About the Cub Pack
Cub Scouts are usually aged between 8
and 10 ½ (although some may stay until they reach their eleventh birthday). We
aim to help your child to learn to develop a certain amount of independence as
well as learning to work and play as part of a team. To that end, the Cub Pack
is divided into small groups known as Sixes and they work to a programme
designed to help them develop the necessary skills. There are Progress Awards
to achieve and Activity Badges to gain as they progress through the Pack.
The Pack Ceremonies and Leaders names
are all based on events or taken from characters in the Jungle Books written by
Rudyard Kipling. It is well worth getting a copy to read to your child as we
unfortunately do not often get time to do so at meetings.
The pack leaders are: -
Akela - Bev Pryke
Leader of the Wolf Pack - Cub Scout Leader (CSL)
Shere Khan - Steve Crooks
The Tiger - Assistant CSL
Baloo - John Pullen
The Bear - Assistant
Kaa - Lizz Cass
The Snake - Assistant CSL
Cubs wear a dark green sweatshirt with a Group scarf (often called a necker) and a woggle in the colour of their Six.
The Cub Scout flag is yellow, bearing the Scout symbol and motto.
