Cubs

8 to 101/2 years: Learn practical skills while having adventures with friends

Welcome to the Cubs section of scouting. It’s so much more than just a ‘one evening a week club’. We want cubs to join in ALL our events. Cubs progress to Scouts after they are 10 and before they are 11.

What do Cubs do?

Have fun! We go camping, go on days out, play games and many activities that give them the opportunity for recognition of their achievements when we award them badges. All Cubs promise:

The Cub Scout promise

I promise to do my best, to do my duty to God & the Queen, to help other people, and keep the Cub Scout law

The Cub Pack

That your child is joining is led by a Cub Scout Leader ‘Akela’ – David Colman. This is me on the left. We start a pack night with opening and closing ceremonies which include inspection which encourages pride in their uniform and personal belongings. When they formally join
they are invested and they get their necker and make the promise above.

Uniform:

Cub Sweatshirt, Polo shirt plus a ‘power pack’ book. We provide: necker, woggle & all badges.

A guide to where badges go can be found in the parent portal of OSM but here is
a picture.

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