Just before your Beaver turns 8 years old they will begin their transition to Cubs. This means that they may attend Beavers and Cubs at the same time for a few weeks, whilst they get used to the move. It is still possible, however, subject to space availability, for a child to join the Scouting movement at Cub level. The Cub section is referred to as a Cub Pack and within the Pack, Cubs are divided into smaller groups called ‘Sixes’.

Both boys and girls aged between the ages 8–10½ years old, can enjoy a varied programme of activities such as backwoods cooking and fire lighting; knots and pioneering and Bushcraft skills. Cubs also have the opportunity to meet and compete with other Cubs within the District at archery, hiking and swimming.

Our Cub Pack meets on a Tuesday evening (term time only) between 6.30–8pm at the Vic Forster Scout Centre, Franklands Village, Haywards Heath, RH16 3RS. At present we have a maximum of 24 Cubs in the pack at any one time and currently hold a Waiting List – if you wish to be added to the list just press join now, enter your details and we will be in touch.
