Cubs

Develop new skills. Soar to great heights. Being a Cub opens up a whole other world.

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 7:30pm and 8:45pm.

Cub Scout Promise

All Cub Scouts make the promise when they are invested.

I promise that I will do my best
to uphold our Scout values,
to do my duty to The King,
to help other people
and to keep the Cub Scout Law.

Cub Scout Law

Our Cub Scout law is a set of values that all members of our pack abide by.

Cub Scouts always do their best,
think of others before themselves
and do a good turn every day.

Our Sixes

Sixes are the teams we use in Cubs. Normally we would have 6 sixes in the pack (however due to size, we can have up to 7) who compete during weekly meetings for points which are tallied over the year before our annual awards evening when the six with the most points is awarded a prize. Each six is led by a senior Cub Scout called a Sixer who is supported in leading by a Seconder.

Badges

Throughout your time as a Cub Scout, our young people work towards a number of badges. These badges are sewn onto the Cub uniform to showcase the skills they have learnt.

We have 3 main types of badges:

Activity Badges
From Animal Carer to World Faiths, activity badges are earned for taking part in meetings over the term

Staged Activity Badges
Staged activity badges cover skills that you will develop over your time as a Beaver, Cub, and Scout. From Nights Away to Swimming, these badges have a small number on them so you can see your progress

Challenge Badges
Challenge badges are usually completed over a number of weeks/months. Earning all of the challenge badges will award the Chief Scout’s Silver Award, the highest award a Cub Scout can earn.

Notes
  1. Staged Activity Badges have a turquoise background and are awarded for a variety of things.There have been a lot of new ones added to the list in 2015. There is also an International Staged Badge unique to Scotland.
  2. There are 7 new Challenge Badges, all of which need to be earned to complete the Chief Scout Silver Award. They are arranged on the Uniform as above however there is no set order.
  3. Chief Scout Award shown is the Silver Award which they hopefully achieve by the end of Cubs. Any Cub who was in Beavers and achieved their Chief Scout Bronze Award should wear it on their Cub Uniform in the position above and arrange the Cub Challenge Badges as shown.

Badges to transfer to Cub or Scout Uniform: (Only to be sewn on AFTER Investiture)

  • Any Staged Activity Badges (Highest ones only, e.g. If a Member has Nights Away 1 and 5 and Musician 1 and 2 then only the Night Away 5 and Musician 2 get transferred.
  • Current Joining In Award
  • Chief Scout Silver Award (if earned) is usually presented at the end of Cubs and the Moving on Award on the first night at Scouts, both of which go on the Scout Uniform. Similarly a Cub who earned the Chief Scout Bronze Award in Beavers should wear it on their Cub Uniform.

Badge position on Right sleeve and Purple Membership Badge remain constant for all Members from Beavers to Leaders, with only the Section Name Tape changing. (A new set of badges is given at Investiture into the next Section therefore none of these need transferred). To avoid any confusion, the sleeves on the photo are folded forward to show all badges. Please remember to stitch the badges on facing outwards.

All Activity / Staged Activity Badges go on the Left sleeve, in any order, starting at the top.

Members should not wear ANY Badges on their Uniform until after Investiture.

PLEASE do not glue / adhere badges onto Uniform as this makes removal or changing position very difficult. Please sew all badges in place.

Guidance will be given on position of all event badges, e.g. Giant Sleepover goes on left sleeve along with Activity Badges. Only current badges should remain on Uniform. Dated Badges should only be worn for that year, or like with GSO until the next one. Any surplus or old badges can be sewn on to a Campfire Blanket.
