Welcome to Cubs

Cubs meet on Thursday evenings from 18.30hrs to 20.00hrs during school term-time.

Activities

We follow the National Cub Scout Programme and include a range of activities to allow the Cubs to complete work towards challenge and activity badges. If a Cub completes all the relevant activities set on Pack nights, then they will progressively be awarded badges to display proudly on his uniform. Full details of all the badges can be found on the Scouting website.
Activities are indoor and outdoor and include map & compass work, tracking, short hikes, cooking, tent pitching, making camp gadgets, team and individual tasks, arts & crafts and educational items.

Investiture

New Cubs will be invested in four-six weeks once they have a Cub top and activity trousers and have learnt their Cub Scout Promise & Law. Investiture will take place at the start of the meeting – family members are welcome to attend.

Uniform

This can be bought from the Scoutshops on line at www.scouts.org.uk or The School Wear Shop 5 Goal Lane, Sudbury (01787) 881500.

Full uniform is to be worn by all Cubs in the Pack

  • Cub/Scout Trousers (Youth’s Scout Activity Trousers/blue combat style)
  • Scout Uniform Belt and Buckle
  • Green sweatshirt top.

These trousers are very hard wearing and this will bring the Cub Pack into line with the Scout Troop and the trousers can be worn in the Scout Troop when you go up. We will supply group scarf and woggle at investiture.

Camping

Cubs are usually invited to attend a District event once a year for a two-night camp.

Attendance

It is important that your child attends Cubs regularly, as we have drawn up a comprehensive and balanced programme of activities, for their enjoyment and education

Leaving

If your child has decided to leave, it would be appreciated if you would let us know, so we can allocate their space to someone on the waiting list.

Subscriptions

Subscriptions are payable to 1st Bures Cubs Scouts. They are currently £36.00 per term. Subscription money pays for membership fees to Gilwell Park £39.00, insurance, maintenance of Scout & Guide Headquarters/grounds, badges, day/evening out, fuel for mini bus, Pack nights, District events and Leaders travelling expenses.

Access to the Scout HQ

Access to the Scout Headquarters by car is from the Sudbury Road entrance (B1508) just passed the cottages (Croft End Cottage). You must ONLY access this entrance and EXIT via The Croft ensuring a One-way System is operational. This helps minimize traffic congestion. The speed limit along The Croft is 10mph. At no time should you exit via the Sudbury Road, as it is on a dangerous corner.

How to join the pack

Please contact us for joining queries, from time to time we have a joining list, please also contact us if you would like to add your child’s name on the joining list when he/she is approaching their eight birthday. The age range is from eight to ten years old.
