What is Cub Scouting?

Cub Scouts are young people usually aged between 8 and 10½  years old.  They belong to the second Section of the Scouting family, and can move up to the next Section, Scouts, between the ages of 10 and 11.

There are loads of fun things that  Cub Scouts can do.  They get the chance to try lots of different activities like swimming, music, exploring, computing and collecting, many of which they can get a badge for which they can wear on their uniform.

Cub Scouts also get to go on trips and days out, to places like the zoo, theme parks or a farm.  They also have the opportunity to go camping with their Pack.  This will mean them sleeping in tents and taking part in loads of outdoor activities.


100 Years of Cub Scouting?

County Cub Camp (2011)

Posted on 11 July 2011 • 


The annual County Cub Camp was held at the beginning of July at Corf Scout Campsite, attended by over 400 from most of the Packs on the Island.  This year the theme was Around the World, with the winning design for the camp badge being submitted by a cub from 1st Yarmouth.  Cubs visited bases around the campsite on the Saturday taking part in International themed activities.  Later that day, the Cubs (and Leaders!) were judged on their fancy dress.  The camp was then entertained by friends from Hertfordshire with the 'Carrots Roadshow' which was a disco involving some of the Leaders dressing up and miming or dancing to music.  The day ended with the popular Camp Fire with the cubs still hyped up from the Roadshow.  The Rev. Roger Whatley, West Wight District Scout Chaplain, conducted a 'Cubs Own' on the Sunday before the prizegiving and official closing ceremony.

During the Saturday, 100 Beavers came to Corf for their annual Beaverabout on the main field, spending the day on activities, concluding with their own performance of the 'Carrots Roadshow'. (Click here for pictures.)
