- learning about first aid
- reading maps and compasses

- learning about water-safety skills
- playing exciting games
- team work
Cub Scout Meetings
Cub Scouts meet every Wednesday night at the Den from 6.30pm to 8.00pm during school terms.
Cub Scout Packs are divided into `Sixes’ because each `Six’ has 6 people in it. Cub Scouts are provided a colour patch to place on their uniform in the colour of their six.
Sixers Group Leaders
In each ‘Six’ there will be a ‘Sixer’ (like a school captain) and a ‘Second’ as a helper (like a vice-school captain).
Cub Scout Leaders are adults. Each Leader is known as a character from Rudyard Kipling story the Jungle Book.
