Cubs are aged between 8 and 10 1/2 years old and form the second section of our scouting family.

During their time in the Pack, Cub Scouts will get a chance to try lots of different activities like swimming, music, exploring, computing and collecting. Cub Scouts also get to go on trips and days out, to places like the zoo, theme parks or a farm. Sometimes they will be able to go camping with the rest of the Pack and take part in all kinds of outdoor activities.

There are a range of badges available which Cub Scouts can wear on their uniforms to show everyone how well they’re doing. These cater for all of the Cub’s skills and hobbies and range from the Animal Care badge to the World Faiths badge. While some of these may be achieved through their normal pack meetings some could be achieved for activities outside of scouting such as playing a musical instrument or horse riding. What ever their interest we are sure that your child will find something to excite them.

But don’t just take our word for it. The following video from The Scout Association tells you in their own words what Cubs think about their time in Scouting.
