Cub Scouts (Age: 8 to 11)
Continue to create the path on your Scouting Journey through fun learning new skills, continuing to be challenged, and adventure in the outdoors.
As Cubs, we all help each other and try to help others in the community too. Cub Scouts work in patrols and get to see and do a lot of different activities. We spend weekends away together camping, fishing, and exploring. We also learn core, land, and water skills.
Having these patrols when we go on adventures and activities allows for everything to be easier to complete because we work as a team.
A Cub Unit is made up of a group of Youth Members and their Section Leaders. It is the role of the Leaders to organize the Unit Councils to plan, with the Cubs, what activities the section will run each term.
Cub Scouts that are on the Unit Council can be involved in planning, this will happen by talking with leaders and brainstorming activities. This allows for the Leaders to know that all members of the Unit Council are happy with the chosen activities.
Cubs participate in the Scouts Australia Awards Pathway. This involves the use of the Special Interest Area during the section and the Outdoor Adventure Skills Pathway that follows the Youth Member through their Scouting Journey.
The Special Interest Areas (SIAs) consists of:
• Adventure & Sport
• Arts & Literature
• Creating a Better World
• Growth & Development
• STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics) & Innovation
The Outdoor Adventure Skills (OAS) Pathway consist of:
• 3 Core: Bushcraft, Bushwalking, and Camping
• 3 Land: Alpine, Cycling and Vertical
• 3 Water: Aquatics, Boating, and Paddling
During their time in Cubs, all Cubs will be working their way towards their Peak Award. This Peak Award for the Cub Section is known as the Grey Wolf Award.
