Cubs can be recognised by their dark green sweatshirt tops. 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 like swimming, music, exploring, computing and collecting. If you do them properly you will get a badge which you can wear on your uniform.

All sections rely upon a ‘training’ scheme in the form of badges to track progress of the cubs and to provide a feeling of achievement. However, cubs is not just about badges, the ‘games’ and activities are very important to scouting, not just because they are enjoyable, but because they are also important in the young persons development.

Sixes

Scouts borrows a great deal of its structure from the Lord Baden Powell’s experience in the military. The cub section is known as a Pack, with cubs being organised into Sixes. We have the following Sixes in our Cub Pack:-

Each Six is made up of around 6 cubs of a range of ages and new cubs normally join a six in which they know at least one person. Each Six is led by a Sixer helped by a Seconder; these are cubs who have demonstrated their competence, good behaviour and been a good example to those in the Pack.
