Cub Scout Page

Cub Scouts is for boys and girls aged 8 to 10* and is about adventure and learning new skills! *please note ages may vary up to 6 months.

What do Cub Scouts do?

Cub Scout programs are full of adventure and teamwork. Cub Scouts have trained leaders who will encourage cubs to participate in many scouting activities and adventures. Cub Scouts will learn the Salute, the Handshake, the Motto, the Grand Howl, Pack Calls, the Cub Scout Law and the Cub Scout Promise.  Cub Scout programs can involve:

  • learning about first aid
  • reading maps and compasses
  • camping
  • handcraft
  • knots
  • learning about the environment
  • 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.

Sixer Groups

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 Leaders

Cub Scout Leaders are adults. Each Leader is known as a character from Rudyard Kipling story the Jungle Book.

Cub Scout Promise

On my honour, I promise that I will do my best: to do my duty to my God, and to (the Queen of) Australia, to help other people, and to live by the Cub Scout Law.

Primary Cub Scout Badges

The Boomerang badges are the major part of Cub Scout training and aim to develop skills and awareness in self-responsibility, outdoor Scouting, Scouting values and principles, creativity, personal pursuits and interests, and awareness of the Cub Scout’s local and global community.

There are three levels of Boomerang: Bronze, Silver and Gold.
