Everything You Need To Know About Cubs...
"The best part of Scouting is definitely the camps. I love every activity we do apart from swimming. They told us the pool was 24 degrees centigrade. Minus 24 more like!"
What are Cubs?
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. Like Beavers, there is some flexibility in the age range: young people can join from age 7½ and can move to Scouts between age 10 and 11. It may sometimes be appropriate to extend this flexibility for young people with additional needs.
Activities and Achievements
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. For Cubs, excitement and adventure are key. Their programme offers a huge variety of activities surrounding the areas of:
Scouts are encouraged to take part in a wide range of activities as part of their programme including:
- Global and beliefs
- Local community
- Outdoor skills
- Adventurous activities
- Camps and residential experiences
- Learning new skills that can be applied in everyday life!
The Scout Promise, Law and Motto
There are a number of variations of the Cub Scout Promise to reflect the range of faiths, beliefs and attitudes, and nationalities, in the UK within Scouting. It is a way to introduce the Scouting values in all Sections.
The Scout Law:
Cub Scouts always do their best. Think of others before themselves. And do a good turn every day.
The Scout Motto: Be Prepared
Uniform: The Cubs wear a green jumper and at 1st Northfleet we have a Red & Green kneckerchief to identify us as a group. When we invest a young person into the Scout Section we expect them to have purchased a uniform shirt, but we will supply the kneckerchief and badges!
