Cub Scouts

Cub Scouts

Cub Scouts are girls and boys aged from 8 to 10 and a half years old. The Packs are organised into small groups called Sixes. An older Cub Scout, called a Sixer, leads each Six.

Our Pack usually meet during school terms and there are other activities covering the environment, personal safety, finding out more about the local community and cultures and customs of other people.

Cubs go camping, have days out and compete in district cub events. 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 32 activity badges. 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.

Cubs meet at Shrewsbury House on Thursday evenings from 18.00 – 19.30

Put your phone down and what are you left with? Just teamwork, courage and the skills to succeed.’
