Who We Are

Cub Scouts collectively form a 'Pack' - just as Beavers form a 'Colony', Scouts a 'Troop' and Explorer Scouts a 'Unit'. They are normally aged between eight and ten and a half years old. We automatically phase them into the Troop.

We normally have 24 - 36 Cub Scouts who are supervised by Leaders and Young Leaders. The Cubs are organised into 'sixes'.

Our Cub Scouts can be recognised by their green sweatshirt, dark red necker and long, dark blue activity trousers.

What We Do

There are loads of fun things that you can do as a Cub Scout. You will get a chance to try lots of different activities like swimming, music, exploring, computing and collecting. If you do them properly you will get a badge which you can wear on your uniform.

Cub Scouts also get to go on trips and days out, to places like the zoo, theme parks or a farm. Sometimes you will be able to go camping with the rest of your Pack. This will mean you sleeping in a tent and doing loads of outdoor activities.

Below are some of the activities that we enjoy.

  • Climbing
  • Shooting
  • Archery
  • Winter and Summer Camps
  • Survival Camp
  • District Camp
  • Fun nights
  • Canoeing on the Lancaster Canal
  • District Quiz
  • District Swimming Gala
  • Night hike from Lytham to St Annes
  • Parties

Our Cub Scout Promise, Law and Motto

As a member of the Scout Movement, when you join the Cub Scouts, you make the Cub Scout Promise :

Our Cub Scout Promise

I promise that I will do my best
To do my duty to God and to the Queen,
To help other people
And to keep the Cub Scout Law

We all regularly renew this promise, especially when new members join and at the annual District St. George's Day service.

Our Cub Scout Law

Cub Scouts always do their best
Think of others before themselves
And do a good turn every day.

Our Cub Scout Motto

Be Prepared
