Moving up to Scouts
Eventually, it’ll be time to say farewell to Cubs and embrace your next big adventure.
Uniform and badge placement
You don’t need a uniform to join. But once you’ve settled in, you’ll start speedily earning badges, and you’ll need to know where to put them!
All of our leaders are trained volunteers, working to make sure Scouting is safe, inclusive and accessible. Some lead the Pack week in and week out. Others visit occasionally to help run a session or drop in to share their skills.
The Cub Pack offers a wide range of skills and services to help them to develop, learn and to enjoy themselves. We are open to any young person in the age range 8 to 10 years of age. Cubs can be recognised by their dark green sweatshirt tops. There are loads of fun things that you can do as a Cub Scout. You will get a chance to try lots of different activities like swimming, music, exploring, computing and collecting. If you do them properly you will get a badge which you can wear on your uniform.
Cub Scouts also get to go on trips and days out, to places like the zoo, theme parks or a farm. Sometimes you will be able to go camping with the rest of your Pack. This will mean you sleeping in a tent and doing loads of outdoor activities.
All sections rely upon a ‘training’ scheme in the form of badges to track progress of the cubs and to provide a feeling of achievement. However, cubs is not just about badges, the ‘games’ and activities are very important to scouting, not just because they are enjoyable, but because they are also important in the young persons development.
When Do We Meet?
Monday evening from 6:30 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. at the Aylestone Scout & Guide Hut.
Scouts borrows a great deal of its structure from the Lord Baden Powell’s experience in the military. The cub section is known as a Pack, with cubs being organised into Sixes. We have the following Sixes in our Cub Pack:-
Each Six is made up of around 6 cubs of a range of ages and new cubs normally join a six in which they know at least one person. Each Six is led by a Sixer helped by a Seconder; these are cubs who have demonstrated their competence, good behaviour and been a good example to those in the Pack.
