Join the adventure!

Cubs

Life as a Cub Scout is fun, adventurous and rewarding

As a Cub Scout, your child will join their Cub Pack on exciting adventures, discovering hidden talents and exploring the world around them.

Cubs is the second section of the Scouting Movement for 8 to 10 1⁄2 year olds. In this section, excitement and adventure are key. The Cub Scout Programme offers Cub Scouts a huge variety of activities, indoors and outdoors, allowing them to be creative and get involved in their local communities.

After a few weeks, your child will be ‘invested’. This is when they promise to do their best and help others.

Earn badges, get active and embrace the challenge

We believe that young people learn by doing, so our Cub Scout Programme is packed full of amazing activities to engage and challenge Cub Scouts of all abilities.

You can expect your child to get involved in:

  • camps
  • water activities
  • nature walks
  • cooking
  • crafts
  • sports
  • and many more

Learn the Cub Scout Promise
The Cub Scout Promise helps Cubs to understand and remember the values of Scouting.

Every young person and Leader makes their Promise as part of being invested into Scouting. Speak to your Leader to find out more about investiture.

Why not help your child to choose the Promise that’s right for them?

For Hindus and Buddhists

I promise that I will do my best
to do my duty to my Dharma and to the Queen,
to help other people and to keep the Cub Scout Law.

For Muslims

I promise that I will do my best
to do my duty to Allah and to the Queen,
to help other people and to keep the Cub Scout Law.

For humanists, atheists and those with no defined faith

I promise that I will do my best to uphold our Scout values,
to do my duty to the Queen,
to help other people and to keep the Cub Scout Law.

For Christians, Jews and Sikhs

I promise that I will do my best,
to do my duty to God and to the Queen,
to help other people and to keep the Cub Scout Law.

Ensuring your child is safe

Leaders adhere to our anti-bullying, equal opportunities, safety and child protection policies.

Cub Scouts take part in activities and learn new skills under the supervision of adult volunteers. They work effectively and safely with young people to deliver the Scouting Programme and have access to training to support them in their role.
