Cub Scouts are aged 8 – 11 years old. This section has a focus on:
- Creating an individual path and setting up for new challenges
- Developing leadership responsibilities
- Understanding the community
- Developing problem-solving skills
- Great adventures in nature
Each week Cub Scouts get together for about an hour an a half for fund and adventures. Cub Scouts have a role as part of a Patrol (small team) and a Unit (all Cub Scouts as group).
Cub Scouts begin to decide their own adventures and take more responsibility in the Scouting process. They explore further into nature and their communities, building understanding of their responsibilities to both. Their activities include sports meetings, visits to interesting destinations such as factories and fire department headquarters, plus trips to the zoo and museums. One very important learning area is bushcraft.
