Cub Scouts is for young people aged 8 to 10 years, and focuses on exploring the outdoors, discovery and learning interesting things! Cub Scouts belong to a Unit and begin to learn leadership and teamwork in small teams called Patrols.
You’ll get to go on camps, bushwalks and bike trips with your Unit, as well as learn things like how to use a compass. Your Cub Scout Leader will help you along the way and encourage you to take part. You’ll learn life-long skills, make friends, and have fun! Cub Scouts are keen to learn, belong, and have fun, so our activities are designed to stimulate their emotional and adventurous spirits.
Cub Scouts begin to decide their own adventures and take more responsibility in their Scouting process. They explore further into nature and their communities, building an understanding of their responsibilities to both. Their activities include sports meetings, visits to interesting destinations such as factories and fire department headquarters, plus trips to the zoo and museums. They learn bushcraft and how to fly model aeroplanes – some even fly in real planes.
