Cub Scouts (8-10.5)
Cub Scouts is the second stage of the scouting journey for boys and girls, who join, or move up from Beavers, at age eight.
Our Cubs pack meets on Thursday evenings during school terms, from 6.30pm to 8.00pm, at the church hall at All Saints Weston Green. We spend as much time as we can in the outdoors and cubs get the opportunity to go on camp, spending one or more nights away, including nights under canvas in the summer.
Our team of trained, uniformed adult volunteer leaders is headed by Akela (Jack Plumbridge, formerly known as Baloo) and Bagheera (Kirstie Wood), assisted by Hathi (Debbie Di Biase) and Chil (Ophelia Dodds). Young leaders from our Explorer Scouts group also attend Cubs meetings and help the leaders. Parents are expected to help at one evening every term and as needed at camps and weekend events.
Most of our Cubs join 1st Weston Green as Beavers and move up to Cubs after their eighth birthday. But we occasionally have space for young people who are 8 to 10 years old to join the group as Cubs. We will give priority to any young people whose parents or carers can join the group as adult volunteers. See the join page for details and to add a name to our waiting list.
