Our Cub Scout Packs are for children aged from 8 to 10½ years old although existing Beavers can move on to Cubs at 7 years and 6 months. We run two packs, The Rowallan Pack on a Tuesday and the Fullarton Pack on a Thursday. Both packs meet between 7:00pm and 8:30pm.
The Pack is organised into small groups called Sixes. An older Cub Scout, called a Sixer, leads each Six. After a few weeks of going to meetings, a cub will be welcomed into the Pack at a simple Investiture ceremony to recite the Cub Promise and Law.
Our Packs usually meet all year round excluding summer and Christmas holidays and there are other activities such as outings and camping weekends. The varied programme highlights the care of the environment, personal safety, finding out more about the local community and cultures and customs of other people. Cub Scouts work towards awards and badges. These include joining-in badges for each year of membership of cubs, challenge badges for demonstrating skills in five different areas and up to 37 activity badges.
Our two packs also have regular activity sleepovers throughout the year usually in our hall. These are usually centred around a particular theme and allow the Cubs to complete one or more badges over a weekend. Cubs also take part in other weekends including Lochearnhead, a Skills Camp and Group Camp. These weekends count towards many of the Staged Activity badges offered in Scouting.
