What is Cub Scouting?

Cubs logo Cubs

To be a Cub Scout, you must be aged between 8 and 10 and a half 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.

How do I join Cub Scouts?


If you are not already involved in Cubs and would like to take part in the fun of Scouting either as a Cub Scout, or as an adult Leader or helper, please feel free to contact the Assistant County Commissioner (ACC) for the Cubs section, who will be pleased to give you details of Pack near you.

If she doesn't know all the answers she will know someone who does!

The ACC (Cubs) can be contacted by using the Contact form on the website
