For boys and girls aged eight to 10½

A Cub Scout Pack can have up to 36 Cub Scouts and is split into smaller groups called Sixes. Cubs take part in a wide range of activities designed to be interesting and challenging. A Cub Scout meeting consists of games and activities with plenty of time spent outdoors.

Cubs start to learn more advanced skills and work closely together in their Sixes. At the weekly meetings, they work on projects, do badge-work and play games. They camp 3 or 4 weekends a year, where in addition to fun and games they learn practical skills like fire-lighting, cooking and how to organise a campsite. Camps and holidays are some of the most memorable events of the year for Cubs.


The Cub Scout Promise

I promise that I will do my best
to do my duty to God and to The Queen, to help other people
and to keep the Cub Scout Law.


The Cub Scout Law

Cub Scouts always do their best, think of others before themselves and do a good turn every day.
Note: Scouting is open to people of all faiths and of none, and must therefore take account of the different religious obligations of its Members while upholding the essential spirit of the Promise. Where some other form of wording is required for a member of a particular faith or religion, advice will be sought from the Group Scout Leader.

Similarly, it is accepted that foreign residents who may become Members of the Association owe allegiance to their own country. To meet these circumstances the phrase ‘duty to The Queen’ should be replaced by the phrase ‘duty to the country in which I am now living’.
