8-10½ Years

A cub scout pack consists of smaller groups called sixes. Cubs take part in a wide range of activities designed to be interesting and challenge them. A cub scout meeting consists of games and activities with plenty of time outdoors. Camps and holidays are some of the most memorable events of the year for cubs. After a few weeks of going to meetings, a cub will be welcomed into the Pack at a simple Investiture ceremony to recite the Cub Promise and Law.

Meeting times are Thursday`s during term time between 6:30 and 8:00pm

Activities/Programme

Our Packs usually meet all year round excluding summer and Christmas holidays and there are other activities such as outings and camping weekends. The varied programme highlights the care of the environment, personal safety, finding out more about the local community and cultures and customs of other people. Cub Scouts work towards awards and badges. These include joining-in badges for each year of membership of cubs, challenge badges for demonstrating skills in five different areas and up to 37 activity badges. The packs also have regular activity sleepovers throughout the year. These are usually centred around a particular theme and allow the Cubs to complete one or more badges over a weekend. These weekends count towards many of the Staged Activity badges offered in Scouting.
