Cubs is the second section of the Scout Group following on from Beavers. Cub Scouts are aged between 8 and 10 ½ years.
For Cubs, excitement and adventure are key and our programme offers a variety of activities to allow this. Although having fun is at the top of our list we aim to include life skills within our programmes. You will often see us working on skills such as communication, teamwork, leadership and problem solving; whilst allowing them to be creative and get involved in our local community.
We love to earn badges and there is a plethora of Activity and Staged Badges to be earned. Coming up with new and exciting ways of achieving these is a challenge we enjoy and have come up with various ways of doing this such as putting on a mini gang show, sleeping at the Nuclear Secret Bunker (sshhhhh it’s a secret), venturing onto the high ropes at Go Ape, fishing off of the beach, camping (by ourselves and with the other sections of the troop), making shelters and so much more.
As well as these, during the 2 ½ years that Cubs spend with us our goal is to enable the cubs to achieve the highest award in Cubs which is the Silver Award. To do this they need to achieve all 7 Challenge Badges which cover a range of elements both indoors and outdoors.
We attend various District Cub events during the year such as the swimming gala, weekend camps, athletics night, easter egg hunt with a couple of more formal events such as the carol service at Christmas and of course the Remembrance Day celebrations.
