Cub Scouts

Cub Scouts is for boys and girls aged 8 to 10 years and focuses on exploring the outdoors, discovering and learning interesting things! Cub Scouts belong to a Pack and begin to learn leadership and teamwork in small teams called Patrols.

If you enjoy fun, games and learning new skills, then you'll love being a Cub Scout! You'll get to go on camps with your Pack, and you might attend a Cuboree camp with hundreds of other Cub Scouts! As well as learning things like how to use a compass, you'll go on bush walks, bike trips and have the chance to do things like sailing, canoeing, abseiling and sometimes even flying!

Your Cub Scout Leader will help you along the way and encourage you to take part. You'll learn life-long skills, make friends and have fun! Cub Scouts are keen to learn, belong, and have fun, so our activities are designed to stimulate their emotional and adventurous spirits.
