What is Cub Scouting?

Cub Scouts are usually aged between 8 and 10 1/2 years old, although these ages can vary due to special circumstances. A group of Cub Scouts is called a Pack - at 1st Clayton-le-Moors we have two Cub Packs, meeting on Monday and Friday evenings. We call these All Saints Cub Pack and St James Cub Pack respectively.

A Cub Pack is divided into small groups of Cub Scouts, called Sixes, with each Six named after a colour, and a Sixer and Seconder in charge of each Six.

During their time with the Cub Pack, a Cub Scout can take part in many different activities, visits, residential camps, and events. A lot of these activities can result in a badge being awarded to show that the Cub Scout has achieved a particular standard in that activity. These badges are worn on the Cub uniform to show everybody else how well the Cub Scout is doing in the Pack.

Cub Scout Promise, Motto and Law

Cub Scouts make a Promise when they join Scouting:

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

The Cub Scout Law:

Cub Scouts always do their best,
Think of others before themselves,
And do a good turn every day.

The Cub Scout Motto is to:

Be prepared.

The Balanced Programme

The Scout Association has a programme which aims to promote the growth and development of children and young people.

The philosophy underpinning the programme is that every Cub Scout should participate in a Balanced Programme over a period of time.

Providing Cub Scouts with a programme that is both balanced and exciting is one of the most rewarding challenges for our leaders.

What we offer to young people in the Cub Scout section is a range of activities, events and experiences built around six programme zones. You balance the programme in the same way you'd balance a diet, by simply ensuring that over a given period (a month or a term, for example), there is something from each zone in the Programme.

Young people experience Scouting by regularly taking part in quality activities, drawn from each programme zone. Personal achievement can be recognised by earning awards and badges leading to the chief scout's awards and the Queen's scout award.

We deliver the activities across the programme zones using a variety of methods, and the final element of the Balanced Programme for Cub Scouts is the Bottom Line - a list of things you'd hope to see going on if you were to walk into a typical Pack meeting.

The Bottom Line

The bottom line with Cub Scouts is the following:

Getting on with others
Keeping the Promise
Personal development
Working together
