The Cub Pack offers a wide range of skills and services to help them to develop, learn and to enjoy themselves. We are open to any young person in the age range 8 to 10 years of age. Cubs can be recognised by their dark green sweatshirt tops. 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, 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 zoo, theme parks or a farm. Sometimes you will be able to go camping with the rest of your Pack. This will mean you sleeping in a tent and doing loads of outdoor activities.
All sections rely upon a ‘training’ scheme in the form of badges to track progress of the cubs and to provide a feeling of achievement. However, cubs is not just about badges, the ‘games’ and activities are very important to scouting, not just because they are enjoyable, but because they are also important in the young persons development.
When Do We Meet?
Wednesday evening from 6:30 p.m. to 8:15 p.m. at the Scout HQ on Park Road, Runcorn.
Cubs borrows a great deal of its structure from the Rudyard Kipling’s Jungle Book. The Cub section is known as a Pack, with Cubs being organised into Sixes. We have the following Sixes in our Cub Pack:-
Each Six is made up of around 6 cubs of a range of ages and new cubs normally join a six in which they know at least one person. Each Six is led by a Sixer helped by a Seconder; these are cubs who have demonstrated their competence, good behaviour and been a good example to those in the Pack.
We welcome parents as occasional helpers or to pop in to see what is going on. Alternatively get in touch with the Cub Leader through our contact form here.
