Fun and adventure for boys and girls 8 to 10½
Cubs are boys and girls aged 8 to 10½ who meet together to do lots of games, badges and activities, indoors and outdoors. To find out more about Cubs see: Cub Scouts (Scotland). For information about the programme for Cubs, see the Scouts UK page: Cubs.
If you are a Beaver and nearly 8, your Beaver leaders should arrange for you to “swim up” to Cubs. Otherwise, to find a Cub pack near you, use our “Join Scouting!” link.
Parents and Carers
