Structure

Cub Scouts are young people aged between 8 and 10 1/2, who make up the second section of the Scouting family, between Beavers and Scouts.
Under some circumstances, Cub Scouts can join the Pack as young as 7 1/2 if, for example, they have friends joining at the same time, or are mature enough to move on early from Beavers, (and there is space in the Pack). Such decisions are taken by Cub and Beaver Scout leaders.

A Pack of Cub Scouts is organised into Sixes, with each Six named after a colour, and a Sixer and a Seconder in charge.
During their time in the Pack, Cub Scouts will get a chance to try lots of different activities like swimming, music, exploring, computing and collecting.

There are a range of badges available which Cub Scouts can wear on their uniforms to show everyone how well they’re doing.
Cub Scouts also get to go on trips and days out, to places like the zoo, theme parks or a farm. Sometimes they will be able to go camping with the rest of the Pack and take part in all kinds of outdoor activities.

Cub badges​​

There are many different types of badge to earn in each Scouting section. Additionally there are ‘staged’ badges which are not age-specific and can be achieved and built upon throughout your time at scouts.

Please let us know which ones excite you the most and we’ll do our best to help you achieve them!

Uniform



Cubs wear a dark green sweatshirt with a Group scarf (often called a necker) and a woggle in the colour of their Six.
