8 to 10½ years

Life as a Cub Scout is fun, adventurous and rewarding.

Cub Scouts is the second section of the Scouting Movement for 8 to 10 ½ year olds. A Cub Scout Pack can have up to 36 Cub Scouts and is split into smaller groups called Sixes.They meet weekly to take part in a wide range of activities designed to be interesting and challenging with plenty of time being spent outdoors. After a few weeks, your child will be ‘invested’. This is when they promise to do their best and help others.

As a Cub Scout your child will join their Cub Pack on exciting adventures, discovering hidden talents and exploring the world around them. In this section, excitement and adventure are key. The Cub Scout Programme offers Cub Scouts a huge variety of activities, indoors and outdoors, allowing them to be creative and get involved in their local communities.

Earn badges, get active and embrace the challenge.

We believe that young people learn by doing, so our Cub Scout Programme is packed full of amazing activities to engage and challenge Cub Scouts of all abilities.

You can expect your child to get involved in:

  • camps
  • water activities
  • nature walks
  • cooking
  • crafts
  • sports
  • and many more…

Skills for life

As a Cub Scout, your child will learn a variety of character-building skills including:

  • leadership
  • teamwork
  • problem solving
  • communication
  • and responsibility.

Peace of mind

To ensure your child is safe, Leaders adhere to our anti-bullying, equal opportunities, safety and child protection policies.
