Cubs (8 to 10 1/2)

‘The best part of being a Cub is definitely the camps. I love every activity we do especially lighting fires and sleeping in tents with my friends. Hearing the owl in the trees above us when we were last camping was amazing.’

Excitement, adventure and friends are the big things for Cubs. Our programme offers a huge variety of activities from games and indoor activities, to day hikes, camps and outdoor skills like using maps and pitching tents. We learn more about the world, do creative activities, and get involved in our local community in Guildford.

Our Cub Pack is the second section of St Nicolas 9th Guildford Scout Group following on from Beavers. Cubs are from 8 to 10 ½ years old and we have between 30 and 36 Cubs in our Pack, both girls and boys. It’s organised into Sixes, each led by an older Cub called a Sixer.

Cubs meet weekly on Mondays at 6:30PM in term time at Guildford United Reformed Church (GU2 4BS).

Through participation in their programme, Cubs can gain a huge variety of badges and challenge awards. Cubs can achieve their Chief Scout’s Silver Award.

To join in, Cubs make their Cub Scout Promise.  At meetings Cubs wear a dark green uniform sweatshirt with the Group’s green and maroon scarf and a woggle in the colour of their Six.

We usually have a waiting list, so if your son or daughter would like to join us please get in touch before they’re 8 years old. You can send us a message via the Contact Us form and we’ll let you have more information.

Put your phone down and what are you left with? Just teamwork, courage and the skills to succeed.’
