Cub Scouts are young people aged between 8 and 10 1/2, who make up the second section of the Scouting family, between Beavers and Scouts.
JoiningUnder some circumstances, Cub Scouts can join the Pack as young as 7 1/2 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.
ActivitiesDuring their time in the Pack, Cub Scouts will get a chance to try lots of different activities like swimming, music, exploring, computing and collecting.
There are a range of badges available which Cub Scouts can wear on their uniforms to show everyone how well they're doing.
Cub Scouts also get to go on trips and days out, to places like the zoo, theme parks or a farm. Sometimes they will be able to go camping with the rest of the Pack and take part in all kinds of outdoor activities.
Structure and organisationA Pack of Cub Scouts is organised into Sixes, with each Six named after a colour, and a Sixer and a Seconder in charge.
The Cub Scout PromiseI 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 LawCub Scouts always do their best
Think of others before themselves
And do a good turn every day.
