The Cub Section is the second section within the Group, following on from Beavers. Cub Scouts are young people aged between 8 and 10 1/2. The Cub Pack is organised into smaller groups called Sixes, each headed up by an older Cub known as a Sixer.
We currently have two Cub Packs – the Wolves who meet on Monday nights and the Bears who meet on Tuesday nights. These meetings are usually at the Daviot Scout Hut, but are occasionally held elsewhere.
During their time in the Pack, our Cubs will get a chance to try a wide range of different activities as well as going on day trips and camps. Participation and personal development, rather than meeting set standards, is the key approach.
Cubs do a wide range of activities, including the occasional camp. Activities range from arts and crafts to climbing and abseiling to kayaking and sailing – we like to give our Cubs an experience of the adventure that Scouting has to offer!
Our programme is carefully planned according to the “Balanced Programme” philosophy that Scouting promotes in order to provide a wide range of activities and experiences.
There are a range of badges and challenge awards that Cub Scouts can gain to recognise their achievements.
Further information about badges and awards for the Cub section can be found here.
