Cubs (8-10½) take part in a wide range of activities designed to be interesting and challenging. A Cub Scout meeting consists of games and activities with plenty of time spent outdoors. Camps and holidays are some of the most memorable events of the year for Cubs.


A Pack of Cub Scouts is organised into Sixes, with each Six named after a colour, and a Sixer and a Seconder in charge.


Under some circumstances, Cub Scouts can join the Pack as young as 7½ 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. If you wish to find out more about joining Cubs please use our contact form.

What do Cubs wear and where can I buy it?

All members of Scouts (adults and young people) wear a coloured scarf or necker, this is provided by us to the young people when they have been invested. Uniform can be bought from Scout Shops.

How should badges be placed on the Cub uniform?
