Welcome to the Jungle!

Using the Jungle Map of balanced program activities as a guideline, Cubs explore new challenges and plan adventures as a Pack. Together, you and your fellow Cubs will navigate the very same jungle that Mowgli roamed in The Jungle Book. The jungle is a fun place to seek out new challenges that you can face either as a Pack or with your Lair.

Cubs are accompanied by Bagheera, Baloo, Hathi and Akela – symbolic representations selected for the Scouters, who guide and support your Pack and Lair through all your adventures. Each area on the map puts the six program areas of Scouting into practice: Environment & Outdoors, Leadership, Active & Healthy Living, Citizenship, Creative Expression and Beliefs & Values. By planning and organizing with fellow Cubs, you can use Trail Cards to explore fun ways of learning the program areas. For example, you may want to visit Council Rock on the map, which calls for a demonstration in leadership. This will encourage you to think of leadership opportunities to achieve, like bringing a friend to your next Scouting meeting and introducing them to your Lair.

The Jungle Map for the Cub Scout Section depicts the six Program Areas of the Canadian Path as places to visit in the jungle, all inspired by the Cubs’ symbolic framework of The Jungle Book.
