Cubs (for boys and girls ages 8-10)

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

The six activity areas are:

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

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.
