Cub Scouts is the Section after Beavers, aged between 8 and 10. During their time at Cubs they will enjoy lots of fun, safe and adventurous activities.
Cubs is open to boys and girls aged 8 to 10 years of age.
Our Cub Packs currently meet on:
- Tuesdays, 7.00pm to 8.30pm – Hopkins Cubs
- Thursdays, 7.00pm to 8.30pm – Walton Cubs
Occasionally there are optional activities on other evenings and at weekends.
We charge a membership subscription fee of £10.00 per month. This membership fee covers activity insurance, programme materials, badges and also goes towards the heating, lighting and maintenance of the building. It is still payable even if a member does not attend a Pack Night.
Please also be aware that activities outside of the section meeting may be at extra cost.
Cub Scouts have a lot of fun, learn lots of new things and take part in adventurous activities. They have the chance to gain badges and awards in recognition of the effort made by each youngster at their own level of development and understanding. The programme includes a wide selection of activities with the emphasis on the outdoors.
All of our meetings are ran by trained and experienced leaders who are supported by a team of skills instructors and helpers. Also, all of our Adult Volunteers are vetted by an enhanced Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) check.
As with the other sections of 1st Bedworth, Cubs wear a uniform to their pack night and to some other activities:
- A smart green coloured sweatshirt
- Royal blue necka’
- Black, navy blue or dark grey trousers or shorts
- Black, navy blue, or dark grey socks
- Black boots or shoes.
The sweatshirt is available from us and costs £14.50. Their necka’ is presented free when the Cub is invested. Most Cubs wear their school trousers and shoes with their uniform.
Once Cub Scouts turn 10 years old they should start moving up to Scouts, the next Section (age group) to continue learning Skills for Life.
Our Cub Scout Section is very popular and we currently have a joining list. If you would like your youngster to join Cubs then please get in contact with us.
