Cub Scouts focus on the three key headings of the Scout Law. Though the sub points may provide useful discussion points, the emphasis is on the headings for this section.

An exciting adventure for boys and girls 8 years to 12 years. Meetings are held during School Terms  6.30pm to 8pm on Tuesdays nights.

For term3 2018 we are also trialling offering 2 other options in addition to our Panther Pack. (Tuesday 6.20-8pm)

You may choose from any of these 3 options as to what best suits your family, but only ONE section meeting time can be used – you can’t attend multiple different time slots.

We will decide on the continuation of these time slots at the end of term 3 based on whether there are sufficient youth members and adult leaders to continue to run the different options.

Why are run running 3 cub packs? Quite simply because we want to ensure we are offering what our customers (ie: You, our families!) want. The Saturday “Glenmore Pack” in particular is a new concept, not known to have been trialled anywhere in the Penrith district, GWS region or for that matter ANYWHERE else (based on the numerous folks we have spoken to). We know not all options work for all families with there various sports/school/dancing/family/etc commitments – but unless we ASK and TRY we will never know.

==============================================================

Cub Scouts have a lot of fun doing a lot of interesting things! There are games to play, codes and skills to learn, places to see and new friends to meet. Cub Scouts all help each other, and try to help other people too.

As a Cub, you will get together with other boys and girls your age and be led into adventure! You’ll wear your own Cub Scout uniform to show you’re one of us. And you’ll be able to collect special badges to put on your uniform to show your achievements.

Fun Out and About

Cub Scouts get to see a lot and do a lot.

We spend weekends away together camping, fishing and exploring. We go to sports meetings, visit factories, go to the zoo, the museum, or the fire department headquarters. We learn bushcraft, and we learn how to fly model aeroplanes.

There’s a lot more Cub Scouts do too. Why not come along and find out?

Fun in a Pack

You’ll find there are around 24 boys and girls in your Cub Scout Pack. All of them are just like you. They all might have different interests and be good at different things, but they all want to enjoy themselves and have fun. Like you, they’ll be learning new things each week and discovering how great it is to be a Cub Scout.

Fun from the Start

At your first Pack meeting you may feel a bit shy to begin with but it won’t take long to get to know everyone. You’ll learn the Scout Salute, the Handshake, the Motto, the Grand Howl, Pack Calls, the Cub Scout Law and the Cub Scout Promise. The leaders will help you. You’ll soon be making friends with the other Cub Scouts and having a terrific time!

Fun in a Six

Your Pack will be divided into `Sixes’, so named because each `Six’ will have 6 people in it. The first badge you’ll put on your uniform is the colour patch of your Six.

Fun with your Sixer

One of the boys or girls in your group will be your `Sixer’ (a bit like the Captain of your school sports team). You’ll know your Sixer by the two yellow stripes worn on their left pocket.

The Sixer often has a `Second’ as a helper (a bit like a Vice-Captain) who wears one yellow stripe. You too could eventually wear these stripes one day and become a Sixer or a Second of your Pack.

Fun with your Leaders

Your Cub Scout Leaders are adults who may once have been Cub Scouts themselves!

Your Leader is known as `Akela’ (The Wolf – the one who stands alone). Akela’s helpers are known as ‘Bagheera’ (The Panther – the teacher of hunting) and `Baloo’ (The Bear – the teacher of Jungle Law).

The names are from the famous Rudyard Kipling story “The Jungle Book”.

Fun earning Badges

Cub Scouts can earn achievement badges by doing things that interest them and by learning new skills like cycling, electronics, sports, cookery, boating, writing and more.

There are also special Boomerang Badges earned by doing things like tying knots, first aid, hiking in the bush and building models. There are three levels: Bronze, Silver and Gold Boomerang Badges.

Fun near You

Cub Scout Packs meet regularly. The Pack Leader would love to see you at the next Pack meeting.
