About Cubs

Cub Scouts are boys and girls aged between eight and ten and a half (though we can take Cubs as young as seven and a half, and they can remain in Cubs until the age of eleven in special circumstances). Cub Scouts all over the country meet together in Packs, just like ours, and take part in all sorts of different activities. They all make the same promise and they all take part in the same ceremonies. Cub Scouting started in 1916 and has been growing ever since - have a look at the history page for more information.

very Pack has a Cub Scout Leader (usually called "Akela") plus some assistant leaders and other helpers - our leaders page tells you more about the adults in our Pack.

To be a Cub Scout you’ll need to enjoy:
  • Having lots of fun
  • Trying out loads of new things
  • Playing all sorts of exciting games
  • Making tons of new friends
  • Exploring
You can have a look in our past events section to get an idea of the sorts of things we do, and have a look at our calendar to see what we are going to be up to over the next few months. 

If you become a Cub Scout you will:
  • Play games
  • Make things
  • Take part in songs, story telling and drama
  • Go on visits and meet visitors
  • Spend time outdoors
  • Take part in activities with others
  • Help other people
  • Find out about themes
  • Take part in prayer, worship and reflection
  • Take part in team challenges
  • Try new things
As well as our weekly meeting, we take part in all sorts of activities at weekends and in the holidays. There are district and county competitions where you get the chance to try out some of the skills you might have learnt as a Cub or at home or school. We also go on Pack trips and outings – we might have a visit to the ice rink or go for an Adventure walk around the town or into the countryside. And, of course, we do plenty of camping – sometimes on our own and sometimes with other Cub Scouts.
