Cub Scouts is all about
• Scouts creating their own paths and setting the challenges
• More established leadership responsibilities
• Developing new skills
• Understanding their communities
• Developing problem-solving skills
• Greater adventures in nature
Cubs Scouts will decide their own adventures and take more responsibility in the process of Plan>Do>Review>. They’ll explore further into nature and their communities, building an understanding of their responsibilities to both. Their active imaginations will help them understand their roles as part of a Patrol and Unit as social groups become increasingly important.
Creativity and imagination are at the centre of the Cub Scout experience. Cubs Scouts will develop and use skills and ideas to make their program more adventurous, fun, challenging, and inclusive. Cub Scouts will work as a Patrol to problem-solve, to make, construct, design and invent. Their diverse program of creative, outdoor, personal growth, and community challenges will promote them to be active, express themselves, build confidence and conquer fears.
Cub Scouts will build on existing interests and discover new ones, sharing many of these with their Scouting peers.
Cub Scout Meeting Times
Cub Scouts generally meet once a week for around an hour and a half to two hours depending on the Scout Group and the program. Cub Scouts will also participate in weekend activities, overnight camps and sleepovers as well as attend Group nights.
Group nights are where all sections at your Scout Group attend on the same night to participate in joint activities and are generally held once a term. It is a great way for the members of the Group to get to know each other and makes linking to the next section an easier progression.
Cub Scout Leaders
All Scouts WA Leaders have a Working with Children Check card issued by the Department of Communities and a National Police Check. Cub Scout Leaders undertake nationally accredited leader training specific to the Cub Scout section.
