Open to boys and girls aged 8 to 10½ years. Being a Cub opens a world of skills and development opportunities.

Cub Scouts are young people usually aged between eight and ten and a half years old. The Cub section is the second section in the Scouting family. You can join Cub Scouts on or after your eighth birthday and you will usually move on to the next section, Scouts when you are between ten and eleven years old.

There are loads of fun things that you can do as a Cub Scout. You will get a chance to try lots of different activities like swimming, music, exploring, computing and collecting. If you do them properly you will get a badge which you can wear on your uniform.

Cub Scouts also get to go on trips and days out, to places like the zoo, theme parks or a farm. Sometimes you will be able to go camping with the rest of your Pack. This will mean you sleeping in a tent and doing loads of outdoor activities.
