Cubs do a wide range of activities, including the occasional camp. Activities range from arts and crafts to climbing and abseiling to canoeing – we like to give the cubs an experience of the adventure that scouting has to offer!
Our programme is carefully planned according to the “Balanced Programme” philosophy that scouting promotes in order to provide a wide range of activities and experiences.
For the first few weeks at Cubs, you do not have to wear a uniform – we just want to make sure that you enjoy coming and are ready to become a Cub. Once you have decided that you want to join permanently, you work with Akela towards your investiture over a few weeks, learning about the Scouting Movement and what it means to be a Cub.
(Scouting is a multi-faith organisation and a number of alternate promises may be used instead to view the alternative promise please click here)
When you join Cubs, you are put into a “Six”. These are named after colours. Each “Six” has a leader (Sixer) and assistant leader (Seconder). Most Cubs have the opportunity to become a Seconder and/or Sixer as they progress through the years, tending to stay in the same Six for the time that they are at Cubs.
Our leadership team is entirely made up of volunteers who enjoy running scout meetings activities and camps! All adult leaders have training and an Access NI check, and there is always at least one adult who is first aid qualified in attendance at all events.
If you would like the opportunity to do something you’d never thought of doing, while having lots of fun and giving back to the community at the same time, please get in touch – we can always do with more leaders! You don’t have to be an expert in all-things-scouting – the only essential ingredient is wanting to have fun scouting!
