Cub Scouts

Cubs are the second section of the Scouting movement.

Started in 1916 for younger brothers, who wanted a 'look-in' to Scouts. In nearly a century  the section has constantly evolved and adapted its programme and methods to meet the changing needs of each generation of young people, and these days admits girls as well as boys.

Basics

Cub Scouts are young people aged between 8 and 10 1/2, who make up the second section of the Scouting family, between Beavers and Scouts. During their time in the Pack, Cub Scouts will get a chance to try lots of different activities like swimming, music, exploring, computing and collecting.

Cub Scouts also get to go on trips and days out, to places like the zoo, theme parks or a farm. Sometimes they will be able to go camping with the rest of the Pack and take part in all kinds of outdoor activities.

Joining

Under some circumstances, Cub Scouts can join the Pack as young as 7 1/2 if, for example, they have friends joining at the same time, or are mature enough to move on early from Beavers, (and there is space in the Pack). Such decisions are taken by Cub and Beaver Scout leaders.

The next All Wales Cub Fun Day will be taking place in June 2019 - for further details please click CFD 2019

 

Structure and organisation

A Pack of Cub Scouts is organised into Sixes, with each Six named after a colour, and a Sixer and a Seconder in charge.

Cub Scout Law 

Mae Sgowtiaid Cýb bob amser yn gwneud eu gorau, meddwl am eraill cyn eu hunain a gwneud tro da bob dydd.

A Cub Scout always does their best, thinks of others before themselves and does a good turn everyday.
