What is Cub Scouts all about?

Cub Scouts is for young people starting from 8 years of age who transition to the Scout Section after turning 11 and before turning 12 years of age.

Cub Scouts are: -

  • Creating their own paths
  • Developing their sense of place
  • Exploring the world around them
  • Encountering new experiences
  • Expanding perspectives
  • Determining their own adventures
  • Building upon friendships

They generally meet once a week as well as going on some super cool weekend activities.

There are fun camps for Cub Scouts which could have interesting themes like ‘Space Odyssey’ or ‘Pirates on the High Seas’. With some experience, you can even join a five day ‘Cuboree’ with hundreds of other excited Cub Scouts at Gilwell Park, near Gembrook.

Cub Scouts play fantastic games like scavenger hunts or they might build a catapult together.

They can also achieve a range of badges for bushcraft, cooking, canoeing and many other skills. 

The highest achievement in the Cub Scout Section is the Grey Wolf Award.
