A Cub Scout’s Experience …

‘The best part of Scouting is definitely the camps. I love every activity we do apart from swimming. They told us the pool was 24 degrees centigrade. Minus 24 more like!’

Cub Scouts

Cubs is the second section of the Scouting movement, originally started in 1916 and has gone from strength to strength ever since. Currently there are somewhere in the region of 140,000 Cubs in nearly 8,000 Packs! Many Cub Scouts will have been Beaver Scouts, but some will join Scouting for the first time as Cubs looking for fun,
adventure and friendship.

Who is Cub Scouting for?

Cub Scouts is open to young people aged between 8 and 10½ 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.

Why get Involved?

Cubs gives young people a taster of the exciting activities they will do more of in Scouts. They will go camping, try adventurous activities outdoors, make new friends and enjoy themselves whatever they are doing!

Cubs Online

Cub Scouts have their own exciting pages on The Scout Association’s website where they can play games, do quizzes and complete puzzles. Find out more at:
