For Cubs, excitement and adventure are key. Their programme offers a huge variety of activities surrounding areas of fitness, global and beliefs; whilst allowing them to be creative and get involved in their local communities. Cubs are introduced to exciting outdoor skills and take part in adventurous activities, as well as camps and residential experiences.

The Cub Pack is the second section of the Scout Group following on from Beavers. Cub Scouts are young people typically aged between 8 and 10 ½.  

There is core flexibility in the age range:  young people can join from age 7½ and can move to Scouts between age 10 and 11. We plan the moves between sections as a group and use  this flexibility in the ages to allow for this.  

A Cub Pack is usually organised into small groups called Sixes, each headed up by an older Cub called a Sixer.

The Cub Scout Promise

There are a number of variations of the Cub Scout Promise to reflect the range of faiths, beliefs and attitudes, and nationalities, in the UK within Scouting. If you want to read them all please take a look at  The promise we usually use is:

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.

The Cub Scout Motto:

Be Prepared!!


Cubs Scouts wear a dark green sweatshirt with our Group Necker and a woggle.
