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 years. There is flexibility in the age range, young people can join from age 7½ and can move on to Scouts between age of 10 and 11. It may sometimes be appropriate to extend this flexibility for young people with additional needs. The cub section meet on a Monday evening during normal school term time, at 18:30hrs till 20:00hrs.

STRUCTURE

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.

The Cub Scout Law

Cub Scouts always do their best Think of others before themselves And do a good turn every day.

The Cub Scout Motto

‘Be prepared’

Activities

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.

Uniform

Cubs may wear a dark green sweatshirt with a black and yellow group scarf (often called a necker) and a woggle in the colour of their Six.
