities, as well as going on camps and residential experiences. They will get the chance to try loads of different activities like exploring, swimming, hiking and cooking on camp fires.
Cubs can earn Badges that can be worn on their uniforms by doing these activities.

Completing Challenge Awards lets you do more, learn more and be more.
Challenge awards are all about stepping outside your comfort zone. Try out something you wouldn't normally be interested in. Take the lead on something that scares you. Along the way, you'll unlock hidden talents and stand tall.
Chief Scout's Silver Award
This is the highest award a Cub can earn.
To complete it, you need to earn six Activity or Staged Activity Badges of your choice, as well as all seven of the Challenge Awards.
Within their Pack, Cubs are part of a Six. A Six is a smaller group of Cubs, headed up by a Sixer and Seconder. Sixers and Seconders are older Cub Scouts who are chosen to take on leadership responsililities, such as welcoming new people to the Pack or taking charge of a particular game or activity.
