Cub Scouts
(age 8-11)

The Scouting adventure continues with Cub Scouts, focussed on:

  • Creating an individual path and setting up for new challenges
  • Developing leadership responsibilities
  • Understanding the community
  • Developing problem-solving skills
  • Great adventures in nature

Each week Cub Scouts get together for about an hour and a half for fun and adventures. Cub Scouts have a role as part of a Patrol (small team) and a Unit (all Cub Scouts as a group).

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 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 airplanes – some even fly in real planes.

There’s a lot more Cub Scouts do too!
