About Cub Scouts

Cubs Scouts began in 1916 for the younger brothers of Scouts and was originally called Wolf Cubs. Cub Scouts was originally based upon the Jungle Book by Rudyard Kipling and many packs still use themes from the book today.

The leader of a Cub pack is traditionally known as Akela, named after the pack leader from the Jungle Book, though other names may be used. It is traditional for Assistant Cub Scout Leaders to take one of the other names from the Jungle Book, such as Baloo or Bagheera.

Cub Scouts are usually aged from 8 to 10½ though the age range of those in the pack may be from 7½ to 11 due to other considerations, such as limited availability in Beavers, moving up with friends or maturity.

The pack is organised into Sixes with a Sixer leading each Six, our current Sixes are:
Black Cobra
White Crocodile
Yellow Tiger
A Six will normally have 6 members but may have more or less to suit the size of the pack.

The pack meetings work from a programme built from the six core zones and will be adopted to meet the needs of the current members. Cubs are encouraged to think for themselves so should feel confident to express their opinions and provide suggestions for modifications to the programme.

Uniform

Cub Scouts wear a green jumper and the group scarf, together with a coloured woggle representing their Six.

Cubs may wear any t-shirt they wish and can remove their jumper during activities, however, the Cub jumper must be worn at the opening and closing ceremonies. I-Scout or Eskmouth T-shirts are available from Sharon if you wish to wear a Scouting T-shirt.

When attending external ceremonies or parades Cubs are also expected to wear black or navy blue trousers and black shoes.

For details of where the badges go please see here.

Cub Adventure Day - Bellboating

Ceremonies

Flag Break

At the start of most pack meetings the pack stands to attention in a semi-circle in front of the flag.
When prompted the duty Sixer or nominated Cub steps forwards and “breaks” the flag (pulls on rope to release the rolled up flag).
The duty Sixer or nominated Cub takes a step back and says “Pack Salute”. The whole pack salutes the flag and then the Sixer or nominated Cub returns to their position within the semi-circle.

Flag Down

At the end of the pack meetings the pack stands to attention in a semi-circle in front of the flag.
When prompted the duty Sixer or nominated Cub steps forwards and lowers the flag, once lowered they take a step back and rejoin the semi-circle.
The leader will give out any notices and dismiss the Cubs.
