A place to meet new friends, have fun and go on adventures.
Along the way, gain activity badges in lots of different topics the choice is up to you! there are staged badges that you can start in one section and continue to pass through higher stages as you go through the sections, or go all out and challenge yourself on the Award badges until you gain the top award in Cub Scouts, THE CHIEF SCOUTS SILVER AWARD.
Cub Scout programming originates from the story ‘ The Jungle Book’ wrote by Rudyard Kipling ( a very good friend of Baden Powell) . If you read the book you will find that we meet in packs, as did the wolves with their leader Akela. Other leaders also get their names from the story; Baloo, Chill, Hathi to name just a few, are the different animals in the story who helped Mowgli (the little man cub).
Cub scouts has changed over the years moving forward with the times. You yourselves can help with the programme. Tell your Akela, your assistant leaders, even your young leaders or even me, about the things you would like to do? Places you would like to go? Have a forum?
The fun, challenges and adventure are out there, it’s up to you! 😀

Cub Scout Badges

The Cub Scout Law
Cub Scout’s always do their best
think of others before themselves
and do a good turn everyday
The 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
The Cub Scout Motto
The Grand Howl
At the start of an evening, packs form a circle for the ‘Grand Howl’!
" DYB, DYB, DYB; DOB, DOB, DOB" was called!
They come from the Wolf Cub Grand Howl and stand for "Do Your Best / Do Our Best"
This hasn't been used by scouting since 1967. Although I know of one pack where the young cubs wanted to bring it back and still use it, today.
The Grand Howl is still the traditional way of opening a Cub Scout Meeting, but now we say 'Cubs do your best' 'Akela! we will do our best'
