Cub Scouting is for young people aged between 8 and 10 ½ years old who like adventure. Cub Scouts make up the second section of the scouting family, between Beavers and Scouts.
Our meeting times are:
Cubs – Wednesday Evenings 18:30 to 20:00.
During their time in the Pack, Cub Scouts will get a chance to try lots of different activities; Camping, Hiking, Wide Games, Map Reading, Knotting, exploring and much, much more..
Cub Scouts will also go on trips and days out to places like the zoo, theme parks or a farm. They will be able to go camping with the Pack and take part in all kinds of exciting outdoor activities.

The Pack And the Sixes
A Pack of Cub Scouts is organised into Sixes, with each Six named after a colour. A Sixer is in charge of each Six assisted by a very able deputy the Second.
The Promise And The Law
The Cub Scout Promise:
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:
Cub Scouts always do their best
Think of others before themselves
And do a good turn every day.
There is a large range of badges and awards that the Cub Scouts can earn.
Many of the badges available are activity badges, these allow Cub Scouts to show their progress in these exciting pursuits, but there is scope to try all kinds of new things and find new interests and skills.
Gaining a challenge badge involves completing a number of more ambitious tasks within the Pack or community. There are several challenge badges across a number of themes, from the physical and outdoors to challenges dealing with the local community or issues connected with the Scouting world.
