The Cub Pack

A Cub Scout Pack has members aged 8-10 ½ years old. Cub Scouts meet together as a Pack and work within a variety of small groups called ‘Sixes’.

A team of adults runs the Cub Scout Pack, led by Akela, some will be uniformed leaders others may be Duke of Edinburgh helpers or parents.

Cubs take part in a wide range of activities that are designed to be interesting and to challenge them. At the same time they have fun, adventure and make friends along the way. They do this through taking part in a programme of activities provided by the leadership team such as: camping, playing games, trying new things and exploring the outdoors.

Cub Scouts work towards awards and badges. Activity badges are specialist interest badges that can further develop a Cub Scout’s interest. They can also form the basis for special events and some are geared at the whole pack working together. With hard work and regular attendance Cub Scouts can gain their Silver Chief Scout’s Award. Camps and sleepovers are often the most memorable events during the year. They are the chance to carry out activities that are not possible at the regular weekly meeting. Akela, the Cub Scout Leader, has overall responsibility for the Cub Pack and the Leadership Team, however it is very much a team effort with everyone having something to offer.

Meetings

Our Cub Scout Pack meets on Monday evenings 18:00 to 19:30 (location varies, depending on the season and activity)

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