Cubs are aged between 8 and 10½ years. They’ve usually, but not always, been to Beavers and coming to Cubs is a real step up for them. The group is larger, so the environment can be noisy at times. The activities are more adventurous. We pursue a programme which is quite heavily focused on progression through the available activity and challenge badges.
During the winter months, we normally meet at the Scout headquarters between 6.30pm and 8.00pm on Thursday evenings. During the summer months, we meet exclusively outdoors at the Boathouse at the same times. When we’re outdoors, we’ll take every opportunity to make the most of the available facilities. There will definitely be access to a range of water-based activities.
