Cubs

CubsCub Scouts is open to young people aged between eight and ten and a half years old who want to join and can make the Cub Scout Promise.

The Cub Scout Promise

Scouting differs from many organisations in that it requires its Members to make a Promise, the wording for Cub Scouts is slightly simpler than that of the Scout Promise. It is:

I promise that I will do my best

to do my duty to God and to the Queen, to help other people

and to keep the Cub Scout Law.

By making the Promise a young person becomes a Member of the worldwide Movement; they become a Scout.


T
he Cub Scout Law
Every Cub should know their  Cub Scout  Law,  put  simply it  is  something  they should  try  to remember in their everyday lives. The Cub Scout Law is:

Cub Scouts always do their best, think of others before themselves and do a good turn every day.

The Motto
The motto for all Members of the Movement is: Be Prepared.

Cub Scouts wear a green sweatshirt, which can be purchased from local Scout clothing stockists Davensports, Monkhouses and John Lewis Cheadle. Our Group necker (green/yellow) can be purchased directly from the pack.

How are Cub Scouts organised

Cub Scouts meet together as a Pack and work within a variety of small groups called “Sixes”. A team of adults runs the pack, usually led by an Akela. Akela name is taken from Rudyard Kiplings story ‘The Jungle Book’ along with other leaders names like Baloo and Bagheera etc,

Investiture
Making the Promise is the most important act in Scouting and is common to every Section. Scouting has a special ceremony for making the Promise called Investiture or being invested. When a young person makes their Promise they receive their Group necker and the Membership Award or their Moving-On Award and are welcomed as a new Member into the Scout Family.

What do Cubs do?
Cubs take part in a wide range of activities that are designed to be interesting and to challenge them. At the same time they have fun, adventure and make friends along the way. They do this through  taking  part  in  a  programme  of  activities  provided  by  the  Leadership  team  such  as: camping, playing games, trying new things and exploring the outdoors.
