A whole new world awaits: new heights, new skills, new friends.

Cubs is Scouts for young people aged 8-10½.

Learn and grow with your friends through adventure

Develop new skills. Soar to great heights. Being a Cub opens up a whole other world.

Cubs are young people aged 8 to 10½ who try new things, have fun and go on adventures, make new friends, are curious about the world around them, help others and make a difference, in their own communities and beyond.

Every week, they gather in groups called Cub Packs to take part in lots of interesting and challenging activities – achieving anything they set their minds to, and having lots of fun along the way.

We work towards the Chief Scout's Silver award

Cubs complete their challenge awards to earn the top award for the section

Being a Scout is all about giving new things a go, and growing as a person, and from your very first day as a Cub, you'll be earning badges and awards, starting with your World Membership Badge, and going from there. You can work towards as many as you like, at your own pace, and by the time you've left the Cub pack and joined the Scout troop, you'll have badges all over your sweater!

Our main goal is to give each Cub Scout the opportunity to earn the coveted Chief Scout's Silver Award - the top award for members of the Cub Pack - by helping them earn all seven of their challenge awards and six activity badges.

Earning challenge awards and activity badges

Challenge awards are designed to do exactly that - challenge you. They make you step outside of your comfort zone, try things you wouldn't usually be interested in, or take the lead on something that you think is a bit scary. Earning a challenge award is a huge achievement, and you'll need to complete a number of ambitious tasks - not just within your colony, but in the wider community.

We give our Cubs loads of support along the way, by creating and taking part in a wide range of events and activities that will help them earn activity badges as part of completing their challenges and, as they reach the end of their journey with Cubs, we'll give them a personal challenge to work on in the run up to completing their time in the colony.

Earning activity badges away from Beavers

We also recognise the progress and efforts our Cubs put in outside of their meetings, events and activities that we run, and many of the badges available to Cubs give our young members a platform to show off their progress in the things they do every day, encouraging them to try new things and form new interests.

Our Cub Scout Leaders will talk to you about the badges your young person can work on outside of Cubs, and let you know how your Cub can tell us all about the work they're doing towards them.

You can look at all the activity badges available for Cubs to work towards on the Scouts website.


Join Cubs at a group in Warwick District

We welcome all young people between 8 and 10½ years of age

Joining Beavers with us is a great way to get your young person started on their Scouting journey. Our groups have a fantastic track record of keeping young people interested, with many of our Explorers having once been Cubs with groups in our district.

Cubs is open to all, and we are usually able to tweak things to make sure that everyone is able to join in the fun. If you've got any questions about how we can make Cubs accessible to your young person, get in touch with us and we'll have a chat. Being upfront from the start gives us the advantage of being able to work together in partnership to ensure that your young person has the best possible experience in Scouts.

What you’ll need in order to join

All you need to do is register your details on our new members waiting list. As soon as your young person reaches the age to join Cubs, and we have a space in a colony near you, one of our Cub Scout Leaders will get in touch with you and invite you and your young person to your first session.

You won't need a uniform to join Cubs, but once you've joined and settled in, you'll be earning all sorts of brilliant badges, so you'll need somewhere to put them. When your young person is nearly ready to make their Promise, we’ll let you know how to get your uniform.

Invest in your young person’s future with us

By joining Scouts, your young person becomes part of a worldwide movement, dedicated to helping them develop skills they can use in the real world, while having fun, adventure and making new friends. Many of our Scout Groups across the District offer a free trial to help you decide whether Beavers is for you and your young person. After this, membership subscription fees will become due.
