Cubs is the second section of the Scouting movement (ages 8 – 10.5 years) and we meet every Wednesday during term-time from 6pm till 7:30pm.
Originally started in 1916 for younger brothers who wanted a ‘look-in’, nearly a century later the section has evolved and adapted its programme and methods to meet the changing needs of each generation of young people, and these days is open to girls as well as boys.
A Cub Scout Pack can have up to 36 Cub Scouts and is split into smaller groups called Sixes. Cubs take part in a wide range of activities designed to be interesting and challenging. A Cub Scout meeting consists of games and activities with plenty of time spent outdoors.
Camps and holidays are some of the most memorable events of the year for Cubs.
