The Cub section is for 8 to 10 and a half year olds.
Cub Scouts enjoy new adventures while making new friends along the way. Their commitment is recognised by over thirty activity badges. As well as regular weekly meetings, Cub Scouts also enjoy activity days, weekend camps and pack holidays. Cub Scouts:
- Go camping
- Play games
- Explore the outdoors
- Try adventurous activities – such as kayaking, sailing and archery
- Meet people from their local community
- Experience the culture of other countries
- Keep themselves and others safe
Like all of the sections within Scouting the Cubs have some exciting badges to achieve….
These are activity badges and there are 40 of them to gain. Cubs can work towards an astronomy badge, martial arts, cyclist, DIY and even an entertainer activity badge.
These are the staged badges, these can be started in the Beaver section and worked on right through Cubs to the Explorer section. They increase in difficulty as your young person works through the sections
These are the challenge badges, of which there are seven to be gained.
Once all seven have been awarded then a Cubscout can get the highest award, the Chief Scouts Silver Award. All Cubswho gain this badge will be invited to a special awards ceremony followed by a fun activity session at Blackwell Court Scout centre.
The Cub section is open to 8-10 year olds. You can register your interest for a space by using the enquiry form. Fill this in and the leader team will be in touch to confirm all of the details.
