Cubs is now the third 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, and these days admits girls as well as boys.

Cub Scouts are usually aged between 8 and 10 ½. They meet together in Packs  and are a member of a ‘Six’ which is lead by one of their peers.
