Cubs is the second section in the scouting family, after beavers and before scouts. A cub is typically 8-10 1/2 yrs old.
What do Cubs do? Cubs do a wide range of activities. Activities range from arts and crafts to climbing and abseiling to kayaking and sailing – we like to give the cubs an experience of the adventure that scouting has to offer!
Our programme is carefully planned according to the “Balanced Programme” philosophy that scouting promotes in order to provide a wide range of activities and experiences. Each year cubs have the opportunity to go camping on at least one camp, providing some with their first experiences of nights under canvas.
Sixes System – The Cubs are put into small groups called Sixes when they join. Each Six has a different coloured woggle to distinguish between the sixes. Each six has a sixer and a seconder, who are acting as the leaders of the six.
Who are the Leaders? Our leadership team is entirely made up of volunteers who enjoy running cub meetings and camps! All adult leaders have training and a DBS check, and there is always at least one adult who is first aid qualified.
If you would like the opportunity to do something you’d never thought of doing, while having lots of fun and giving back to the community at the same time, please get in touch – we can always do with more leaders! You don’t have to be an expert in all-things-scouting – the only essential ingredient is wanting to have fun scouting!
