Cubs: 8-10.5 Yrs Old

The next step in the scouting journey is for boys and girls to join a Cub Pack. The range of activities broadens and Cubs continue their exploration of the world around them with outdoor activities such as canoeing, sailing and archery. Weekend camps and pack holidays are also a regular part of Cub scout life.


From Athletics, DIY and Global Conservation, to Animal Carer, Scientist and Map Reader Activity badges, there’s a wide range of activities available for Cubs to earn their Badges.

Challenge Badges offer Cubs the opportunity to tackle more ambitious tasks within their pack or community. Challenge Badges available include Outdoor, Community and Creative Challenge badges (click here to download the file showing the position of badges on uniform).

Cub Meetings

Cubs meet once a week for usually and hour and a half. Depending on the planned activity, the meeting may be at the Scout Headquarters, campsite or other pre-arranged location, such as a sports facility.

There is a subscription for attending Cub meetings, this can be paid weekly, monthly, in cash, by cheque or Direct Debit. Scouting is available to all and therefore if finances are holding back a young person joining Cubs, please contact the relevant Group Scout Leader in confidence to discuss financial assistance.
