Cub logo Cub Scouts are aged 8 to 10½ years old and are part of a pack. The pack is led by a Leader known as Akela and is helped by other Leaders who also take their cubsnames from the Jungle Book. Cubs are grouped together into Sixes, each Six is led by a Cub who is the Sixer and helped by a Cub called a Seconder.

There are loads of fun things that you can do as a Cub Scout. You will get a chance to try lots of different activities like swimming, music, exploring, computing and collecting. If you do them properly you will get a badge which you can wear on your uniform.

Cub Scouts also get to go on trips and days out, to places like the zoo, theme parks or a farm. Sometimes you will be able to go camping with the rest of your Pack. This will mean you sleeping in tent and doing loads of outdoor activities.
