For boys and girls aged between 8 and a half to 11 years old.
Our Cub Pack meet on Wednesdays, 6.30pm to 8pm

Our Cub Pack is run by Shelagh and assisted by Steve and Joanne.

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

Making the promise is a big celebration within the Pack. Every time a new Cub decides to join permanently, they chat through their promise with their Cub leader before saying it out loud in front of their fellow Cubs. Family and friends might come along to see this, too. The process is known as being ‘invested’ into Cubs, and it usually takes place a few weeks into your Cub experience, once you’ve had time to settle in.

Everyone is unique but there are some things all Cubs agree on – such as the importance of treating everyone in the Pack with kindness, and doing their best to care for the community and wider world in which they live. Cubs make a promise to do their best to make a positive contribution to society. Depending on their own beliefs, they might also promise to live by their faith.

Cubs choose the promise that best suits them. Below are two promises that are commonly used in our colony.

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.

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.

Cub Scout Law

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

Uniform

To be worn at Beavers and when we go on Scouting Events

  • Group neckerchief with woggle (supplied by Group)
  • Cubs sweatshirt
  • Smart black shoes (For formal events)
  • Comfortable shoes (For activities and everything else)

Optional Uniform

Optional uniform is not essential, but can be advantageous.

  • Cubs green polo t-shirt (especially in the summer term)
  • Activity trousers

Sweatshirt, activity trousers and other Scout Branded items can be purchased locally at PMG Schoolwear or online at Scout ShopsOne 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.

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. This helps to cover the cost of the neckerchief and woggle provided as well as the membership fee to The Scout Association.

Joining Us

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

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