Cub Scouts

The Cub Pack is the second section of the Scout Group following on from Beavers.

Cub Scouts are young people aged between 8 and 10 ½.   There is core flexibility in the age range:  young people can join from age 7½ and can move to Scouts between age 10 and 11. 

It may sometimes be appropriate to extend this flexibility for young people with additional needs.

Cubs enjoyed a night hike up Hod Hill. It was a long walk up a very tall hill, with amazing night sky. At the top they had ago at trying to fly some homemade kites

Remembrance Sleepover


A tradition for Cubs is to have a sleepover for Remembrance. This year they were joined by the Scouts. They took part in lots of fun activities throughout the weekend
