Who are Cub Scouts?

Cub Scouts are girls and boys aged 8 to 10 ½. In Ingleborough District, there are Cub Packs in Ingleton and Settle.

For more information, get in touch.


Who runs a Cub Pack?

Akela, the Cub Scout Leader and Assistant Leaders make up the adult team responsible for a Pack. It is their job to provide a vibrant programme but we are always looking for Helpers, Young Leaders, Skills Instructors and parents/carers to support particular activities on a regular or occasional basis.


What do Cub Scouts do?
Young people join Scouting for fun, adventure and friendship so the Cub Scout Programme has been developed to deliver age appropriate skills for life which meet the needs, likes and abilities of young people of primary school age. Leaders provide an exciting range of activities, delivered both indoors and outdoors, which are based around seven Programme Zones which include:

  • Outdoor Scouting
  • Fitness
  • Discovering the World Around You
  • Beliefs and Attitudes
  • Caring and Community
  • Creative

Through a series of badges, including Joining In Awards, Challenge Badges, Activity Badges and Group Awards, all culminating in the Chief Scout’s Silver Award, Cub can take part in a huge range of activities.

Uniforms can be bought online from Scout Store.

For more information, go to Cub Scouts.

Who can help?
We are always looking for Helpers, Skills Instructors and parents/carers to help with particular activities on a regular or occasional basis. If you feel that you have a particular skill to share or time available to assist a Leader with administration or resources, please contact us.
