Welcome to the virtual home of the 1st Bradley Stoke Cub Packs


Cubs is the second section of the Bradley Stoke Scouts group and is for boys and girls aged between 8 and 10 ½. We have an active program with a balance of indoor and outdoor activities.

The Cub pack is divided into smaller groups called Sixes, each headed up by an older Cub called a Sixer and an assistant called a Seconder. Cubs was originally based on the theme of The Jungle Book, by Rudyard Kipling, and many leaders traditionally adopt names from the characters in the book, such as Akela or Baloo.1st Bradley Stoke has two cub packs that meet on different nights at the Brook Way Activity Centre.

Monday Pack, meets from 18:45 to 20:15 
Tuesday Pack, meets from 18:30 to 20:00 

Cubs build on and further develop the skills learned in Beavers through the scouting ethos of leaning by doing, for example we won’t spend hours talking about how to read a map, instead we’ll go for a walk and let the Cubs experience how the map fits the real world.
Challenge and adventure are offered in a wide variety of indoor and outdoor activities including games, climbing, abseiling, fire lighting and backwoods cooking, wide games, shooting, archery, 
kayaking, crafts, sailing, visits and outings, and of course camping. The leaders actively engage and support the Cubs in their personal development, empowering them to make a positive contribution to society.

There are a range of badges available which Cub Scouts can wea
r on their uniforms to show everyone how well they’re doing, culminating in the Chief Scout Silver Award. This is the highest award a Cub can achieve, and any Cub who actively takes part in the programme can achieve this award.
When Cubs first join we ask them to make the Cub Scout Promise which explains to them what we are expecting from them. Scouting is not like school where there are strict rules, but we do expect a certain level of good behaviour. We want them to do their best and be kind and helpful to each other. Being older than Beavers, Cubs are expected to take more responsibility for their actions, but they can also help direct the programme and activities though pack forums and take an active part in the running of the programme.
