Cubs are young people aged between 8 and 10½ years old who are members of the Scout Association. Within the Pack they work in one of four small groups called Sixes. Each Six has a leader, called a Sixer and he has an assistant called a Seconder.
Cub Scouting is about:
• having fun
• making friends
• enjoying lots of activities
• keeping the Promise
• trying new things
Through the many different activities, Cub Scouts will:
• learn about themselves
• get to know people and learn to work together
• explore their community
• personal development
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. 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. 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.
Above all else, Cub Scouting is about having lots and lots of fun!
