The Cub Pack is the second section of the Scout Group following on from Beavers. Cub Scouts are boys and girls aged between 8 and 10 ½. Windmill Pack meet on Monday evenings during term time, from 6pm until 7.45pm. Meetings usually take place at North Leigh Primary School, but we go wherever the adventure takes us!
We are one of two North Leigh Cubs Packs, which shows that our group is growing in size and strength, and we hope you’ll want to be a part of it too!
→ What do we get up to?
As you can see from the ‘Latest News’ part of the website, we do lots of different things! This includes making bivouacs, going on hikes, outdoor cooking, learning about knots and putting it in to practice, playing games, learning about other countries, making things, first aid, map reading and the list goes on and on!
We also love to go camping, and aim to camp at least once each year. Recent camps include Pack Camp, Sixer and Seconder Camp, the Christmas Sleepover, PGL, OxonJam (a County Camp for all sections), Viking Camp, and Secret Agent Camp!
The fun never stops in Cubs!
Our balanced programme allows us to work towards the Chief Scout Silver Award, the highest award in Cub Scouts, which is earnt by completing all 7 challenge awards and 6 activity badges.
There are many other badges for the Cubs to earn, many of which are covered in the programme. Additionally, some Cubs enjoy earning other badges outside of Cubs, which we may not be able to cover, such as the martial arts activity badge or the equestrian activity badge. If you have a hobby, there may be a badge that you’ve already been able to earn!
