Cub Scouts are aged between 8-10½ years THEY HAVE FUN!……. they also play games, gain badges, go on outings and visits, go camping and learn about the outdoors, look after themselves, look after their surroundings, help others, create things – become Scouts. Cub Scouts wear a uniform. Scouting is a uniformed organisation and the uniform tells everyone that they are a Cub Scout and which Pack they belong to. The current uniform is of a dark green long sleeved sweatshirt, the group’s own Necker which provides recognition of which Group they belong to. A coloured woggle is worn round the Necker – the colour denotes which Six they are in. Cubs can gain a wide range of badges and awards – there are group awards that allow all members of the Group to work together on Challenge awards that are gained. But that’s not all! There are activity badges that Cub Scouts can gain in many interests and activities from Astronomy to writing, Computing Science and Music to Gardening. In fact any favourite hobby. The highest award a Cub can ever earn is the Chief Scout’s Silver Award. Every now and again there are special events that allow a special badge to be worn for a short time. When the time is over many keep a collection of these badges on a ‘Campfire Blanket’ which is good to wear around the camp fire. We currently have two Cub Packs which run from 6.30pm to 8.15pm on Tuesdays and Thursdays.
