Develop new skills. Soar to great heights, Being a Cub opens up a whole other world full of adventure, friendship and fun!
Who are Cubs?
Cubs are young people aged 8 to 10 ½ who:
- Have a sense of adventure and go on fun adventures.
- Master new skills and try new things
- Make friends
- Are curious about the world around them
- Help others and make a difference in their own communities and beyond.
Our Cub Pack meets every Thursday evening during term time from 6:30 pm – 8 pm at our HQ.
What do Cubs get up to?
Being a Cub is all about growing and learning in small but mighty ways.
Cubs get to take part in lots and lots of fun, adventurous and exciting activities, both indoors and outdoors. They are introduced to exciting scouting, camping and outdoors skills, and have opportunities to earn lots of badges and awards which recognise their achievement of all their activities and commitment. As well as partaking in a wide range of different activities, they go on trips, days out, camps, residential visits, get involved in the local community and events within the Group, Reigate District and Surrey County. All while making new friends, exploring the outdoors and trying adventurous activities.
Many of our Cubs also achieve the Chief Scouts Silver Award – the highest award a Cub Scout can achieve, before progressing into the Scout section.

The Cub Scout Promise
As well as enjoying plenty of adventures, being a Cub is about going on a journey to understand who you are and what you stand for. When you join the Pack, you’ll explore these ideas by making a promise.
Once new starters have learned the Promise and attended a few weeks of Cubs they are asked to get a uniform before being formally invested into the Scouting Movement. Parents are invited to attend this special ceremony.
There are several variations of the Cub Scout Promise to reflect the range of faiths, beliefs and nationalities in the UK within Scouting, including an option for those with no faith. All the variations are available here.
The Cub Scout Law
Cub Scouts always do their
Think of others before themselves
And do a good turn every day.
The Scout Motto
A uniform is required in Cub Scouts. More information on this can be found in the member’s handbook.
