Cub Scouts (Age: 8 to 12)
Continue or Start to create the path on your Scouting journey through having fun, learning new skills, continuing to be challenged, and adventuring 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 range 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 together as a team.
A Cub Unit is made up of a group of Youth Members and their Section Leader/s. 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 are those that have demonstrated strong leadership skills and kindness. They are involved in planning weekly activities, group night, camps, and major outings. This allows for the Leaders to know that all members of the Unit Council are happy with the chosen activities. They also run games and activities as their skills build.
Cubs participate in the Scouts Australia Award Pathway. This involves working on the Special Interest Areas during Cubs and the Outdoor Adventure Skills Pathway, that follows the Youth Member through their Scouting Journey.
The Special Interest Areas (SIAs) consists of:
• Adventure and Sport
• Arts and Literature
• Creating a Better World

The Outdoor Adventure Skills (OAS) Pathway consist of:
• 3 Core: Bushcraft, Bushwalking, and Camping
• 3 Land: Alpine, Cycling, and Vertical

During their time in Cubs, all Cubs will work towards their Peak Award. This Peak Award for the Cub Section is known as the Grey Wolf Award. Cubs will be presented with badges along the way as they achieve certain milestones.
