Cubs

HISTORY

 

Cubs is the second section of the Scouting movement, originally started in 1916 for younger brothers who wanted a 'look-in'. In nearly a century, the section has constantly evolved and adapted its programme and methods to meet the changing needs of each generation of young people, and these days admits girls as well as boys.

 

LEADERS

 

1st Lowton Cub Scouts is led by Akela (Chris) who is supported by 1 Assistant Cub Scout Leader, Martin and a young Helper, Kieran, who is an Explorer Scout. All of our leaders and helpers under go stringent security checks and are cleared through the Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) (previously CRB) and go through a lengthy training process.

During their time in the Pack, Cub Scouts will get a chance to try lots of different activities like swimming, music, exploring, computing and collecting. There are a range of badges available which Cub Scouts can wear on their uniforms to show everyone how well they're doing.

Cub Scouts also get to go on trips and days out, to places like the zoo, theme parks or a farm. You will also be able to go camping with the rest of the Pack and take part in all kinds of outdoor activities.

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.

The Cub Scout Law:

Cub Scouts always do their best

Think of others before themselves

And do a good turn every day.

The Cub Scout Motto:

Be Prepared
