Our Cub Scout Pack is relatively small at the present time, but we are keen to grow it! Cub Scout packs can have up to 36 cubs, all of whom take part in a wide range of activities designed to be interesting and challenging. One of our weekly meetings consists of games and activities, with plenty of time spent outdoors. These are all designed to build resilience, creativity and team-working skills.
Many of the activity badges build on skills and knowledge that they have started at Beavers, but as slightly older children (or if they did not go to Beavers) they have the opportunity to develop their interests. Cubs have a varied programme of activities, working towards activity badges including:
- Entertainers – where they might learn magic tricks and performance skills;
- Digital Maker – where they can get started with computer programming;
- Global Issues – where they can choose issues to support that matter to them and their community.
In a similar way to Beavers, Cubs also work towards Challenge Awards over a number of weeks – usually having the opportunity to earn one per term. Challenge awards include Skills, Personal Challenge, Adventure and Teamwork.
Camps and holidays are some of the most memorable events of the year for Cubs. Our plans for 2019 include camping at the Scout Camp at Dunham Massey, alongside other opportunities such as one-day walks in the Peak District and Lake District.
As an organisation working with young children, we take safeguarding extremely seriously. All of our leaders have been subject to the Scouts’ safeguarding procedures and are all subject to Disclosure Barring Service (DBS) checks.
