The Cub Scout Pack
The Cub Scout Pack, (for youths aged 8-10.5 yrs), is run by our Cub Scout Leader, with an assistant Leader in attendance each week.
All leaders are volunteers who give their time freely and receive special training for their role. The Leaders are responsible for planning and running a programme of activities and games at Pack meetings and special events.
The Cubs work in small groups called Sixes. The Sixes are identified by different colours and are led by youth members named a 'sixer' and a 'seconder'.
The theme for Cub Scouts is 'The Jungle Book' by Rudyard Kipling, with many leaders and adults adopting names of characters from this book for use within Scouting.
Activities and Awards
Cubs will enjoy a great deal of fun and adventure whilst in the Pack, which will lead to the award of badges to wear on their uniform. These are given in recognition of the effort made at their own level of understanding and development.
Each year some events and activities are undertaken along with other Packs from the District and County and others are held with our Beaver Colony or Scout Troop.
Cub Scouts wear a practical uniform consisting of a green sweatshirt with black or grey school trouser/skirt and black shoes. Uniform is available from the scout association, via their website: www.scoutshops.com
Alternatively, you can place your uniform order with your Group Scout Leader.
Cub Scout sweatshirts are currently priced at £11.50, (payment is required with your order).
We recommend that you obtain a larger size sweatshirt than you normally would to allow it to fit throughout your child’s career in Cubs.
Your child’s Group Scarf is supplied at their investiture ceremony, with the badges your child will need.
The Awards and Badges
The Cub Scout programme provides a balanced and exciting range of activities based on six zones. These are the Outdoor & Adventure Zone, the Fitness Zone, the Community Zone, the Creative Zone, the Beliefs & Attitude Zone and the Global Zone.
There are many badges Cubs can earn through participation in these zones.
Your child will gain much more from Scouting if you are prepared to offer your support. There are many ways you can help:
- Offer a skill or hobby to train or test the Cubs for badge or award work.
- Help with Pack or Group events.
- Support the Scout Group’s Annual General Meeting and other special events.
- Join the Scout Group Executive to support the Group through fundraising for new equipment, leader training etc.
Or how about taking an active role in one of the sections either as a regular helper or as a full time warranted leader? If this interests you then please discuss this further with the Group Scout Leader. All help is valued and no experience is necessarily needed. Full support and training is arranged.
The Cub Scout Promise and Law
Cub Scouts, as part of their investiture ceremony, are asked to make a Promise. The Promise is as follows:
I promise that I will do my best
To do my duty to God and to the Queen
To help other people
And to keep the Cub Scout Law.
The Cub Scout Law is:
Cub Scouts always do their best
Think of others before themselves
And do a good turn every day.
The Cub Scout Motto is:
