Organization

The youth meet in a group called a Pack, which is further broken down into Sixes (ideally containing six Cubs). Each six has youth leaders called a Sixer and a Second.

In addition, a pack may send a Keeo to the Colony as a youth leader, and a Kim may come down from the Troop as a youth leader.

CHANGING! Under the Canadian Path program revitalization, smaller groups are called Lairs. Leadership is shared among the third year Cubs, called Howlers. Assistant leadership with Colony can be done with second years Cubs, called Trackers.

Program

CHANGING! Under the Canadian Path program revitalization, Cub Scouts can work at they level appropriate stages of the Outdoor Adventure Skills badges.

The Cub Scout program is divided into six activity areas. Each activity area provides various learning opportunities -- Cub Scouts can develop/modify their attitudes while gaining skills and knowledge in that particular activity area.[1]

The six activity areas are:

Activity Area Star Award
The Natural World Black-star.gif Black Star CanadianWildernessAward.png Canadian Wilderness Award
The Outdoors Green-star.gif Green Star CanadianCamperAward.png Canadian Camper Award
Creative Expression Tawny-star.gif Tawny Star CanadianArtsAward.png Canadian Arts Award
Health and Fitness Red-star.gif Red Star CanadianHealthyLivingAward.png Canadian Healthy Living Award
Home and Community Blue-star.gif Blue Star CanadianFamilyCareAward.png Canadian Family Care Award
Canada and the World Purple-star.gif Purple Star WorldCitizenAward.png World Citizen Award


Within each area, Cub growth and development is recognized by a star (which provides broad introductory skills and knowledge), a number of Cub badges (which offer increased knowledge and skills focused on a specific aspect of the activity area) and Cub awards (which recognizes broad and increased knowledge and skills relating to the activity area).

There are also Cub Speciality Badges, which recognize specialties for each Cub Scout and Cub Scout Pack.

Achievement over time in all six activity areas results in a well-rounded young citizen with knowledge and skills in:

  • the outdoors
  • cultural pursuits
  • personal fitness
  • moral and ethical development
  • responding and contributing to her/his local and world community.

With the Cub motto of "Do Your Best" front and centre, Cubs in each "Cub Pack" are encouraged to try new and more challenging activities.

As Scouters leading the Cub Pack, it is important to plan meetings that fit the overall program.
