About Cubs


The Cub Scout section offers an exciting and challenging programme for Children between eight and ten and a half years old.

You will get a chance to try lots of different activities like climbing, swimming, music, exploring, computing and collecting.

Cub Scouting is not School! Here you learn life skills that you will use for the rest of your life.

Cub Scouts start to learn “life skills”, like – cooking, tying knots, map and compass work and first-aid.

Cub Scouts earn badges for the activities that they take part in and the challenges that they complete as they work towards the Chief Scout’s Silver Award, before moving up to Scouts at the age of ten and a half.

Here at Bethesda we try to get the Cub Scouts involved with District and County Events. The highlight of the year are our annual Cub Camps and Pack Holidays, where the Cubs get to go away for a weekend with the Leaders and have even more fun and practice their new found skills.

Most of all being involved in Cub Scouting means lots of fun!

There are 2 Cub Packs, one on a Monday and the other on a Thursday. Each pack is split into smaller groups called “Sixes”.
