Who are Cubs?

Cubs are young people aged 8 to 10½ who:

  • Try new things
  • Go on adventures
  • Make new friends
  • Curious about the world around them
  • Help others and make a difference in their local communities

Every week, they gather in groups called Cub Packs achieving anything they set their minds to and of course having lots of fun along the way.

What do Cubs get up to?

Being a Cub is all about growing and learning in small but mighty ways. Here are some of the things you’ll get up to with your new friends.

Going on adventures

Race down a river. Tell stories by torchlight. Fall asleep beneath the stars. Alongside your Pack, you’ll spend plenty of time in the great outdoors. Together, you might build a den in your local park, or create an edible raft out of sweets, or go on a moonlit hike through your hometown. You’re guaranteed to have plenty of adventures on your own doorstop, because being a Cub is all about making the most of what you have, wherever and whoever you are.

Learning new skills

Others will allow you to become a master at your chosen hobby, or help you to succeed in whichever job you decide to do when you grow up. Cubs are the ones that will make you feel confident and happy in your own skin. Whatever skills you’d like to learn, it’s all about having the courage to try new things and learn from them.

Helping others

Cubs work as a team to help other people. Together, you’ll learn about global issues and what we can all do to help solve them. You’ll also make an impact in your own community, through activities such as campaigning to save your local library, collecting donations for a foodbank, or planting trees in a neighbouring park.
