Cub Scouting is a fun and adventurous programme for young people nine years to twelve of age. Cub Scouts are encouraged to work, play and grow together through a programme of games, crafts, nature study and activities in the outdoors designed to match the vivid imagination of young people of this age. The idea of Scouting is to teach children some “life skills”, to become positive contributors to the local and wider community in future life.

As a Cub Scout a young person becomes a member of a `six’ (a group of up to 6 Cub Scouts) within a Cub Pack (4 or 5 sixes). Cub Scouting is about fun, adventure, and challenge but it is also about learning by doing. This is achieved in a number of ways:

  1. Working in small groups (sixes)
  2. Working on projects
  3. Fun and adventurous outdoor activities designed to reinforce skills gained as part of the programme.
