Cub Scouts is for young people starting from 8 years of age who
transition to the Scout Unit after turning 11 and before turning 12.
Cub Scouts are:
-Creating their own paths
-Developing their sense of place
-Exploring the world around them
-Encountering new experiences
-Determining their own adventures
-Building upon friendships
They meet once a week as well as going on some super cool weekend activities. There are fun camps for Cub Scouts which could have interesting themes like ‘Space Odyssey’ or ‘Pirates on the High Seas’. A 5-day ‘Cuboree’ with thousands of other excited Cub Scouts at Gilwell Park, near Gembrook. Cub Scouts play fantastic games like scavenger hunts, or they might build a catapult together. They also earn a range of badges for bushcraft, cooking, camping and many other skills. There’s even a ‘SES’ badge, designed with the help of SES, which involves the Cub Scouts being aware of emergency phone numbers and learning about security issues for themselves or their homes.
