Cubs is the second section of the Scouting movement. It was originally started in 1916 for younger brothers who wanted a ‘look-in’. Over the last 100 years, the section has constantly evolved, adapting its programme and methods to meet the changing needs of each generation (including both boys and girls since 1991).

Cub Scouts enjoy adventures while making new friends along the way. Their commitment is recognised by over thirty activity badges. As well as meeting weekly, Cub Scouts also enjoy activity days, weekend camps and pack holidays. Activities include:

  • Camping
  • Playing games
  • Exploring the great outdoors
  • Trying adventurous activities (e.g. climbing, sailing and archery)
  • Meeting people from their local community
  • Experiencing different cultures
  • Learning to keep themselves and others safe

“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!”
