Shelfords and Stapleford Scout Group

The Cub Pack

We have around 25 Cub Scouts (both boys and girls aged 8 to 11) in our Cub Pack, which meets most weeks in term time at the Scout and Guide HQ in Great Shelford.

We are an active Cub Pack who like to be out and about as much as we can, you can often find us out cycling, walking, lighting fires and playing games outside; When the weather is not so good you will find us in the Scout HQ doing a range of activities to complete Cub badges including cooking, playing games, making things and learning new skills…

About Cub Scouts

For Cubs, excitement and adventure are key. Their programme offers a huge variety of activities surrounding areas of fitness, global and beliefs; whilst allowing them to be creative and get involved in their local communities. Cubs are introduced to exciting outdoor skills and take part in adventurous activities, as well as camps and residential experiences.

The Cub Pack is the second section of the Scout Group following on from Beavers. Cub Scouts are young people aged between 8 and 10 ½.
There is core flexibility in the age range: young people can join from age 7½ and can move to Scouts between age 10 and 11. It may sometimes be appropriate to extend this flexibility for young people with additional needs.
