Cubs are young people aged 8 to 10½ who:

  • Master new skills and try new things
  • Have fun and go on adventures
  • Make friends
  • Are curious about the world around them
  • Help others and make a difference, in their own communities and beyond

Every week, they gather in groups called Cub Packs to take part in lots of interesting and challenging activities – achieving anything they set their minds to, and having lots of fun along the way.

Cubs learn by doing and gaining “Skills for Life”. Some of the skills will be practical, like knowing how to cook a delicious meal or give someone first aid. Learning new skills will allow them to become a master at certain things, improve at others and may help them succeed in adult life. But the most important skills they’ll learn at Cubs are the ones that will make them feel confident and happy in their own skin. Whatever skills they learn, it’s all about having the courage to try new things and learn from them.

Cubs work as a team to help other people. Together, they’ll learn about global issues and what we can all do to help solve them. We will also make an impact in your own community, through activities such as campaigning to save your local library, collecting donations for a foodbank, or planting trees in a neighbouring park.

Here is some info about Uniform and where to place all the badges that your Cub will soon be earning.
