Cubs

For boys and girls aged between 8 and 10½ / 11 years old.

Meeting at the John Wood Scout Centre, on Wednesdays and from 18.30-20.00

Our Cub Pack is run by Shelagh Sheppard and assisted by Richard Grainger and Steve Sheppard.

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

Cubs meet together in a Cub Scout Pack and meetings might involve playing some games, working towards badges, learning skills for camping and other activities related to the cub scout programme. They have access to a wide range of activities including archery, wall-climbing, Air Rifle shooting and camping (lots of camping!).

Cub Scout Promise

 

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.

Uniform

  • Group neckerchief with woggle (supplied by Group)
  • Cubs sweatshirt
  • Smart black shoes

Optional Uniform

Optional uniform is not essential, but can be advantageous.

  • Activity trousers
Sweatshirt and activity trousers can be purchased locally at PMG Schoolwear or online at Scout Shops, One Stop Scouting, and Glasgow Scout Shop .

Badges

Cub Scouts can achieve a large and varied range of challenge & activity badges that cater for every taste, skill and capability. There are also core badges for joining or moving on from the Pack, or for time spent in the Scouting movement. Check out our Badges page for more details.

The progressive training scheme leads to the Chief Scout’s Silver Award in this section.

Subs

Scouting is a charity and all our leaders and helpers are unpaid volunteers. However, we do need to charge subscriptions to cover the cost of running the group but we keep these as low as we possibly can. Details of current rates can be found here.

We also charge a one-off fee payable when the Cub is formally invested into the Group (unless moving up from Beavers). This helps to cover the cost of the necker and woggle provided and any badges earned throughout your child’s time in the Group.

Joining Us

Our group is well attended and sometimes there will be a waiting list. To make an enquiry about places, please email our membership coordinator at cubs@16hw-scouts.org.uk.

More membership information can be found on our Join Us page.
