Cub Scouts are the second section in the Scouting family, aged between 8 – 10.5 years. Cubs was originally started in 1916 for younger brothers who wanted a ‘look-in’. In nearly a century, the section has constantly evolved and adapted its programme and methods to meet the changing needs of each generation of young people.
Cubs do loads of fun things. You will get a chance to try lots of different activities like swimming, music, exploring, computing and collecting. Doing these successfully will give you the chance to earn badges to wear on your uniform.
1st Ince and Elton Cubs also get to go on trips and days out, either as a pack, or with other packs in the District. You will also get to go camping in Cubs. Each February, we usually run an indoor “camp” – often the first experience a Cub has of being away from Mum and Dad. Later in the year, as it starts to get warmer and the nights start drawing out, we go on a weekend camp at a local Scout campsite which gives Cubs the chance to sleep in tents and get involved in outdoor activities.
1st Ince and Elton Cub Pack meets on Thursday evenings at the Scout HQ. If you are interested in joining Cubs at 1st Ince and Elton please click on the image above.

I promise that I will do my best
To do my duty to God and to the Queen
