About Cubs

Who can join?

All boys and girls aged 8 – 10½ years old.

Tell me more…

Cubs Scouts were formed in 1916 due to popular demand at that time from boys who were too young to join the “Boy Scouts” which was founded by Robert Baden-Powell in 1907. This section of Scouting is open to both boys and girls between the ages of 8 and 10½ years of age.

Cubs get the opportunity to take part in numerous activities such as sports, competitions, computing, camping, weekends away and educational visits. As a recognised training section Cubs take part in a full and balanced programme working towards gaining Challenge and Activity Badges, developing good habits of health and personal safety, exploring the local community and hopefully taking a more active role in the local area and the wider world they live.

When a Cub reaches the age of 10½ they have the opportunity to move on to Scouts.
