Welcome to the Cub Scout Section

For Cubs, excitement and adventure are key. Their programme offers a huge variety of activities surrounding areas of fitness, global and beliefs; whilst allowing them to be creative and get involved in their local communities. Cubs are introduced to exciting outdoor skills and take part in adventurous activities, as well as camps and residential experiences.The Cub Pack is the second section of the Scout Group following on from Beavers. Cub Scouts are young people aged between 8 and 10 ½.
There is core flexibility in the age range:  young people can join from age 7½ and can move to Scouts between age 10 and 11.  It may sometimes be appropriate to extend this flexibility for young people with additional needs. For further information, see our guidance on age range flexibility.

Structure
A Cub Pack is usually organised into small groups called Sixes, each headed up by an older Cub called a Sixer, and often with a Seconder as well. Sixes can be used in a number of ways to facilitate the organisation of the Cub Scout Pack. They may provide a ‘home’ area for Cub Scouts to gather at points at the start, during or at the end of the Pack meeting.

Activities
During their time in the Pack, Cub Scouts will get a chance to try a wide range of different activities as well as going on trips, days out, and on camps. Participation and personal development, rather than meeting set standards, is the key approach, and there are a range of badges and challenge awards that Cub Scouts can gain to recognise their achievements.

There are currently 19 Cub packs for your children to choose from in Hornchurch District – details can be found on our ‘Join Scouting’ pages.

 

The Cub Scout Promise:

I promise that I will do my best
To do my duty to God and to the Queen
To help other people
And to keep the Cub Scout Law.

 

 

 

The Cub Scout Law:

Cub Scouts always do their best
Think of others before themselves
And do a good turn every day.

The Cub Scout Motto:

Be Prepared

 

Congratulations to 1st Corbets Tey Cubs

DSC 05421st Corbets Tey Cubs came first in this years District Cubs Soapbox Derby. Not such a big turn out this year as the weather has been very wet this week, But on the day only a couple of quick showers showed up. Ten teams took part in the figure of 8, oval, obstacle, team challenge and endurance race. No major crashes during the day (not one plaster used) just a few loose wheel nuts. We also had an individual scooter challenge time trial. Congratulations to Oliver from 8th Hornchurch Jupiter Cub pack who took home the trophy. The best decorated cart was won by 7th Squirrels Heath Cubs.
The final race was the leaders race. Six excited leaders jumped into the carts and were pushed by the Cubs. The unlucky Cubs who picked Jack to push had a very hard job to do. Lisa Millington from 1st Corbets Tey came first closely followed by Mick Cross from 1st Elm Park.
