Cubs Term Plans

 

 


Cub Scouts are young people aged between 8 and 10 1/2, who make up the second section of the Scouting family, between Beavers and Scouts.

Joining

Under some circumstances, Cub Scouts can join the Pack as young as 7 1/2 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.

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

Cubs 100 – The Wildest Birthday Ever!

Celebrating 100 years of Cub Scouts in 2016

In 2016 we will commemorate one hundred years of the Cub Scout section with local and national celebrations. To help you celebrate we’ve produced four resource packs full of programme ideas and activities to help you make the most of this amazing year. They’re designed to support different events and opportunities throughout 2016, as well as offering a whole years worth of programme ideas that you can use in your Pack.

Cub Scouts themselves have a massive role to play in this special year. The resources will help you get them involved in the planning, and to help choose and organise the activities, whilst also working towards gaining badges and awards.

Cubs is the second section of the Scouting movement, 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, and these days admits girls as well as boys.

Devon Cubs have had a song written for them to celebrate the cub scout centenary.

Lyrics

Cub Scouts

(Centenary Celebration)

Chorus

Cub Scouts gathered together,

Cub Scouts, on this special night.

Cub Scouts singing together,

Making our voices unite.

We’re gonna keep singing ‘till the morning light.

We’re gonna celebrate. We’re gonna do it right.

We’re gonna keep Akela awake all night!

Tonight, tonight, tonight, tonight.

One hundred years ago tonight was the night the Cubs were born.

Verse 1

Be prepared to have an adventure.

Be prepared to find new friends.

Looking for fun? Here is the answer,

Fun and adventure again and again.

Be prepared to help when we’re needed.

Be prepared to lend a hand.

Work for a cause until we’ve succeeded.

Working together – together we stand.

Chorus

Verse 2

Be prepared to join our big fam’ly.

Be prepared to hold out your hand.

All round the world our sisters and brothers,

Brothers and sisters in every land.

Bridge

And no one’s alone when they’re a Cub Scout.

Your Six will be with you, without a doubt.

There are so many things for you to find out

When you become a Cub Scout.

Chorus

Cub Scouts gathered together,

Cub Scouts, on this special night.

Cub Scouts singing together,

Making our voices unite.

We’re gonna keep singing ‘till the morning light.

We’re gonna celebrate. We’re gonna do it right.

We’re gonna keep Akela awake all night,

Tonight, tonight.

Tonight, tonight.

One hundred years ago tonight was the night the Cubs were born.
