Cubs

cubs

Cubs is the second section of the Scouting movement (for ages 8 – 10), originally started in 1916 for younger brothers who wanted a ‘look-in’. In nearly a century, the section has constantly evolved and adapted its programme and methods to meet the changing needs of each generation of young people, and these days admits girls as well as boys.

Our Cub Pack is run by Sharon our Cub Scout Leader. She is assisted by Don, Oliver and a number of young leaders.

The Cubs are very enthusiastic about gaining their badges and it’s not unknown to have around ten Chief Scout’s Silver Awards given out in one go! The Cubs enjoy their camping and outdoor activities and regularly raise money for a chosen charity.

If you would like your son or daughter to join us, please get in touch with us via the contact page.

Our Cubs meet on a Friday evening from 7 – 8.15pm.
