Enjoyed your time in Beavers but ready for some new adventures and harder challenges?  Welcome to Cubs!  We do all the fun and exciting things you did at Beavers, but we also introduce some new challenges and activities to get you ready for Scouts.

We'll build on the skills you learnt at Beavers and introduce you to some new ones. It might be learning how to tie your own woggle out of rope to show which "Six" you belong to.  Or you might be carving a work of art out of soap!

We spend plenty of time outdoors and because you're older, our adventures get bigger and our camps get longer so there's more time for exploring, doing activities and staying up late!

There's more to Cubs than your weekly meeting or going on camp.  There are days out with other Cubs (and possibly even Scouts or Explorers) from the District and County, and chances to join-up with our Scouts to do some of the more adventurous activities like canoeing or learning survival skills!

When you join, you'll be part of one of our two Cub Packs which meet on either Monday or Tuesday evenings during term time.  Within the Pack you'll be part of one of our Sixes.  Sixes are smaller team of cubs led by a Sixer and a Seconder, these are older cubs who'll help you settle in and show you how everything works.  You'll complete some activities and games as sixes - working together in competition with the other sixes.

During your first few weeks with us you'll get to try out some of the activities we do and get to know the leaders and the rest of your pack.  We'll also talk to you about making your promise and uniform so that you're ready to be invested.

Interested in joining? Get in touch with us via the contact form!  

 

The Cub promise 

When you make your promise you're joining a worldwide family of over 50 million people in over 200 countries and territories. There are different versions of the promise to reflect Cubs' different religious beliefs:

For members who are Atheist, Humanist or of no faith background:

I promise that I will do my best
to uphold our Scout values, to do my duty to The Queen,
to help other people
and to keep the Cub Scout Law.

For members who are Buddhist:

I promise that I will do my best
to seek refuge in the Triple Gem, to do my duty to the Queen,
to act with compassion towards all life
and to keep the Cub Scout Law.

For members who are Christian or Jewish:

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

For members who are Hindu:

I promise that I will do my best
to follow my dharma and do my duty to the Queen,
to act with compassion towards all life
and to keep the Cub Scout Law.   

For members who are Muslim:

I promise that I will do my best
to do my duty to Allah and then to the Queen,
to help other people
and to keep the Cub Scout Law.

For members who are Sikh:

I promise that I will do my best
to do my duty to Waheguru and to the Queen,
to help other people
and to keep the Cub Scout Law. 

 

Uniform

Cub uniform is comfy, practical and it gives you somewhere to show off all the badges that you'll earn.

The core Cub uniform consists of a dark green sweatshirt and our group necker (scarf).  Different Scout groups have different coloured neckers to help tell them apart, our necker is purple with a black border.  As well as our core uniform there are also optional items of uniform including the Cubs polo shirt and baseball cap, and navy blue Scout activity trousers. 

To order uniform, please speak to your section leader; for information about sizes and pricing, please download a copy of our Cub uniform order form.   

You may also see some of our members wearing a black 1st Hensingham hoody - we get these made to order a couple of times a year. 

 

Badges

Our Cubs love trying new things and by getting stuck in to our programme and embracing new experiences you'll have the chance to earn loads of badges. 

There are two main types of badges, challenge awards and activity badges - you'll get the chance to earn both by taking part in weekly meetings and going on camps.  You might also be able to complete some of the badges at home - but if you want to do this please talk to your section leaders first.  You can find out more about what the different badges are and how to earn them, and where to put them on your uniform by clicking on the links below (please note these links will take you to The Scouts HQ website):

Leadership team

Cubs is led by a team of adult volunteers supported by our Explorer Scout young leaders.  From time to time we may ask for extra help from parents, or you may see leaders from other sections popping in to helping out.  We're always keen to welcome new volunteers to the team - you can find out more here
