Cub Scouts

7.5 - 11 years

Can you handle this much fun?

Cub Scouts are boys and girls between the ages of eight and ten and a half / eleven. The objective of the Cub Scout program is to provide a group environment which is intellectually stimulating, physically vital and directed towards satisfying the child’s basic need to face and overcome challenges. The activities are based on the natural sense of fun and enthusiasm of the age group and thus the training is achieved largely through games, interaction in small groups and activities.

Cub Scouts comprise a Pack which is limited to 24 Cub Scouts of four Sixes except in special circumstances. Cub Scout Sixes are led by a Sixer.

A Sixer is generally one of the older Cub Scouts and is appointed by the Cub Scout Leader in consultation with other Leaders because of known leadership qualities. The Sixer is liked and respected by others in the Six. A Sixer is identified by a stripe on their pocket with the word 'Sixer' on it. Similarly a Second is identified by the same badge with ' Second' on it.

The Sixer and Second will take a new Cub under their wings and help them learn all they can about being a Cub Scout. They will welcome them into their Group and make sure that your child is comfortable and on the way to making new friends.
