Cub Scouts are young people aged between 8 and 10 1/2, who make up the second section of the scouting family, between Beavers and Scouts. Under some circumstances, Cub Scouts can join the pack as young as 7 1/2 if, for example, they have friends joining at the same time.
Cubs wear a dark green sweatshirt with a group scarf (often called a necker) and a woggle the colour of their Six.
We will need a donation of £10 towards the cost of the scarf, woggle and badges, when your child is invested.

The Cub Scout Promise:
I promise that I will do my best
To do my duty to God and to the Queen

And to keep the Cub Scout Law.

Cub Scouts always do their best
Think of others before themselves
And do a good turn every day.
