Cub Scouts (8-10.5)

Cub Scouts is where the action begins and is for girls and boys aged 8 to 10 years old. With activities like camping, fire lighting, exploring, and making new friends, they’re an active lot.

Young people can become a Cub Scout shortly before their eighth birthday

Cub Scouts have a wide variety of activities to offer. Maybe it’s sleeping under the stars on a summer camp, making a den or a hike in the local wood. Just because they can’t hike to the four corners of the Earth, doesn’t mean they can’t enjoy their own adventures.

When they’re not busy in the outdoors, Cubs learn new skills to serve them well for the future. Maybe it’s learning to cook, being able to perform first aid or just generally building confidence to speak out – all help to prepare our young people for whatever life brings them.

Put your phone down and what are you left with? Just teamwork, courage and the skills to succeed.’
