The core ages of cubs are 8 to 10½ years of age – a perfect age for finding out more about themselves and their skills – challenging themselves to explore the world.
Cubs try lots of activities to gain their Challenge badges: they develop leadership skills; try new outdoor activities; find new hobbies and undertake a personal challenge to help them develop themselves. The pinnacle of achievement is to reach the Chief Scout’s Silver award – the highest award a Cub can get.
Along the way, there are lots of games to play and laughs to be had as the Cubs try their hand at new things. They can gain activity badges to reflect their own interest and to help them find new hobbies.
We work with the Cubs to develop practical skills that will support them in the world but also softer skills such as empathy, resilience and leadership.
Scouting is a uniformed, non-military organisation. Badges earned are worn on their uniform and all cubs are expected to have a Cub jumper. We will provide the scarf and badges!

The Cubs meet on a Friday between 7pm and 8.30pm.
