Cub Scouts (based closely on the story The Jungle Book) is the second level of the Scouting Program for boys and girls aged 8-10. It’s also a lot of fun, and quite cool too!
Cub Scouts activities include camping (even with campfires to roast marshmallows!), crafts, games, skits (short plays that your Cub Scout Pack can create on your own), and of course, the Kub Kar Rally – an annual car-craft build and race. You also get to learn a lot about the outdoors, life skills and about Canada and the World. You get to explore different cultures, religion and also work with your community – which is also a lot of fun!
You belong to a group in your Cub Pack called a Lair. Everyone works together in a team – a skill especially acquired in Beaver Scouts. And above all, you make friends that can last a lifetime.
Challenging hikes, weekend camps, and an introduction to water activities like canoeing or kayaking are just a few of the fun outdoor adventures that Cub Scouts enjoy.
With the Cub motto of “Do Your Best” front and center, Cub Scouts are encouraged to try new and more challenging activities. Learning important first aid skills, learning how to pitch a tent for the first time, or leading a game at camp will open the door for Cubs to try other adventures they never thought possible.
Along the way, Cub Scouts learn how to take care of themselves and work as a team – and most importantly have a lot of fun!
The Cub Scout program focuses on six activity areas: The Natural World, Outdoors, Creative Expression, Healthy Living, Home and Community and Canada and the World. Activities include:
