Cubs (8 – 10½ years)

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

Who are Cubs?

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.

What uniform do Cubs wear?

Cub uniform consists of a green sweatshirt with your badges sewn on and the 28th ‘neckie’ to represent our local group. There are lots of other optional accessories you can wear such as hats, hoodies, navy blue trousers or shorts, if you’d like to.

When do Cubs meet?

We have two Cub packs.

They meet on Tuesdays from 19:00 – 20:30 and Wednesdays from 19:00 – 20:30.

Joining us soon?

If your child is due to join Cubs soon, welcome!
