‘The best part of Scouting is definitely the camps. I love every activity we do apart from swimming. They told us the pool was 24 degrees centigrade. Minus 24 more like!’
A Cub Scout Pack can have up to 36 Cub Scouts and is split into smaller groups called Sixes. Cubs take part in a wide range of activities designed to be interesting and challenging. A Cub Scout meeting consists of games and activities with plenty of time spent outdoors. All Cubs wear a uniform and can earn badges which they wear on their uniform.

Cub Scouts also get to go on trips and days out, to places like the zoo, theme parks or a farm. Cub Scouts will also be able to go camping with the rest of their Pack, meaning they sleep in a tent and do lots of outdoor activities. Camps and holidays are some of the most memorable events of the year for Cubs.
