Cubs is the second section in the scouting family, after beavers and before scouts. A cub is typically 8-10.5yrs old.
Why The Jungle Book?
When Baden-Powell started the Scout Movement for eleven to sixteen year olds, he found that the younger children wanted to join too. Soon after he started a section off to cater for them and based the section ideas and the programme activities on one of the most popular stories at the time – Rudyard Kipling’s Jungle Book!. This section was known as the Wolf Cubs and remained under that name until 1966, when it became Cub Scouts.
We meet on a Tuesday night during term time 6.30 – 8.00pm at the Scout Hut.
