8 to 10½ years

Life as a Cub Scout is fun, adventurous and rewarding.

Cub Scouts is the second section of the Scouting Movement for 8 to 10 ½ year olds. A Cub Scout Pack can have up to 36 Cub Scouts and is split into smaller groups called Sixes.They meet weekly to take part in a wide range of activities designed to be interesting and challenging with plenty of time being spent outdoors. After a few weeks, your child will be ‘invested’. This is when they promise to do their best and help others.

As a Cub Scout your child will join their Cub Pack on exciting adventures, discovering hidden talents and exploring the world around them. In this section, excitement and adventure are key. The Cub Scout Programme offers Cub Scouts a huge variety of activities, indoors and outdoors, allowing them to be creative and get involved in their local communities.


Earn badges, get active and embrace the challenge.

We believe that young people learn by doing, so our Cub Scout Programme is packed full of amazing activities to engage and challenge Cub Scouts of all abilities.

You can expect your child to get involved in:

  • camps
  • water activities
  • nature walks
  • cooking
  • crafts
  • sports
  • and many more…



Everybody knows that Cubs love badges that get sewn onto the uniform. There are three sorts of achievement badges; activity badges, staged activity badges and challenge awards. Cubs will work towards some of these during their meetings but are also encouraged to work towards badges of their own choice at home so if you are stuck for something to do, have a look at the badge and award links for inspiration and encourage your Cub to bring the evidence of their effort in to show the Leaders and other Cubs.


Activity badges

Many of the badges available are activity badges, which allow Beaver Scouts to show their progress in existing pursuits, but also to try all kinds of new things and form new interests.

Staged activity badges

These are similar to the Activity Badges above, but have different levels of achievement and can be carried through from Beavers to Explorers.

Challenge awards

Gaining a challenge badge involves accomplishing a number of more ambitious tasks within the Colony or community. There are several challenge badges across a number of themes, from the physical and outdoorsy to challenges dealing with the local community or issues connected with the Scouting world.

Peace of mind
