Cub Scouts belong to the second section of the scouting family and are easily recognised by their dark green uniform and is for both for boys and girls aged 8 - 10 1/2 years.
There are loads of fun things that you can do as a Cub Scout. You will get a chance to try lots of different activities like swimming, music, climbing, exploring, computing and collecting. If you do them properly you will get a badge which you can wear on your uniform.
Cub Scouts also get to go on trips and days out, to places like the going to London, National Space Centre, National History Museum. Our Cubs also get the chance to go camping. This will mean sleeping in a tent and doing loads of outdoor activities.
We have one Cub Scout Pack in our Group, this is named after our Scouting founder, Lord Baden Powell.
The Baden Powell Pack meets every Thursday 19:00 - 20:30 at Hampton Gardens School.
Cub Scouts is the section of scouting for 8 to 10 ½ year olds. Our packs are divided into six sixes; yellow, green, blue, red, black and white. Each six is led by an older Cub who is the Sixer. The Sixer acts as the team captain and the Seconder takes on the role of the Sixer in their absence. Akela is our Cub Scout Leader and takes overall responsibility for our pack. There is also a team of Assistant Leaders who will attend our pack nights, and parents will be invited to help on a rota basis.
During our pack nights, the Cubs will take part in many scouting traditions and ceremonies, including Grand Howl at the beginning and end of each pack night, and promise ceremonies. The Cub Scouts will also take part in a range of fun activities including, craft, cooking, sports and games. There is a range of challenge and activity badges which the Cub Scouts can work towards at home, as well as by taking part in our pack night activities. We will also participate in some weekend activities and camps, which will count towards Cub Scout awards and/or badges.
