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 - a mixture of both girls and boys who are taking part in lots of fun and exciting activities.
When you join Cubs, you’ll be introduced to lots of new activities, people and things.
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.
Scouting is available to people of all faiths.
This year's Kent Cub Pack Challenge is brought to you from a distance and is designed to be completed either as a Pack in virtual meetings or for Cubs to do on their own at home - it is entirely up to you! We will release one challenge every week on Fridays between now and the Summer then badges will be available to order online towards the end.
You can send us photos and videos of your challenge using this link ensuring that you have permission from the parents/guardian for the images to be used online in line with the Kent Scouts Privacy Notice.
As with previous years, for the Pack to earn the challenge not every individual cub has to do every single challenge, but some Cubs from your Pack have to have been involved with each one at one time or other across the board.
We hope you will join us on this virtual adventure - we can't wait hear all about your Challenge.
Participation in any activity that takes place at home recommended and encouraged by Kent Scouts or any District or Group that are part of Kent scouting are totally under the control, safety and permission of the parent or carers of each young person.
Under no circumstances will Kent Scouts accept any liability or responsibility for any accidents; incident or injury to any person or persons or damage to property whilst participating in these activities.
8. Invent a prototype of something useful for the Cub meeting hall out of scrap supplies
- Create a box or jar that you can fill with ideas of things that you'd like to do at the end of the lockdown period - write things down on little bits of paper and fill it as often as you like
- Invest someone at home into your virtual cub pack, this could be a parent, sibling, pet or even a teddy bear! This means that you will need to learn the Cub Promise and law by heart and be prepared to help someone else to say it.
- Create your own thank you poster from Cubs for key workers and display it in your window.
- Camouflage yourself to blend in with a background e.g. blending in with the grass or your bed covers.
- Write or communicate digitally the Cub Scout promise in another language.
- Invent a game that you can either play at a virtual cub meeting or save up to run at your first cub meeting back.
- Look at the badges you have earned as a Cub and decide which is your favourite - tell us about what you did to earn it and re-do one of the activities with something different this time.
