About Cub Scouts

AGES 8, 9 & 10

The Scouting adventure continues in Cub Scouts, with new challenges and opportunities helping define the learning journey.

THIS SECTION IS ALL ABOUT

  • Scouts creating their own paths and setting the challenges
  • More established leadership responsibilities
  • Developing new skills
  • Understanding their communities
  • Developing problem-solving skills
  • Greater adventures in nature

CUB SCOUTS CREATE THEIR OWN PATHS, FINDING ADVENTURE IN NOT ONLY THE ACTIVITY, BUT THE CHALLENGE OF LEADING THE WAY.

Scouts will decide their own adventures and take more responsibility in the process of Plan>Do>Review>. They’ll explore further into nature and their communities, building an understanding of their responsibilities to both. Their active imaginations will help them understand their roles as part of a Patrol and Unit as social groups become increasingly important.

Creativity and imagination are at the centre of the Cub Scout experience. Scouts will develop and use skills and ideas to make their program more adventurous, fun, challenging, and inclusive. Scouts will work as a Patrol to problem-solve, to make, construct, design and invent. Their diverse program of creative, outdoor, personal growth, and community challenges will promote Scouts to be active, express themselves, build confidence and conquer fears.

Scouts will build on existing interests and discover new ones, sharing many of these with their Scouting peers.
