cubsThe Cub Section (often shortened to Cubs) is a section of the UK Scout Association open to 8-10½ year olds. This section follows on from the Beaver Colony (6-8 year olds) and Cubs will move onto the Scout Troop at the age of 10½. The section originally opened as Wolf Cubs in 1916. A series of special events and camps were held in 2016 to celebrate its 100th birthday.

The Cub Pack currently has 48 members. It is run by Leaders whose names are taken from the Jungle Book, Akela, Bagheera, Baloo, Hathi and Kaa. We meet on a Monday night and have a variety of meetings, with a range of activities, events and experiences built around various Challenge Badges. Each badge represents a different development area in a young person’s life. There are seven Challenge Badges in Cub Scouting. They are Adventure, Outdoors, Personal, Skills, Team Leader, Teamwork and World.
