Cubs (ages 8 to 10½)

Develop new skills. Soar to great heights. Being a Cub opens up a whole other world.

Being a Cub

When you join Cubs, you’ll be introduced to lots of new activities, people and things. Here’s everything you need to know..

Activities and what you’ll get up to

Prepare for excitement and adventure – being a Cub is all about growing and learning in small but mighty ways. As a Cub, you’ll be going on advenutres, learning new skills and helping others.

Badges and Awards

Completing badges and awards challenges you to do more, learn more and be more. See what’s on offer and start your journey to the top.

The Cub Promise

As a values-based movement, we all make a “promise” – an oath that helps us to be our best. Each section has a different promise which can be changed for different religous beliefs.

Uniform and badge placement

You don’t need a uniform as soon as you join Cubs – you can get one after a few weeks, once you’ve settled in. You’ll soon start earning badges and you’ll need to know where to put them!

Moving up to Scouts

Eventually, it’ll be time to say farewell to Cubs and embrace your next big adventure.

Cub leaders

All of our leaders are trained volunteers, working to make sure Scouting is safe, inclusive and accessible. Some lead the Pack week in and week out. Others visit occasionally to help run a session or drop in to share their skills. No matter how much time you have to spare, find out about volunteering on your own terms.
