District Cub Scouts
Cub Scouts are young people aged between 8 and 10½, who make up the second section of the Scouting family, between Beavers and Scouts.


Under some circumstances, Cub Scouts can join the Pack as young as 7½ if, for example, they have friends joining at the same time, or are mature enough to move on early from Beavers, (and there is space in the Pack). Such decisions are taken by Cub and Beaver Scout leaders.


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.

Structure and organisation

A Pack of Cub Scouts is organised into Sixes, with each Six named after a colour, and a Sixer and a Seconder in charge.

The recommended maximum size of a Cub Scout Pack is 36 Cub Scouts. To meet local circumstance this maximum number may be increased, either in the long term or the short term with the agreement of the Group Scout Leader.

District Quiz

Well done the team from the 1st Bungay Pack who won this year's very well fought District quiz.

Five Packs took part with only the 1st Earsham not represented.

The 1st Bungay Cubs now go forward to represent Waveney Valley District at the Suffolk County Cub Quiz. We wish them good luck.

Here are some recent Cub Scout activities.
