Cub Scouts (8-10½ year olds)

Cub Scouts belong to the second Section in the Scouting family. The core age range of the Cub Scout Pack is from 8 years to 10½ years. A young person may join at 7½ years and remain in the Pack until their 11th birthday.


There are loads of great things that you can do as a cub scout. Our cubs enjoy getting outdoors, having sleepovers and camping in tents. Cubs spend their time doing everything from archery to climbing, walking to swimming and geocaching to painting.

Cubs also like to get creative, often by dressing up, spend lots of time being active, explore the world around them and have fun as a pack.


Master something, or trying something shiny and new. If it spurs your beaver on or stirs their interest, there's probably a badge for it. There are 52 staged and activity badges available.

Challenge Awards are all about stepping outside our comfort zone. Trying something they wouldn’t normally be interested in. Taking the lead on something that scares them. Along the way, then'll unlock hidden talents and stand tall.


Cub Scouts wear a green sweatshirt with their badges sewn on, and a group necker.
