Cubs Activities



During their time in the Pack, Cub Scouts will get a chance to try lots of different activities like swimming, music, exploring, computing and collecting.


There are a range of badges available which Cub Scouts can wear on their uniforms to show everyone how well they're doing.


Cub Scouts also get to go on trips and days out, to places like the zoo, theme parks or a farm. Sometimes they will be able to go camping with the rest of the Pack and take part in all kinds of outdoor activities.

Activity badges

Many of the badges available are activity badges, which allow Cub Scouts to show their progress in existing pursuits, but also to try all kinds of new things and form new interests.



Staged Activity Badges

Some activities have staged badges, as the Cub shows more knowledge/experience in a particular activity, the staged badge reflects this.
