Introduction to Cubs
‘The best part of Scouting is definitely the camps. I love every activity we do apart from swimming. They told us the pool was 24 degrees centigrade. Minus 24 more like!’
Scouting is one of the great success stories of the last 100 years. From an experimental camp for 20 boys on Brownsea island in 1907, it has spread to 216 countries and territories, with an estimated 28 million members.
Cubs is the second section of the Scouting movement, originally started in 1916 for younger brothers who wanted a ‘look-in’. In nearly a century, the section has constantly evolved and adapted its programme and methods to meet the changing needs of each generation of young people, and these days admits girls as well as boys.
The Blue Pack meets on Tuesday nights from 6:45pm – 8:15pm and the Yellow Pack meets on Wednesday nights from 6:45pm – 8:15pm.

During their time in the Pack, Cubs will get a chance to try lots of different activities like swimming, music, exploring, computing and collecting.
There are a range of badges available which Cubs can wear on their uniforms to show everyone how well they’re doing.
Cub Scouts also get to go on trips and days out, to places like the zoo, theme parks or a farm. Sometimes they will be able to go camping with the rest of the Pack and take part in all kinds of outdoor activities.
Cub Scout Structure and organisation
A Pack of Cubs is organised into Sixes, with each Six named after a colour, and a Sixer and a Seconder in charge.
