To be a Cub Scout, you must be aged between 8 and 10 and a half years of age. You will join a group of boys & girls who meet in a Scout Groups Headquarters where you will work & play in teams called "Sixes". When you meet together, it is called a pack meeting. All Cubs wear a uniform and the evenings are organised by leaders and parent helpers.
There are loads of fun things that you can do as a Cub Scout. You will get a chance to try lots of different activities such as outdoor and fitness challenges, swimming, music, exploring, computing and creative collecting. If you do them really well (the best that you can do), you can earn badges which you can wear on your uniform.
If you are interested in joining Cub Scouts as either a Cub or an adult helper, please contact us and the ADC (Assistant District Commissioner) will contact you with the information that you need to know.
We have Cub packs in Sandiacre, Breaston, Draycott & Wilne, Sawley and various areas of Long Eaton such as College Street, Tamworth Road & Trent College. We all usually meet during term time. All Leaders have undergone training and are continually assessed. All Leaders meet about three times a year and we can keep in touch with what his happening in the District.
