The Cub Scout section is the second stage within the Scouting family. Cubs are members of a Cub Scout Pack which is split into smaller groups called Sixes. Each Six has a “Sixer” who is the team leader, and a “Seconder” who is the assistant team leader.
Cubs take part in a wide range of activities designed to be interesting and challenging. A Cub Scout meeting consists of games and activities with plenty of time spent outdoors.
Camps and sleepovers are some of the most memorable events of the year for Cubs.
All our leaders have undergone a DBS check and they all undertake training in running a Cub Scout section. You can be certain that your child will be in safe hands!
How much does it cost?
Each Cub pack sets a weekly, monthly or termly membership subscription which helps with the cost of running the weekly meeting. This varies from Pack to Pack but as a guide you can expect to pay between £2 and £3 per week (often with a discount offered for a termly payment). This usually includes the cost of badges earned by Cub Scouts and which are worn on their uniform.
For special evenings or activities (for example, visits to places of interest or special activities provided on our behalf by external organisations) there is usually an additional fee to cover costs. Similarly, camps or sleepovers will attract an additional fee.
We are a uniformed organisation and parents/carers will be asked to buy a uniform for their child once they have settled into the section. The leader(s) of the section will be able to advise you what your child will need, where it can be obtained from and the likely cost.
