Thursday Cubs

Cub Scouts is for boys and girls aged 8 to 10 years, and focuses on exploring the outdoors, discovery and learning interesting things! Cub Scouts belong to a Pack and begin to learn leadership and teamwork in small teams called Sixes.

If you enjoy fun, games and learning new skills then you’ll love being a Cub Scout! You’ll get to go on camps with your Pack, and you might attend a Cuboree camp with hundreds of other Cub Scouts! As well as learning things like how to use a compass, you’ll go on bushwalks, bike trips, and have the chance to do things like sailing, canoeing, abseiling and sometimes even flying!

Your Cub Scout Leader will help you along the way and encourage you to take part. You’ll learn life-long skills, make friends and have fun! Cub Scouts are keen to learn, belong, and have fun, so our activities are designed to stimulate their emotional and adventurous spirits.

Cub Scouts meets from 6:30pm to 8pm.

The section is supported by the following Adult Leaders:

Prue (Chil) - Cub Scout Leader

Hi, I’m Chil the Thursday Cub Unit Leader. I’ve been with Greenbank Scout Group since 2012, joining when my own children were cub scouts. As my children moved on to Scouts and then Venturers and I stayed with the cubs. I have completed basic and advanced training and earned my Wood Beads in 2017.

Cubs scouts are such a great age group as they are inquisitive, keen to learn and discover the wonders of the world around them.

I love watching the cubs grow in confidence, independence and learn valuable life skills, but that is only part of the reason I keep coming back each year. It also the many new skills I’ve learned, the challenges I’ve overcome and the fears I’ve faced that have made this scouting thing so rewarding. I have made some great friends along the way and am grateful for the opportunities scouting has given to me.
