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 are some of the most memorable events of the year for Cubs. Our Cubs hold their annual camp in May and there are opportunities to attend other camps and camping competitions.
Cubs learn by doing and so will you. Some of the skills you develop will be practical, like knowing how to cook a delicious meal or give someone first aid. Others will allow you to become a master at your chosen hobby. But the most important skills you’ll learn at Cubs are the ones that will make you feel confident and happy in your own skin. We call these character skills. Whatever skills you’d like to learn, it’s all about having the courage to try new things and learn from them.
We ensure a smooth transition to the Scouts section at around 10½ and we guarantee our Cubs a place in our Scouts.
