Cubs is the second section of scouts for boys and girls aged 8 to 11, with a focus on exploring the outdoors and living an active lifestyle in a safe and friendly environment.
Cubs meet on Thursday nights from 6.30 to 8.30pm.
Cub Scouts have a lot of fun doing a lot of interesting things, with the focus being on exploring the outdoors and living an active lifestyle in a safe and friendly environment. Cubs are introduced to traditional Scouting skills such as tying knots and using a map and compass, and take part in outdoor adventures such as camping, rock climbing, abseiling, bushwalking, canoeing, etc., Cubs also learn valuable life skills such as leadership and taking responsibility for themselves, and they are taught the value of citizenship and how to give back to their communities. Each Cub Scout collects special badges to demonstrate their skills and achievements, and has the opportunity to achieve their Grey Wolf Award before moving onto the Scout section.
In Cub Scouts, young people learn about:
Health and first aid
Responsibility for self
Leadership and teamwork
The Cub Scout Uniform consists of the dark blue shirt with the section colour, which is Yellow, across the sleeve, yoke and collar.
