Cub Scouts are girls and boys aged 8-10½ years who form the second section in the Scouting family between the Beaver and Scout sections.

From Saffron Walden to Southend-on-Sea, Cubs usually meet each week and will get a chance to try lots of different activities like swimming, music, exploring, computing and collecting. There are a range of badges available which Cub Scouts can wear on their uniforms to show everyone how well they’re doing.

Cub Scouts also get to go on trips and days out, to places like the zoo, theme parks or a farm. Sometimes they will be able to go camping with the rest of the Pack and take part in all kinds of outdoor activities.

Cub Scouts belong to packs led by a Cub Scout Leader and work in teams called Sixes led by a senior Cub Scout called a Sixer.
