Our Cub pack meets on a Friday night between 18:15 pm and 19:30 pm at St Fillans Church, Buckstone Drive. The emphasis with cubs is very much fun and friends. Cubs is open to boys and girls aged 8 - 10.5 years old. Priority is given to members moving up from our beaver coloney, but there are often spaces available to kids new to scouting.
What We Offer
Cub Scouts get the chance to try lots of different activities such as games, badge work, sports and practical skills like cooking.
Cubs follow a Balanced Programme of activities which gives them a chance to try new things, work with other people, explore the world around them and develop personal skills. Cubs also get the change to go on all sorts of outings including day trips and longer trips such as summer camps.
Badges and Awards
The Cubs work towards various activity and challenge badges, which contribute to their Cheif Scout Silver Award.
There are badges for a huge range of activities including snow sports, archery, athletics, creativity, cooking and even computer coding!
The cub uniform can be bought from the scout associations website, or from the Guide shop on Coates Creasent (as shown on the map). Once your child has been to four Cub Pack meetings and has learned about what is to be expected at Cubs, they will be invested, during which they will be presented with the green neaker and the core badges. The badges should be placed as per the diagrammed above.
You will also have the option of ordering one of our hoodies, which are useful when we venture out of the church hall.
