Cubs is the second section of the Scouting movement, originally started in 1916 for younger brothers who wanted a ‘look-in’. In nearly a century, the section has constantly evolved and adapted its programme and methods to meet the changing needs of each generation of young people.
Cub Scouts are young people aged between 8 and 10½ who make up the second section of the Scouting family, between Beavers and Scouts. Under some circumstances, Cub Scouts can join the Pack as young as 7½ if, for example, they have friends joining at the same time, or are mature enough to move on early from Beavers, (and there is space in the Pack). Such decisions are taken by Cub and Beaver Scout leaders.
There are two Cub packs who meet at Morningside Parish Church on Thursday evenings:
– the 25th Braid Scout group (Oak Cub Pack – 7.15-8.30 and Ash Cub Pack – 6.00-7.15pm).
