3rd Newbury – Cubs (8-10 year olds)

Cub Scouts are girls and boys who join the Section aged eight and move on to the Scout Troop between the ages of ten and eleven.  They meet together in a Cub Scout Pack, which usually has between 6 and 36 members and are grouped in to teams called a ‘six’ which is lead by a sixer and a seconder.

There are loads of fun things you can do as a Cub Scout – having an adventure and making new friends along the way:

  • Camping
  • Playing games
  • Exploring the outdoors
  • Adventurous activities – such as climbing, sailing and archery
  • Meeting people from their local community
  • Experiencing the culture of other countries
  • Keeping themselves and others safe

Participation is rewarded with activity badges which can be worn on the uniform.

Badges can also form the basis for special events geared at the whole group working together – such as camps and pack holidays to campsites or specialist activity centres.

These are the most memorable events of the year as they give young people a chance to try out activities that are not possible at the regular weekly activities and usually take place over the course of a weekend.
