Create the Path

Cub Scouts are girls and boys between the ages of 8 and 11 who set off together on an exciting trail of adventure.

A Cub Scout Unit is guided by a team of trained adult volunteers whose Scouting names are taken from Rudyard Kipling's Jungle Book. Within the Unit are smaller groups called Patrols, each led by a youth Patrol Leader (PL) and helped by an Assistant Patrol Leader (APL).

Cubs can earn a number of different badges to wear on their uniform or display on their camp blanket. We particularly encourage our Cubs to work on their Boomerang Awards and Achievement badges, for them to acquire new skills they'll find useful in Scouting and in life.

What do we do?

Our Cubs enjoy many different activites every year. Cub meetings are often held away from the hall and include activities such as indoor rock climbing, laser tag or visiting the police or fire station. We also practice our fire lighting (and singing) with campfires at the hall. In Summer we have a meeting at the pool and work on our swimming badges. Our whole Group camps together yearly so that the Joeys, Cubs and Scouts can get to know one another but we have our own Pack Holidays too.

There are also the Cub Region Camp and the Cub Day Out where South Met Cubs can get together for some fun and games. A Cuboree is held every 3 years where we can camp with others from around New South Wales. We go on hikes and learn to abseil, that is when we're not flying in a light aircraft at the Air Activities Centre.

When and Where?

Cubs meet on Wednesday nights during school terms from 7:00pm - 8:30pm. Once a term we leave the hall to take the Cubs to an off-site activity, so you might like to contact our Group Leader George Murray (Rama) on 02 9667 1065 to make sure Cubs will be meeting at the hall on the night. When you come to our hall a Leader will talk to you, answer any questions you might have and give you a Cub Scout Info Pack (pdf).
