For Cubs, excitement and adventure are key. Their programme offers a huge variety of activities surrounding areas of fitness, global and beliefs; whilst allowing them to be creative and get involved in their local communities. Cubs are introduced to exciting outdoor skills and take part in adventurous activities, as well as camps and residential experiences.

The Cub Pack is the second section of the Scout Group following on from Beavers. Cub Scouts are young people aged between 8 and 10 ½.  There is flexibility in the age range:  young people can join from age 7½, and can move to Scouts between age 10 and 11.

If you are interest in joining in on the fun, then come along to one of the weekly meets, or contact our (GSL) Group Scout Leader :
