Being a Cub
When you join Cubs, you’ll be introduced to lots of new activities, people and things. On this page you should be able to find everything you need to know.
Activities and what you’ll get up to
Prepare for excitement and adventure! Try huge variety of activities surrounding areas of fitness, global and beliefs; be creative and get involved in your local community. Learn exciting outdoor skills and take part in adventurous activities, as well as camps and residential experiences.
Completing the award, challenges you to do more, learn more and be more. See what’s on offer and start your journey to the top.
As a values based movement we all make the ‘The Promise’ an oath that helps us to be our best. There are multiple available promises, both religious and non-religious, and we encourage Cubs to discuss the promises and chose the one that they feel most comfortable with.
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!
Moving up to Scouts
Eventually, it’ll be time to say farewell to Cubs and embrace your next big adventure.
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.
