Introduction

Cubs is the second section of the Scouting movement, originally started in 1916 for younger brothers who wanted a 'look-in'. 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.

Structure

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.

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

The Cub Scout Promise:

I promise that I will do my best
To do my duty to God and to the Queen
To help other people 
And to keep the Cub Scout Law.

The Cub Scout Law:

Cub Scouts always do their best 
Think of others before themselves 
And do a good turn every day.

The Cub Scout Motto:

Be Prepared
