Cub Promise

As a values based movement we all make the ‘The Promise’ an oath that helps us to be our best. The promise is backed up by our Cub Scout Law.

Uniform and Badge Placement

You don’t need a uniform to join. But once you’ve settled in, you’ll start speedily earning badges, and you’ll need to know where to put them!

The Cubs’ uniform consists of a Green soft-brushed poly/cotton sweatshirt with purple tipping. We also ask for Cubs to wear Green & purple-tipped polo shirts too.

Moving up to Scouts

After a couple of years with us, our Cubs have matured, and are ready to leave the Pack and become Scouts. They’ve learnt a lot, but there’s so much more to learn with Scouts. When Akela says goodbye, it’s time to leap into a whole new adventure.

When we moved to Abram, we were worried that our son would struggle with friendships, so we signed him up to Cubs. The first week, he cried that he didn’t want to go, but after a few taster sessions he absolutely loved it and fitted right in making lots of new friends and learning new skills. Scouting is a fantastic place for young people with leaders that provide support and encouragement for the young people to always do their best. He has so many great experiences that he can’t wait to go back each week.

Meeting Times & Days

Cubs normally meet on Tuesday Evenings from 6:45pm to 8:15pm. Doors will open 10-15 minutes before start time.

Camps and events timings will vary from event to event, but we’ll let you know those times well in advance. Our only ask is that you’re always prompt to pick up your child, this enables us to close everything down, leave site, and get back to our own families.
